About Me


Make art and travel!


I'm originally from Chicago, IL and currently live in Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn, NY. I am an artist/photographer and also freelance as an art director in advertising. So, I usually am keeping busy! But love checking out all the artsy/cultural stuff happening in the city.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed couches in Iceland, London, and Philadelphia and have hosted as well. I've also attended a couple events and met a lot of new people through coffee/drinks/sightseeing!


I stayed with two hosts in Reykjavik and Akureyri while in Iceland. CouchSurfing is such a great experience. You get to actually interact with the people who live there and see how they live. I'm so thankful of the things I've seen and experienced because of CouchSurfing.
