ABOUT ME

Here's a video of my trip from Denmark to Russia, summer of 2010: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gS6iUwpG5fo

That's mostly it...

PHILOSOPHY

"There's a set of rules that anything that was in the world when you were born is normal and natural. Anything invented between when you were 15 and 35 is new and revolutionary and exciting, and you'll probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you're 35 is against the natural order of things." --Douglas Adams

"...centuries from now our great-great-great-grandchildren will look back at us with amazement at how we could allow such a precious achievement of human culture as the telling of a story to be shattered into smithereens by commercials, the same amazement we feel today when we look at our ancestors for whom slavery, capital punishment, burning of witches, and the inquisition were acceptable everyday events." -- Werner Herzog

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've stayed with a bunch of people across Scandinavia, Russia, and Morocco, etc. I've also hosted about a dozen great people while living in Morocco, and a few in Cairo. Now I'm back in the US, but still traveling the globe whenever possible.

Interests

Libraries and literature, food, beer, photography, other peoples' stories, living simply and cheaply, being as free as possible until the moment I die
