About Me

I was born and raised in North New Jersey just outside of New York City. A third generation American with my background being Italian/German, but being in this part of the country I was most in touch with my Italian culture.

After High School I moved to Manhattan to start college at an Acting Conservatory called American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA.) After studying in New York I switched to the Hollywood campus in LA and moved to California. Now Los Angeles is where I stay and surely is a second home to me. I love being in the Entertainment Capital, eating the great mexican food and chillin in the sunny Cali weather!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people and making friends from all over the world. Whether it's getting a free place to stay while traveling abroad or returning the favor as a host in LA! Either way experiencing the different stories, cultures, languages, food, etc. All while sharing that authentic local flavor has caused me to fall in love with Couch Surfing! We are all citizens of the world.
