About Me


Living and loving each moment intensely!


I am a friendly person, get along with many different types of people well. I love to learn new things, go new places, and meet new people. What!? shocking

I have attention issues, I get distracted, at the same time I can multi-task like a champion so it is not a huge problem.

I am a great debater but I don't enjoy nasty conflicts, violence, verbal or otherwise is not the answer.

Don't discriminate in fact I criminate all the time, especially bike thieves if I see you stealing bikes I'm calling the police, ROOOXanne, ever tried that drinking game, it will kill you. I don't really play drinking games anymore, preferring to drink my beer nice and slow in the sweet shade of a tree watching the setting sun. I try not judge people harshly, cause people are weird and different, and that is good and proper and one of the most wonderful things in life.

I am a good judge of character, it's my superpower, along with teleportation (oh I would rob so many banks)


We are here to learn how to live forever one small mortal moment at a time. The infinite must be experienced in small doses in order to be understood and loved.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am in South America right now! I have just travelled here (Colombia) from Guatemala. Getting from Panama to Colombia is the longest border crossing I have ever experienced, it basically took five days. It is my first trip away from North America and I am so excited. I am especially interested in improving my spanish. Espero es mejorando todo el tiempo.


guessing what time it is by the position of the sun, making music, drawing, improvising songs, sleeping, dreaming crazy dreams, painting, imaginating, dancing, empathy, making up games on streets and in cars, handling emergencies, singing soul music while riding my bike
