About Me


Navigating for the best of all possible worlds


teacher, musician, linguist, dreamer, ambassador of New Orleans


I am part-Taoist, part-Buddhist, part-rationalist, all humanist, and I personally believe that the purpose of existence is to fulfill our natural potentials, which I wish to do by exploring, discovering, growing, and creating, and teaching.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new here but I intend to both host and surf and to have events and meet other travelers.


Since I have not surfed yet, I will list here that I have traveled in Russia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Nepal, India, China, Kazakhstan, Guatemala, United States, Canada, and most of Northern Europe, especially Sweden and Denmark. And I have lived all over the U.S. and in Xiamen, China.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking the Annapurna circuit and looking down on the Himalayas from Thorung-La pass.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach writing, literature, anthropology, philosophy, linguistic science, taijiquan, qi gong, and maybe some other things.

I want to learn more Chinese, other languages, physics, and other natural sciences, other mind-body arts, and magick.
