About Me

I’m a musician and music teacher. I love chatting with friends, writing songs, doing yoga and tai chi, dancing, reading, watching movies and stand-up, exploring cities and nature. I've been with my partner Charlie for 3 1/2 years, and he’s amazing.

I've been studying Spanish this year, and can't wait to get back to Mexico soon. And we went to Japan earlier this year, which I loved. I also love exploring the US and the wonders of California.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to connect with people in the cities I visit. I love getting to know new folks and exploring first hand recommendations. I also love staying in people's homes, and find it much more personal (and affordable) than hotels. Sharing economy!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
