About Me


Look for the rainbow connection


**Moving to Washington, D.C. mid-May**

My main goal when travelling is figuring out how to say , "May I have a coffee?" in the local language. Usually then necessitates learning how to say, "Where's the bathroom?" I can get by on those phrases plus "Please" & "Thank You" for months.


Someone once told me that they liked that I hummed & whistled cause it meant I had a happy soul, I like to think that's true because I don't see any point in being unhappy when you could make yourself and especially, others happy!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm an ENFJ HEP who's clearly a fan of acronyms, and likes to meet people, share a city, a meal, a story or just some time.


I like hearing life stories OR in their absence, create life stories for passersby;
You really can't make me stop dancing;
I bribe people to befriend me with baked goods & awesome meals;
I channel my inner 'Fern Gully' by being outside (hiking, kayaking, etc.)
Occasionally my emotions can only be expressed through a deep and meaningful photograph of a door or a dark, monochromatic painting

Music, Movies, and Books

Love most, esp. anything you can laugh at or something that makes you think

Books: i'll read just about anything someone recommends me, i wish i could say i have favorites...but i can never pick.

Music: i rarely say no to an opportunity to listen to live music and i don't live many moments in my life without listening to or making music

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Month long adventure in a bus through Brazil with 50 exchange students from all over the world...priceless!
