About Me


to explore new places, meet great people, dig my feet into as much good soil as possible and sleep under trees... and not get too wet along the way. to patch my boots, too


27 years old from Maine (in the States), which is way high up on the Northeast side of the country, underneath Canada. have been traveling and volunteering since October 2006, lived in Peru and Argentina for a while, teaching English, working with kids and doing organic farmwork. returned to the States a few months ago and am now teaching Spanish in an elementary school in the Boston area and doing my best to stay in one place for a while, even though i'm really dreaming of taking off for faraway places!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


have crashed on many friends´ couches and have had friends stay with me when i´ve had my own place. i've met many wonderful friends through CS and loved hosting CSers when i settled down in cusco.


climbing trees, playing with dogs, knitting hats, hiking in the mountains, cooking delicious food while drinking cheap wine, making jewelry, good fruit, long bike rides, weeding
