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.


May as well be honest.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been surfing couches since I was a baby. Growing up there were always travelers crashing in the living room. Family tradition.


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. Traveling is alright.
