My mission is top secret
I am a pretty regular guy (whatever that means) living in Austin, Texas. I think I'm pretty friendly and always like meeting new people from new places.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I hosted a bunch of couchsurfers when I lived in Scotland, and surfed a lot when I backpacked Europe this past fall. Had great experiences meeting great people both times.
Music, sports, other cultures, my own culture, most things that make me laugh and plenty of things that don't.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music- Mostly rock/blues, but I'm known to listen to rap or classical or some other stuff that can't really be classified from time to time
Movies- The Coen brothers do some good stuff and I like Wes Anderson movies. But then again, I like a good number of movies where I don't have to think.
Books- My favorite author is David Foster Wallace. My (latest) favorite book is Blood Meridian. I'm open to suggestions if there's anything out there I should read.
