About Me


see as much of the world as possible in the next 6 months!


I'm laid back, up for anything, and I love to have fun. Usually when I travel I make very few plans and just hope to find some people to hang out with and explore the city! I want to see the cities I visit from the perspectives of people who live there, not from the normal "tourist" point of view.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


just surfing for now--I don't have the space to host, unfortunately!


I have gone to two CS events and met some really great people! I have surfed twice and met with someone once for a home-cooked meal. CS is a really great way to meet people who live in the city, share experiences locally and from abroad, and get recommendations for things to do.


I am a student, so I spend a lot of time learning. I am currently studying in Budapest and hope to travel a LOT (but not spend too much money!). I like to listen to (live and recorded) music and watch movies. I also love to crochet.

Music, Movies & Books

movies: The Fall, American Psycho, Harold and Maude, anything by Wes Anderson or the Coen Brothers music: long-term favorites: Gogol Bordello, Amanda Palmer/Dresden Dolls, Bright Eyes, The Animals. books: Ender's Game (and the rest of the series), Atlas Shrugged (but objectivism is silly), The Handmaid's Tale, mostly anything by Harlan Ellison,... I'm a sci-fi fan.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

In high school, I went to Ecuador and backpacked the inca trail. It was a really beautiful trip.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach: crocheting! growth/maintenance of dreadlocks!

I want to learn the basics of other languages and how to cook (I'm bad at it...).
