About Me

I love to explore, be outdoors, and meet new people.
I lived in Buenos Aires for a year, where I studied and taught English. My Spanish is rusty, but I'd be happy to practice!
I'm from the DC area originally. Since I've lived here for most of my life, I like to introduce people to the cooler side of this city and see their fresh impressions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I first got started with CS when I lived in Buenos Aires because there is a big community there! I met some great people, and I continue to meet interesting and open people through this site.


I like to ride bikes, meet cute dogs, practice yoga, and eat berries. In DC there are a ton of amazing museums that I like to explore on weekends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Stood with 500,000 people who are against the Trump administration at the Women's March in Washington!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to knit, practice my Spanish with you, or if there's time, take you to cool, free museums in DC.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I won a Capital Bikeshare membership in a raffle, but barely ever use it since I have my own bike. You are welcome to use my membership while you are in town, as long as your return the key :)

Countries I’ve Visited
