About Me

CURRENT MISSION

After Yielding to Africa, Pair of Lovers Seek Mild (or Wild) Stop-Over in Paris

ABOUT ME

Me. David. Hello. I'm writing to say I love cinema, high art (Louvre), low art (local lofts in Chicago), underground Berlin, Wes Anderson, Radiohead, Dancing, vegetables. Oh, and Daft Punk, M83 and Air, definitely.

And my girlfriend, who upon doing a 5-day stop over in Paris, July 23-28, would love a place to stay, and perhaps even WORK on a project (art, community), web site, or just see some French films and obscure graffiti.

See examples from recent travels here; we're currently volunteering in microcredit:

PHILOSOPHY

French is king, if only I could learn it as well as my partner-in-crime, Megan.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Through active participation. (Trick question?)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None on this website, honestly. Really just inquiring about PARIS in JULY. Am offering spots in Chicago for the Fall. Heard positive experiences from Dublin friends, and thought, "Why not." Otherwise, TONS of experience - with many friends of my female roommate's friends.
