About Me

I'm a Philly based artist and animator. I love traveling and not paying for hotels... This community has been a tremendous resource for me and I'd probably be in a ditch somewhere if it wasn't for couchsurfing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf, host and love going to couch surfing events. I prefer total strangers to old friends and it's probably a character flaw but it's a fun one!


Overwhelmingly positive.


I work a lot but truly love what I do. I'm passionate about my own art and paint and draw as much as I possibly can. My latest goal is to be a better dancer and I'm getting there with the help of my Latin friends. I love great food, strong coffee, local wine and odd people. In that order. Oh, and I need to get better at spelling so if you see any typos PLEASE let me know. It's a curse...

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite author is John Waters. My spotify profile is a bit all over the place but you are welcome to check it out:

I don't watch enough movies but I'm working on it. I still don't have a TV... probably never will.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Iguazú Falls. Hiking through La Jolla and accidentally walking onto Black's Beach... Don't do it! Being lost in Vernon. Feeling an earth quake at the Arenal Volcano. Lying in a natural hot spring with a 105 degree river massaging my back.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like talking with people who have a passion for something weather it be travel, art, music, science, etc. I enjoy listening to peoples travel stories and taking notes.

Countries I’ve Visited

Argentina, Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico

Countries I’ve Lived In

United States
