About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To love and laugh while meeting new people.

ABOUT ME

I've recently moved to New York City, and have been busy, busy, busy ever since. Living here requires a lot more work than I had expected, and it's taking me some time to get in the swing of things.

I loooove meeting new people. I can spend hours listening to other people's stories, and trading with my own. I'm currently freelancing, but am looking a job somewhere where I can write. Write about anything. I enjoy writing about music, but I also like human interest stories. I worked at an independent radio station, and I love talking about music and sharing music with other people. I'm pretty sure music is my favorite thing ever.

PHILOSOPHY

I know it's trite, but "carpe diem," is a great way to think about things. Life is only so long, so why not do things that will make you happy?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm in a living situation right now that is not conducive to surfers (unfortunately), but I'd like to offer my friendship to whoever is interested! I also wrote an article about CS for Boulder's local newspaper, the Camera. Check it out here: http://www.dailycamera.com/news/2008/mar/21/the-kindness-of-strangers/

One Amazing Thing I've Done
