About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be a traveller not a tourist.

ABOUT ME

Laughter is why I am here, to laugh and make people laugh is my favorite pass-time.
I come from a large family and being the only girl I can hold my own. A true (northern) Californian through and through with a tendency to be laid back and go with the flow; you can't sweat the small stuff, life is way to short for that!
Recently earned my BA in Art History and Photography, I am always happy to meet other art lovers for a good discussion on the etchings of Albrecht Dürer, Bernini's unparalleled execution of movement and passion, Rothko's portrayal of raw human emotion, or my incessant love for Bansky.
Being a Californian in Italy for the semester I've fallen in love with Italia and Europe in general. I hope to make this place my home for as long as I can.

PHILOSOPHY

Whimsy is important.
Traveling any where alone or with a few good friends. Immersing oneself in the local culture especially through art, food and drink.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am incredibly grateful that there are so many other people in the world who only ask for compassion, kindness, companionship, and laughter over a few beers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

All great. Surfed in Spain, Amsterdam, and UK. Really fantastic people out there.

Interests

Art of any and all kinds. If there is a gallery or Museum within 30 miles I'm going.
Music: I love good music and truly believe that it can enrich your life more than you would expect, though I might be a little bit of a music snob...
I do not believe that being on the radio, American Idol, or auto tune a good musician makes. I love going to live shows and concerts when ever/where ever I can.
