About Me


to live life to the fullest...


let's see...i'm a californian living in paris (was five years in amsterdam before). love to travel, i'm working my way up to 100 countries (47 so far). love meeting other open-minded, travel-happy, down-to-earth people...i try to enjoy every moment, stay positive, laugh and have a good time (although mostly before midnight). i'm basically vegetarian and am a sometimes green-freak (as some might say :-). i love the outdoors and nature. also love animals and yoga.


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


in my travels, some of the best times have been when I was staying with locals and I've been able to open my home as well. I think it's important for people to re-connect with each other, especially in a world where we spent more time behind the computer than in conversation. Life is in the good times we have and the memories we make, not the stuff we have or the job we do. So I try to spread a little cheer in the world by helping others.
