About Me


I studied business Finance and Economics, got a job and hated it. . In February of 2012 I packed up my life and moved to South Korea to teach English, which proved to be one of the best decisions I could have made. I spent two amazing years teaching in a small town in central Korea and then took off for what was supposed to be "5 months in SE Asia". I somehow turned that into what's closing in on 4 years in Asia. Between traveling, volunteering and teaching couchsuefing has always been an integral part of my travels. I'm back in Korea, living with my boyfriend and looking to repay some of the generosity I met on the road.


I don't want to look back in 20, 30 or 40 years and talk about the things I wish I had done.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Gracing people with my presence from couches to beds and sometimes floors across the world :)


Surfing has introduced me to some awesome people and provided me with unique, unforgettable travel experiences.


Traveling, Eating, Yoga, Reading, Learning and exploring...pretty much anything outdoors but only if the temperature is above 50 (not a fan of the winter!)

Music, Movies, and Books

Too hard to choose! Although I enjoy a wide range and am always open to new suggestions!

Guilty pleasures: Kdramas and Young Adult books

Sometimes my attention span is to short for movies :/
