About Me

I'm free thinking and very ambitious about the world. I am an artist and explorer at heart, idealist and healer by practice. I am trying to learn as much as I can from the world through various cultures. I work as a clinician, do public health work, and teach. I love meeting new people, having fun and interesting conversations, exchanging culture and knowledge, and trying new things =)

I live my life to learn and experience as much as I can. The universe is a beautiful place!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

** Welcome back, after the Covid-19 pandemic began:
I am fully vaccinated with Pfizer, boosted (10/18/2021). I am a healthcare worker and my partner is a teacher- so there may be some assumed increased risk due to our work.

Some remarks about harm reduction around Covid-19: I am only meeting and hosting persons who have completed their primary vaccination series, followed by a booster dose if beyond 6 months since last primary vaccine. We can discuss recent travel, locations, and if need for any Covid testing as we plan.

Everyone is connected!
I love meeting new people, showing travelers around, and eventually find myself even being shown around by traveler friends. It's always an adventure! I host as much as I can manage.

Limping through Machu Picchu in awe and wonder.


I am interested in art, different cultures, the environment, medicine and science, human rights, music (especially live music!), chatting about anything and everything, being adventurous, and embracing the chances to take on an opportunity!
