About Me


Running towards the sunset.


I enjoy biking for hours with friends, exploring abandoned buildings, dancing with reckless abandon, and collaborative works of art.
I'm never happier than when I'm around a campfire with friends, drinking a beer and singing while someone strums on the guitar.

Strong GLBT ally. Supporter of Immigrant Rights. Defender of Environmentalism. Unabashed Radical babe.

I'm a Calvin in search of my Hobbes.


I can't think of anything clever enough just yet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


With a fuckton of high fives and hugs.


One (of many) pretty great experiences:
Him: My frame is broken
Me:Don't worry. I have power tools. And a leatherman
Him:That's hot.
Me: ....
Him: Want to make out?
Me: Yup.


Enjoying a pint on a rooftop all night until the sun rises, making stencils, BIKES, hitching, camping, painting, listening to other peoples' adventures (and having my own) sharing silence, cooking food with/for others.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2010 I met up with an all-girl motorcycle gang in Taitung, Taiwan, and we cruised the countryside for a week. Black sand beaches, Majong, and Xiaomijiu (and maybe a little Bing lan for its teeth-whitening affects). Amazing gals, even better times.
