About Me


Live life with zest and gusto and inspire others to do the same :)


I was born in the Philippines and grew up on the east coast mainly in New Jersey and Florida. Tho, I am and will always be a Florida girl at heart :) Most people describe me as very energetic, outgoing, and spontaneous free spirit. I can be quite the party animal that likes to be tamed. I love to dance. Did I mention I love to dance? I love to meet people, enjoy traveling a lot especially solo and try new things and learn about people and explore new places and new culture. I'm an ER nurse. I love to cook and when I'm not in the kitchen, I love to kayak, hike, paddle, and currently learning how to surf! I'm always down to do activities in the island. I also ballroom dance. I dance Argentine tango and salsa a few times a week! I love to go boating and currently live on a 40ft yacht with my boyfriend.


I believe in the power of positive thinking.

I also strongly believe in merits of diversity and open mind. I like meeting and learning from others whose lives are different from mine as it truly opens your mind to the world around you and everyone’s unique differences no matter where they are from.

Twenty years from now, you'll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover -- Mark Twain

"To learn all that you can about the world and life, and then to share your skills and knowledge with others"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I learned about CS through many mutual traveling friends. A friend from college once surfed and traveled to over 74 countries and he initially introduced me to couchsurfing a few years ago. That's how it all began...


I love to meet travelers. I have met and made some great friends along the way. I've hosted as well as surfed and had also been active attending CS meetings in other cities while traveling and have also organized and shared many many CS events in Hawaii.

Teach, Learn, Share

TEACH: I dance hiphop, jazz, ballet, bellydancing and Latin. But my favorite style of dance of all is Latin/ballroom (Salsa, Cha Cha, Swing, Rumba, Hustle, Merengue, Bachata, Waltz, Fox Trot, Tango). I used to perform back in the days. Currently, I enjoy social dancing the most. I dance Argentine tango and salsa a few times a week. Also, I dance hula. I can teach you some moves OR can take you to the dance studio where I go to dance salsa and/or Argentine tango!

LEARN: I would like to learn and practice French.

SHARE: I organize and share some local events.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can help you learn English and can teach salsa dancing! I love to have conversations about cultures, religion, hobbies and outlooks on life.
