About Me

Just graduated from NYU and am working on the path to starting my career and the path to finding happiness. This being said, I've been working on pushing myself outside of my own comfort zone and trying new things. One of the most important things to me is creating lasting and meaningful relationships with those around me. Being in a place with good vibes and positive energy means the world to me.

I'm a hopeful TV writer who's goal is to one day own a television network :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

So far, I've picked up and moved to a new city all alone twice. But, there's something missing. Moving and going straight to a hotel is like a self-imposed jail, and limits the amount of people you meet and experience you have- ESPECIALLY when you are new to a place.

I've always been on the more introverted side, but it's time for me to experience something different. All I truly want is good vibes, good conversation, and good food. Something that makes the transition to new places less lonely ( especially when traveling alone) and hopefully will turn into a lasting friendship! I want to hear the story and experiences of others, and contribute to a positive home with my own.


WRITING! I hope to be a screenwriter so usually in my spare time I'm working on a script. I'm currently working on a superhero screenplay right now! Besides that, I'm really into food. Not necessarily cooking (I'm not the greatest cook - but I'm a great baker) , but I love breaking bread with people. I love laughing and sharing stories over great food! Eating is definitely one of my favorite pastimes. Throw in a good bottle of wine ( or two....or three) and I'm set!
