About Me


To soak up everything I can


I'm brash, loud, sweet as pie, a great cook, intensely opinionated, a voracious reader, a writer, a crafter of all persuasions, a punk forever, an animal lover (My doberman and three cats might as well be children), an obsessive housekeeper and a lovely human being all around.


Live and let live.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am planning to travel to basically everywhere. I'd like to host people from all across the globe and make friends and contacts that I will hopefully be able to meet again when I travel to their home countries.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Crowds who rally together to fight injustice. A specific incident: one of the first weeks of my first semester at my new college, around 40 kids rallying around one of the most offensive man in the world and demanding he get the hell off campus.
