I'm a professional figure skater and coach based in New York City. During the Winter season, I skate with the Ice Theatre of New York and coach at Central Park's Wollman Rink. During the warmer months, I freelance as a costume designer, seamstress, roller skating/blading coach, babysitter, and travel as much as I can. I graduated from college with an education degree and taught high school English and College Counseling for a few years before leaving to pursue more artistic endeavors.
A native New Yorker, the only other city where I can see myself settling down is New Orleans. The spicy food, the soothing music, the sunny weather, and the smiling faces are all somewhat contrary to the Yankee way of life... But laissez les bon temps rouler!
I'm a clean and respectful houseguest and a creative, fun, and flexible person! Someday I hope to have a home where I can re-pay the favor and host other travelers. I've heard the most amazing stories of hosts who have met incredible people who came to stay on their various journeys!
