About Me


to learn by direct experience and exposure


I grew up in the Bay Area near San Francisco, moved to New Orleans, Louisiana for college, and promptly moved back to the Bay Area. I've been living in San Francisco for 7 years and have loved it every moment.

I hold friendships forever -- I have friends I've known for 10+ years that I see on a regular basis. I have two friends that I've known for 33 years (do the math). You have to do something really awful and unredeemable to lose my friendship. Family is such a valuable resource; I'm lucky to still live near my parents even though I don't see them very often.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far, meeting people at local CS events. Plan to do some surfing this summer.


I have yet to couch-surf or host anyone, but I have been to some local CS events: SF Underground.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love funk music, singer-songwriters, and old-school hip hop; but I really listen to just about anything -- you never know what will come up on my shuffle mix next. Lately, I've been listening to Kenna, Florence & the Machine, The Black Keys, Mary J Blige, Talib Kweli, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Etta James, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, and a lot more. my Italian professor just introduced us to Nek.

Fave books and movies are much harder because I see so many movies a year (usually around 80-100) and try to read a new book every month. I don't like to repeat either so I don't have old standards. I am not one of those women who wants to re-read Jane Eyre every year, though I do enjoy a good Bronte story. My favorite book read in the last few years is The Path of Minor Planets by Andrew Sean Greer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

During my last year of college, I was able to be a rider on a Mardi Gras float in New Orleans and attend their masked ball. Four hours on the float went by in a flash.
