About Me


To meet as many fun-loving, adventurous people as I can and learn what they have to teach me. To become more tolerant and understand the world a bit better.


I love meeting new people. I am fun-loving, spontaneous, and enjoy nothing more than traveling somewhere I have never been before on a moment's notice. I love sports and the outdoors. I am easy-going and do not need many materialistic things to make me happy. I grew up in Massachusetts, went to university in Montreal and Vancouver, and am now enjoying a more care-free existence. There are just so many places and so little time!


It is not about where you are trying to go in life, but the road you take getting there.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am looking to meet interesting people who have something unique to offer. I am interested in couch surfing and offering my couch when not traveling.


My interests include sports, the outdoors, reading, and learning new languages (anything cultural, really). I spend a lot of time rock climbing. When not climbing I enjoy skiing, gymnastics, and running. Any cultural experiences, festivals, etc. are amazing.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like almost anything, but currently tend to be most interested in folk, old school hip hop, and cumbia. I read a wide variety of genres, but am currently going through a psychology/self-help phase. I like when people share with me their particular interests, especially in music and cuisine.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hitchhiked 1400 km from Bariloche to El Chalten, Argentina in 2 and 1/2 days!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach skiing, rock climbing, or English. I studied geology so I can explain basic geological processes. I am currently trying to learn French and enjoy sharing different cuisines/recipes and stories.
