About Me


*I am currently traveling in Australia, New Zealand, Bali, Japan!

Meditate, simplify, be with the present moment


I am from Chicago, lived in Albuquerque, traveled for almost 2 years, moved to Denver, and now I'm heading back to traveling!

I love food, acting silly, and learning about people and different cultures.

I always seek the good in people. I believe everyone has something about them that can inspire and that I can learn from.


Laugh hard, laugh often, and surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Other experiences are important, but sharing a laugh with someone (or yourself) is the best!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted and surfed a bit, and been to a couple pillow fights and crashes....


I have met so many interesting people through CS. I love hosting, and seeing a city with travelers. I am amazed at people's wide range of experiences and ideas. Its nice to meet open people who are eager to share their culture, way of living, insight, etc, and that has been such a gift to my life.


I am always learning and enjoy most things...such as cooking and eating, games, hiking, nature, languages, music, playing soccer and other sports, creating, dancing, spirituality, Tibbetan Buddhism.

I feel more comfortable one on one or in small groups...seem to get further into the nitty gritty

Music, Movies, and Books

Lately I have an Afrobeats mix on repeat. I loooove being introduced to new music :)
(and books and movies, too)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done


Teach, Learn, Share

I used to teach Zumba and have taken a lot of dance classes. I can definitely share some moves

I would love to learn more about plants, permaculture, natural remedies

What I Can Share with Hosts

I enjoy connecting with hosts, and I can also be independent. I'm respectful and clean.
