About Me


To make the world seem small.


I am an American studying in Montreal since 2008 and am unintentionally becoming more "Canadian" each day. I am always looking for new things to try and experience. I like traveling, singing (so much that I think my neighbors are annoyed..), playing music, dancing, hiking, learning about absolutely any subject and meeting new people! I am very easy going and friendly.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm willing to host a surfer or to show someone around Montreal!


I've hosted a few times and met some travelers. I hope to be a surfer myself one day!

Music, Movies, and Books

My go-to music is usually mellow acoustic songs, but it can vary greatly depending on the week. I've been listening to a lot of salsa music lately.. I like movies that make me think. I don't read as often as I'd like, but my favorites are historical fiction and sci-fi.
