About Me

Geeky single mom and treehugger. I have two teenage sons, and we love to be nerdy together. We do cosplay and head to comic cons, and have many fandoms: Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, etc. We love nature and animals, and care deeply about protecting our planet. I grew up in New England, in Connecticut, and hope to head back there soon. I've been here in Florida since 1995, and share my two bedroom apartment with my boys.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When my lease ended on October 1st, 2017, I became a digital nomad. I plan to spend 16 months (or more) in Europe on a budget. I think it would be great to build my network and meet some new people. in my travels! I don't currently have a home base, but plan to welcome couchsurfers into my home again when I return stateside.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was 26, I moved to Colombia, South America to teach in a bilingual school for a year, with zero knowledge of Spanish.

Teach, Learn, Share

I don't have a spare room for guests, but I do have a small sofabed that's fairly comfy, a lovely second floor balcony to sip coffee on, and a nice guest bathroom with tub and shower. The beaches here are gorgeous, and if I can help you get anywhere locally, my very beat-up truck and I will gladly take you there.
