About Me

I somehow figured out how to land a job that pays me to travel the world, so I don't have a permanent address these days. I've hopped between Europe, Africa, Asia and South America throughout the last year, and I'm ready to start the cycle back in Europe this summer!

I'm addicted to pizza and would prefer to spend my days making Spotify playlists. Put my on the back of a scooter and get me to a beach—I'll be a happy girl. Probably would need a super cold cocktail to add in to that equation, too...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

True travel means meeting locals and seeing a city or country through their eyes.


Concerts, shows, DJ sets, impromptu jam sessions, music festivals, dancing, cooking for friends/family/strangers, hiking, exploring, trying new beers, and laughing

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't discriminate against any form of music, but there are definitely some genres that I enjoy more than others! Indie rock, alternative, electronic are some of my favorites. I love Mumford & Sons, Odesza, Lord Huron, Kygo, Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and lots and lots of others!

I accept any and all book suggestions--I love to read, but I don't always have the time to read for pleasure. I've read the Harry Potters series a few times, but one of my all-time faves is The Poisonwood Bible. I also read non-fiction history books after teaching US History for a few years.

And, I can't possibly begin to list all of my favorite movies, but a few of the top ones include Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Cruel Intentions, Searching for Sugarman and Edward Scissorhands.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was flying in an airplane on the night of the July 4th and witnessed fireworks from above the clouds. It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. All the shows I've seen at Red Rocks in Colorado have blown my mind - listening to live music with mountains as a backdrop is unforgettable.
