About Me


To continuously let the world surprise and inspire me with its people and natural wonders!


I consider myself to be an easy-going, open-minded, creative and curious person who is always up for exploration and adventure. I may be shy at times, but I am an excellent listener and I love good conversation over coffee or sangria. When I'm not at work, you can find me boxing at the gym, scoping out art museums, experimenting with new recipes, or chilling with my hilarious friends. I love to laugh, learn, and play outdoors. Right now I'm about to embark on my great South American adventure and couldn't be more excited!


Soak it all up while you can!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


This will be minha primera vez! (and I've been practicing my Portuguese!)


Science, art, traveling, live music, discovering new things, finding the delicate balance of being healthy and hedonistic (love me some cake and a good party), boxing, camping, the perfect plate of enchiladas, watching really ominous clouds roll in... Basically, the simple things make me happy!

Music, Movies, and Books

I LOVE music and probably play it way too loud in the car. My playlist is mostly rock and roll, namely Radiohead, Beck, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, the Shins, Led Zeppelin, and smattering of about a million other bands. There's plenty of Irish and American folk music as well as Classical thrown in the mix too.
Some fave books include: Water for Elephants, 1984, Middlesex, Memoirs of a Geisha, the Grapes of Wrath, the Alchemist, and the Little Prince
Movies: Alice in Wonderland, Love Actually, Forrest Gump, and movies that are so awesomely bad they're good
