About Me


I still send postcards. Often immensely overdue postcards, but postcards nonetheless.


My bookshelves are overflowing. There aren't enough thumbtacks to put all these things on the wall. I'm grateful to wake up to the sunshine, and humbled by morning rain. My little puppy kisses me ever sweetly when the sun rises and we stretch and laugh. I move slow but talk quickly when the time comes. There is a lot to say, but more perhaps to be felt.


love openly, live simply

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed on several occasions and have just started hosting! CS has opened my eyes and my heart to so many good people. Also - I love sharing ideas about vegetarian/vegan cooking!

I receive many requests, and as a result am highly selective. Don't be deterred by my low response rate-If it's right, it's right, and it'll all be allright.


Let's talk about it over a glass of wine, or 4.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I thumbed my way across several countries, and met a girl who gave me her socks, her name sewed into them.

What I Can Share with Hosts

a home cooked, delicious vegan meal and a morning sun session! perhaps it's hard to quantify. I think my favorite thing to share is a new memory. Let's do something we've never done before.
