About Me


Be soulful, heartfelt and passionate every chance I get...


I'm someone who is really open, who has all cards on the table, loves life, can't get enough, wants to expand, wants to grow. I'm into all sorts of philosophies on life, love and the meaning of it all. I'll gladly share a bottle of wine with someone and discuss long into an evening. I'm sort of one of those light-hearted, deep thinking conundrums. I laugh, I cry. It's all there. I love to learn more. I love studying language, there's something about it I get a kick out of. I try to accept and understand what is presented to me at any given time. And I guess that's part of why I want to travel more, so I can expand that perspective even more. Anyway, I've decided to travel. I don't know how long or where exactly I'll be off to. I hope to find out along the way.


Follow your heart, get deep, lighten up, trust yourself, and don't give up.

Also, breathe! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If you can be shaaaamefully MIA, that's what I've been! Sorry for anyone who's tried to get a hold of me! Good news is, I am back in the spirit of travel, friendship, sisterhood, brotherhood, peoplehood and general good time having! Can't wait to get to meet you!

I'd love to meet new people through my travels, which will be quite soon indeed. I suppose for the beginning I'll be doing the surfing. I hope to have a living situation eventually where I can return the favor back to other couchsurfers. I'm not sure how it will all turn out yet, but I will be sure to let you all know when I do.


Haven't been yet, psyched to get started.


People, dancing, thinking outside the box, wine, hiking, cafes, coffee & tea of course, reading (but usually only when I'm in another country for some reason, then I eat books up), languages, big cities, oceans, mountains, eating...oh I love it so, trying new things, hot soup, being myself, meditating, there's really too much to write...we'll just meet and talk about interests together, if you're interested.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies that really show people at their most real moments, I love character driven anything. Give me a story about someone whose personality is tangible and I'm hooked. That goes for everything really.

Specifically Iron and Wine, Brett Dennen, Dave Matthews, Bob Dylan, Wailin' Jennys, Jose Gonzales...gosh, that doesn't even breech the topic. Basically blues/singer songwriter acoustic is my favorite, soul, jazz, rock, folk, bluegrass, indie, and then I get into the ambient sort of new age stuff as well. And of course classic rock...and anything live just automatically is better the way I see it.
