About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet cool people from all over the world!

ABOUT ME

I liked showing people around my hometown when I worked at a hostel downtown. CS was a natural step from there. Some friends introduced me to it, and I was hooked.

I like outdoor and endurance sports: biking, swimming, hiking, climbing, running.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I went a lot of meetups in NC, and haven't been too active since moving to NY for work. Thinking of getting back into it!

I surf when traveling, and host people passing through town when I can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted some folks; I surfed around england for a bit when I lived there before I found a place; I go to local CS group meetups for potlucks, drinks, or whatever is planned.

Interests

outdoorsy stuff, math & science, cooking, traditional music, gardening, infrastructure, cooperatives, blogs, data mining

Music, Movies & Books

My favorite movies are Network (1976), the LOTR trilogy, Pan's Labyrinth, The Magnificent Seven, 13 Days, and anything James Bond.

For Music, folky stuff like Damien Rice, Ray Lamontagne; 90s rock stuff; Feist, Adele, Fiona Apple

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I'll have to say bioluminescent algae/plankton at the beach. At night, the water shimmers.
