About Me


Traveling Australia. It's time to surf the waves and a couch :)


I'm a preschool teacher at a bank street school in Hoboken, New Jersey. I am originally from Atlanta and have lived in New Jersey for almost 2 years. I love it here but I'm feeling the itch to move and Oregon is it. I have no ties to Oregon but I have always been WEIRDLY drawn to that place. I decided to trip it out to Oregon in March and loved it! I came back to Jersey ready to move! With having my summers off I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get the feel for Portland and see if it truly is where I'm supposed to be.


Life is what you make of it...yes lame, but true.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and I host surfers. I've changed my couch option to "maybe" due to the insane number of no shows I've had. This is the surfing life I guess. If you are in an emergency situation then shoot me a request. If you are just weighing your options please don't e-mail me. Thanks and surf on!!


My summer was spent couch surfing the west coast. It was simply magical and I could not have asked for a better time. The surfers I stayed with were the most beautiful people inside and out!!


I love random road trips to small towns for people watching and hunting for hiddin treasures. I love anything vintage and would love to some day have my own little store. I dig small music venues to catch the local bands while enjoying a couple of beers. I ahve a lot more to say but it's late and I'm tired.
