About Me


collect stories, explore and paint along the way


I like experiences that keep me on the move, whether exploring cities by bike or backpacking in the Rocky mountains. Still, a day spent reading and lounging at a cafe (maybe painting) can be quite wonderful. I've spent a lot of time in Latin America, especially Nicaragua, where I run a scholarship program for Nicaraguan youth. I recently graduated from American University and I'm all over the place these days juggling the people and places I love with work decisions and my plans to travel. Along the way I'm connecting with people and sharing stories, making food/drinking wine, getting lost and finding plenty of crazy adventures.


"A developed country is not a place where the poor have cars, it's where the rich use public transportation." -Mayor of Bogota Yes that's a little specific to capture my entire life philosophy... but I do love me some public transportation...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I surf and host whenever I can. Currently couchsurfing & ridesharing through Europe.


I host at my apartment in DC and I've surfed in San Francisco, Seattle, North Carolina, Dakar, Accra and all over Europe.


Politics, travel, the environment, art/music, languages, people. The great outdoors. Soccer & frisbee!
