About Me


My mission is to teach my children the value of experiences over things.


I am a mother of two teenagers and my husband and I have been married for 22 years. I am a Creative Director and a writer for an ad agency. Our whole family travels together to a new destination each year and when we're home we like to hang out together and do nothing much at all.


Be kind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just joined today after reading an article in the New York Times.


Voracious reader. Adventurous cook. Gardener. Writer. Traveler. I have a wonderful family and friends and love to meet new people and experience new things.

Music, Movies, and Books

Just read the most amazing book I have read in a long time on a trip in the Bahamas. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. It is the story of a Dominican family who emigrates to the U.S. It is wickedly funny and touching and won the Pulitzer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing I have done is helping Barack Obama get elected at a time when no one thought he had a chance. I doorknocked, donated, went to his rallies and even met him in Minneapolis. It was the most amazing night when they announced that he had won the election. Electrifying!
