About Me


Ultimately... to save the Universe.


I grew up in the Windy City but have always had a hard time staying still. Traveled a lot with my mother when I was younger and took the habit of being on a plane into my adult life.

Now I embark on a series of creative endeavors to keep my feet planted on the ground... for as long as possible.

So much work to be done in the clouds though...


I'm a cat person

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm not much for meetings and it's probably been over a year since I've been to any couch-surfing events.

But I did just move into a new place with a nice gigantic-sized couch in the fancy part of town...


I've only ever slept on maybe two or three couches... but I must say that ALL of those experiences were positive. Lots of really good people and I absolutely always learned something new.

I've hosted lots of people, but I haven't hosted anyone since moving to Berlin (it's been three years now.)


Writing, photography, videography, languages, biking, music, gazing.
