About Me


Understand QED.


I am a reader, dancer, writer, thinker, star-gazer, drinker, strutter.


My personal philosophy. heh. I looked out the window at three roses. No rose looked at the other rose and wondered if she was as beautiful as the rose next to her. or as young. or as fragant. The rose knew that she was created exactly as she was, and she fulfilled her purpose in every moment, as a seed, a bud, a blossom, and leaves on the wind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate right now only by being a part of Couch surfing. I am living with my parents for the summer before moving to Boston for school so I can't host right now. If East Lansing ever got CSers I would love to do coffee slash drinks.


Wanderlust tendencies. Many a couch have met my cheeks.


Emerson. Existentialism in general. Lao Tzu. Celestial-body-gazing and satellite-spotting. Writing. Romanticism. The behavior of light. Whiskey. Breathing. Dancing. Hiking Hiking Hiking. Silence. Uuuuuuh

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went for a bike ride today and the sun came out from behinds the clouds just as a passed in front of the Gazometri in Testaccio, a neighborhood in Rome. A few moments later I was gifted a bell.
