About Me

Hi! I'm a writer/editor that currently resides in Chicago, but I have roots in NE Ohio and Central Florida.

I'm looking for new experiences, adventure, friends, and anything else that comes my way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm looking to meet people who live in the places I'm visiting, to make friends and connections!

Right now I'm prepping to explore the East Coast of the US with two companions as we document all of the amazing people, places, and local culture between Boston and Key West! Would love to meet anyone along our route and get a taste of life in your neck of the woods :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I have pretty eclectic taste in music (anything from punk to folk to hip hop to classical). I love sharing music reccs and hearing what other people are into as I expand my ever-growing catalog of favs.

When it comes to movies I'm a sucker for a good historic drama (as a former costume designer I can't get enough of those period outfits!), but I'm game for pretty much anything.

I could go on forever about books, but to simplify I'm a big fan of classic lit, nonfiction (essays, criticism, etc.), and weird experimental stuff that blurs the lines between genre.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can make strong drinks and great coffee, edit resumes/cover letters, and tell you the truth about Florida Man
