About Me


To live life to the Fullest!


My interests and talents are broad. I took a keen interest in travelling after my first trip abroad when I was 18 (backpacked across S.E.A. by myself for a couple months). Since then, I have traveled around the world and taught English in S. Korea and Saudi Arabia. I am now back in LA (where I attended college) and starting the next exciting chapter in my life.


Hummmm... I will think about this one and get back to you

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I started my couchsurfing journey by surfing couches around the world and when I have been situated, I have been able to host. I enjoy both!


I have been surfing through parts of Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the good 'ol USA. I have participated in CS events in France, Turkey and Chicago! I have hosted in Chicago and S. Korea.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all types of music--it depends on the place and time.
Movies- I am a movie critic. It is rare I really like a movie. A strange favorite that comes to mind: Death Becomes Her
Books- I liked the Alchemist but the one I am writing is going to be my new fav!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Capadoccia/ Goreme in Turkey is one of the coolest places I have ever layed my eyes on!
Travelling through Peru and Pantigonia in S.A. are also Amazing!
