About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discover where home truly is.

ABOUT ME

I just graduated from a big fancy institution of high learning and am in the processes of discovering there is much more out there. I love the simplicity of living out of a backpack for a few weeks and the freedom of picking up and leaving. I am spending a few months of this Spring traveling a bit before I move down south to Tulsa, OK for a new experience (at this point I will be able to host!).
I enjoy meeting new people, and love even more when I get the chance to learn from them. I am always learning (and sometimes teaching in the process) and value the experiences and connections I make with others. Iâ

PHILOSOPHY

I try to steer away from cliches, but it's oh so hard.

I'm going to have to return to this one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am very interested in creating the person to person bonds that form the fabric of this community. Helping othrs explore the Twin Cities and exploring new cities with others! Feel free to drop me a line if you are in the area!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I joined this website previously last year and had some unsavory experiences communicating with potential hosts. But, I know there are great people out there so I am back! I have yet to stay with or meet anyone off the site; but have couchsurfed with friends and contacts from other realms of life.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a huge music fan, always play 89.3 The Current. Love Mumford and Sons, MGMT, Arcade Fire, Morrisey, Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, Cloud Cult, Cold War Kids as of recently.

As for authors I love Vandana Shiva, Paulo Freire, Howard Zinn. Much of the reading in my life is not too pleasurable and more required!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been on a recent binge of doing something everyday that has always scared me. I tink that's been pretty amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

Ironicly, I know alot about critical an liberatory pedagogy! I have a decent basis of sociological and education information.
I can teach you to build and do trick with a hula hoop. And sew. And screen print. And a variety of other crafts.
Please teach m to use my DSLR properly!
