About Me


loving new york, looking for fun road trip adventures


I spend a lot of time writing ... I love being in grad school for poetry writing, and I love New York. This summer is pretty wonderful so far; I've really liked going to museum and drinking wine outside and going to a ton of readings and just getting lost in Florence.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My couch will be open when I return to New York : )


I took off a semester from school to travel cross country when I was 18/19 ... Portland was fun because of how many people lent their couches to me. And living in Brooklyn, people always need a place to crash.
