About Me


Enjoy life, have adventures, and leave this place better than I found it.


I laugh a makes life happier. My (now not so secret) dream job is to be one of those people who reads books on tape. Helping companies reduce their environmental footprint is pretty good too. I'm always up for anything - life should be an adventure!


Appreciate what you have. Don't take yourself too seriously.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed a couple of times and hosted quite a bit when I lived in Salem. I also got to know some local hosts in Salem and just love the whole community! I also met my current roommate through the local Boston group :)


I've never had a bad one! Everyone is so nice and interesting and it's a great way to get to know people you might otherwise never meet!


Adventures! Hiking, canoeing, biking, watercolors, cooking, brewing beer, playing with large dogs, dancing, climbing, shopping at thrift/antique stores

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Saw a 9-year old in Detroit reach for a bag of chips, read the ingredients and put it back after a week of cooking/gardening camp!

Also, having a spectacular dance-off with my three American (girl) friends versus 4 Belgian boys on a farm in the Czech countryside with our English hosts as judges! Holy moly!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll share my cooking skills with you! I'll teach you the steps for decorating the interior of a room! I'd really like to learn how to play piano without the sheet music...or bass guitar. Also, I can go on and on about common "green myths" if you get me started.
