About Me

The pandemic was a catalyst for me to quit my job and go back to school. I'm currently working on my Bachelor's at Rutgers, double-majoring in Women & Gender Studies and German.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm participating in a study abroad this summer (2022) in Berlin and plan to do a little traveling before the program starts in early June.


I worked in the beer industry for many years, primarily in brewery front-of-house operations or at beer bars in management and product procurement. I love philosophy and learning about the world through a radical transnational feminist lens. I enjoy doing, whether it's artsy projects or any kind of indoor or outdoor game/sport. And I absolutely love animals; I'm pretty much fully vegetarian, working on transitioning to being vegan...

What I Can Share with Hosts

I try my best to be as considerate and non-intrusive as a guest. I would add quiet, although that doesn't mean that I don't love to socialize and meet new people, as I love new connections and experiences.
