About Me

Travel obsessed. Artsy. DJ. Musician. Queer. Writer. I love a night staying in and having a good conversation...also love going out and getting drinks with friends (and still having great conversations).

I live in Pittsburgh + work in international education (I help international students and manage outgoing global programs). Fun stuff. I'm also an immigration advocate + activist and worked as a freelance journalist for a few years.

I love making connections and friendships around the world and discovering cultures + subcultures outside the standard tourist destinations.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Perfect way to meet people while traveling + nice way to meet visitors (looove showing people around my city, Pittsburgh...it's the best).

Even if we can't meet up, you should still send me some good music recommendations from your home country. :)
