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.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been surfing couches since I was two months old. Growing up there were always travelers crashing in the living room. It's a family tradition.
