About Me


To meet new and interesting people from all over the world, show them how great LA is and get ideas/tips/advice for future travels


I'm outgoing, friendly, fun, are most of the people who participate in couch surfing. I work in corporate finance but I'm not a typical number cruncher. Once upon a time I was a radical, progressive activist, working for nonprofits to make the world a better place and I'm still passionate about those things... Now I satisfy that part of myself by writing a food blog about eating sustainably and ecologically. I'm very active in my community and love to try new things. I also love Los Angeles and enjoy showing people why.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've met some amazing people through couch surfing and have had some phenomenal experiences and I want to keep the magic flowing!


I believe the more you do, the more you do. I like to stay very busy! I love going out in LA and checking out new things with my friends. There is always something to do here. I am into endurance races and my training gets me out and about seeing some of the most beautiful parts of SoCal. I'm a life-long-learner so I'm always trying to learn new things and try new things - even if it's a little scary :-)
