About Me




20-something gal living in new york, always with the next big trip in the back of my brain.


Love is showing someone how weird you really are

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfed on numerous continents and only had the best experiences. I'm looking forward to giving back and meeting some awesome people doing so!


I'm born and raised in Brooklyn and I love all the nooks and crannies of this city! Though there are some amazing cities in the states, I haven't found one that beats New York....yet. I love interacting with and meeting new people...especially people who you can't help but smile when you're around.

I work in the education nonprofit world and am passionate about connecting nonprofits with resources that can help them better serve communities, and especially youth. I love working with kids of all abilities!

I'm usually up for all sorts of adventures and I firmly believe that a good frolic in a park is the best medicine, along with tons of laughter and ICE CREAM!
