About Me


Currently traveling in South America



I'm originally from NYC but have lived in San Francisco, LA and Beijing. I've traveled extensively in Latin America and am now in SE Asia!

I'm traveling for a year after quitting my job.

I'm always imagining a new travel, and am happiest when I have a trip to look forward to.

I'm interested in books, art, indie music, vintage clothing, and good food.

I like silly humor, scrabble, and coffee.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm hoping to use this as a way of meeting up with locals when I travel, and travelers when I am a local.


Trying new food, good coffee, indie music, festivals, scuba diving!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It's hard to pick! Carnaval in Salvador was a highlight, as is the Oaxaca Coast. My favorite thing may have been scuba diving with hammerheads in Nicaragua!
