About Me


Community-making, synergy-seeking


I live in Berkeley California. I love it here and feel very much at home in the bay. That being said, I'm an explorer/wanderer by nature and never seem to stop finding new places to visit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had my first couch surfing experiences in Washington and Oregon and would definitely do it again. I seem to be at my best while traveling and meeting new people.


Life experience, healthy yummy food, expansive-minded people, yoga, mindfulness, building community, sushi, a good burger, dance of any kind.

My favorite actress is Meryl Streep. Favorite actor: maybe Russell Brand, but not for his acting, just for being himself.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think living and working as an English teacher in Madrid. It was very challenging (but also very fun) as I had little teaching experience and came with only one contact: my boss. I had to learn pretty much everything by myself as I didn't come with a program. Yeah, it really taught me how to get out of my shell to make things happen.

Teach, Learn, Share

I practice a form of therapy called MindLife coaching. It's a tool wherein you gain feedback from the subconscious mind via the neuromuscular system. The goal of the technique is to gain awareness and transform subconscious agendas and negative life patterns. I'd love talk more about it and share it with you!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Laughter, good shoulder rubs, tea--I'm a decent cook too 😊
