About Me


live. love. laugh and try not to wet my pants.


While not traveling I tend to spend enormous amounts of time thinking about travel. I highly value self-sufficiency, thrift store shopping, remaining calm in a crisis, over analyzing, laughing and making others laugh, eating cheese, speaking what's on my mind, being there for loved ones, making the best out of a shitty situation and lots of other stuff that shan't fit in this tiny box.


Delicately play the balancing act of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


living and learning


I have hosted many wonderful surfers while living in Santa Cruz. I love the meetups. There is no shortage of fabulously unique experiences with CS. Surfed in Guadalajara and D.F. with some awesome hosts-gracias Mexico! I just relocated back to Oakland, CA and am looking forward to connecting with the community here and hit the road for traveling as much as possible.
