Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Alexander’s full profile.
I’m a down-to-earth guy who’s trying to leave the world a better place. I like to enjoy the outdoors in any way I can, and I love learning new things...whether I’m reading, watching a documentary, going to a museum, or exploring someplace new. (That could be on another continent or just down the street.)
Hobbies have included: growing shiitake mushrooms on logs (not special mushrooms!), crocheting, and producing biodiesel. Currently, I’m getting into carpentry (in helping my friend build a Tiny House) and kintsugi repair.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Since I have abandoned car ownership in favor of the smile machine (bicycle) traveling long distances without mass transit requires a bike tour. And bike tours require a place to sleep in between riding days!
At the moment, (Summer 2021) my girlfriend and I are doing a cross-country train trip and we'd love to meet the locals!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Co-founded a Transition Town Initiative in my hometown of Framingham, MA. That's been a pretty wild ride.
Teach, Learn, Share
I tend to take apart broken things and put them back together unbroken. Maybe I can fix something for you or show you how!
Been working my way through the alphabet: Appliances, Bicycles, Clothes, Doors, Electronics, Furniture, Garages, etc
What I Can Share with Hosts
I know a lot about some things (ecology, sustainable technologies) and some about many things.
