About Me

I'm one of those outgoing introverts. I enjoy meeting new people and pushing the limits of my comfort zone. I also like reading and sleeping :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've couchsurfed in Mexico City and Reno before I moved here. I hope to do it again soon! I've hosted people in New York, DC, and Reno. Traveling and meeting new people is my biggest addiction. And I've made so many great friends through CouchSurfing. I think it's one of the best way to come in contact with people from different cultures and backgrounds.

I hope you are on CS for similar reasons and that we can learn from each other! Please do not send me a couch request if you are only looking for a free place to stay and have no interest in a social/cultural exchange.


In addition, I also like laughing, talking, thinking, hearing and telling stories, eating, and stretching.

I was a classroom teacher for 4 years and am still working as an educator, so I think about education a lot.
