we are here to expand ourselves as much as we can. It shouldn't stop with you, it should expand out from you. you use what you learn and experience about the world to identify its injustices and the problems we face, and then do your bit to change it. make others aware, support, and act.

existimos para ampliarnos lo más que podamos. no acaba contigo, debe extender desde ti. utilizas lo que aprendes sobre el mundo para identificar sus injusticias y las cuestiones que hacemos frente, y desde allí, hacer algo para cambiarlo. aumenta la conciencia, apoya, actúa.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


surfin, hostin, and coastin


por el año y medio que viví en una casa cooperativa, fuimos anfitriones por un monton de peregrinos!

hice paseos como surfer en la república dominicana, canadá, y australia. mis experiencas favoritas son las en que nos enseñamos algo, como un idioma o hacer algo nuevo.

during the year and a half that I lived in a co-op house in Urbana, IL, we hosted tons of interesting surfers!

i've surfed in the dominican republic, canada, and australia. my favorite experiences are having the chance to teach one another something, like a language or how to do something new.


cooking and food (i eat everything, but i love vegan/vegetarian cooking!), learning new things, spending time outdoors hiking/camping/biking/rock climbing/kayaking, languages, music, poetry.

Cocinar y comida (yo como todo, pero me fascina la comida vegetariana/vegana!), aprender cosas nuevas, pasar tiempo en el aire libre (trekking/montar en bici/acampar/escalar/kayaking), los idiomas, música, poesía.

Music, Movies & Books

movies/filmes: american beauty, y tu mamá también, butch cassidy and the sundance kid, lost in translation, the third man, roman holiday
music/música: too much/demasiado
poetry/poesia: whitman, neruda, octavio paz, e.e. cummings, frost, eliot
podcasts: this american life, all songs considered, a prairie home companion, the moth, radiolab

One Amazing Thing I've Done

carnaval in cuenca, ecuador. the holiday weekend is celebrated as a national water fight! water balloons, silly string, buckets of water dumped on trucks from second story windows, even gross stuff like flour and avocados. nothing could be more fun!

carnaval: espuma y bombas de agua! dale dale dale! jajaja

Teach, Learn, Share

te puedo enseñar doblar un ave de papel, trenzar el pelo, usar palillos, preparar algo rico con las cosas que tengas! a mi me gustaria aprender algo mas de escalar, resolver el cubo de rubik, y cualquier idioma que pueda.

i can teach you how to fold a paper crane, how to french braid hair, how to eat with chopsticks, how to make something tasty out of literally anything in your cupboard! would love to learn more about rock climbing which i'm dabbling in, how to beat a rubik's cube, and any language i can pick up.

Countries I've Visited
