About Me


to learn as many new recipes from different cultures as possible


I love to travel and meet people from foreign cultures. A favorite activity of mine is to be outdoors, whether it be biking, hiking, walking or backpacking. I am also very interested in special education and have considered studying occupational therapy. I also love to cook healthy food, knit, and am a person who always smiles. I have a good sense of humor and love to make people laugh.


Smile. Laugh. Surround yourself with positive energy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I share about my own culture and travels and participate in local meet-ups.


Really positive. I have gotten to know so many cool people through CouchSurfing and have gotten to do so many cool things. Hiking and camping throughout Austria, joining a sustainability group, biking with other Couchsurfers in Critical Mass, organizing a Laughter Yoga workshop, and traveling to so many cool areas are only a few reasons why CouchSurfing rocks. I love that you learn from locals and get to go beyond being merely a tourist. I am impressed by the open-mindedness that CouchSurfers have and how much you can learn from other people.

Riding my bike naked in Critical Mass in Vienna. Running the Frauenlauf in Vienna. Running a Laughter Yoga workshop. Giving up public transportation and Vienna and only biking everywhere. Giving away free hugs at the Gay Pride Parade in Vienna.
