About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Running towards the sunset.

ABOUT ME

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 LGBTQIA+ Ally. Supporter of Immigrant Rights. Defender of Environmentalism. Unabashed Radical babe. Love to Hitchhike.

I'm a Calvin in search of my Hobbes.

PHILOSOPHY

It's your body to do what you want with. Just don't spend life hating others when they're trying to live theirs.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

With a fuckton of high fives and hugs.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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.

Interests

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.
