About Me


Eat at 1 new restaurant in the city every month.


I am a student at the University of San Francisco in San Francisco, California, studying Communications with a minor in Legal Studies. After I graduate I hope to move to New York City (I'm a city girl, always will be). Some of my favorite activities include dancing, reading, and traveling (obviously). I love going out to eat, as eating is one of my favorite things to do and there is an endless supply of good food in San Francisco. I always enjoy a night out with friends and drinks, but I also like to stay at home and watch a good movie or just hang out. I like outdoors activities, including but not limited to hiking, picnics, swimming, wakeboarding, going for walks or runs, camping, and the like. I'm a very opinionated and open-minded person, and often do not get along well with people who are not. You are more than entitled to your own ideas and preferences, but I think it's important to realize and respect others' as well. I usually have a very sarcastic sense of humor, but I'm a genuine person and I mean well. I'm fun-loving and am always open to trying new things, going new places, and meeting new people! You never know what's going to come your way :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Only done it once so far, in London, but would DEFINITELY do it again and suggest it to others. The guys I stayed with were extremely nice and accommodating. I ended up having to stay 2 extra nights because my flight was cancelled and they had no problem with it. They took me out and showed me a good time, and were just overall friendly and awesome to hang out with!


There are so many.. dancing, listening to music, reading, singing (loudly and terribly), eating, spending time with friends, traveling, intellectually stimulating conversations, movies.. that's all I can think of off the top of my head!
