About Me

I enjoy a good book, singing at the top of my lungs when I think no one is home, sculpture, painting, judo, and traveling when I can. I am eager to learn new things and share stories, food and music with people.

I've done some Couchsurfing in India, Brasil and the U.S. and hosted folks quite a bit in the past. My partner and I will be traveling in 2017 -- looking forward to couch crashing, meeting new folks (especially artists) this next year.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Transnational connections. Art & social justice connections. Meeting good people.

Interests

I like playing scrabble. I like learning new languages. I also like taping my roommate's shoes to the ceiling and watching him search for them all day in his room. Sass, humor. I also enjoy traveling.
