About Me

My spirit animal is definitely an otter. If I were an otter I would bring back so many clams and prawns to the otter village they would hail me as an otter hero. When the seals attacked I would lead my otter brethren in defense of our home. Then I would lie on my back at night eating a clam and wondering if the sky was just a fish's eye.

I keep stubbing my toe. Wisdom slowly permeates. Occasional vegan. Accidental yogi. Hitch hiker. Trail blazer. Spoonerist. Larker. Disney bard. Socratic instigator. All-around-good-time haver.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to rearrange the labels on people's canned goods and inject some healthy absurdity in their lives.


Just plain ol' walking around
Sitting down
Lying in bed when it's raining
Throwing hamburgers up to dogs locked on balconies
Drinking coffee
Shootin' the breeze
The ocean
Body surfing

Music, Movies, and Books

Dvorak: New World Symphony.

If you really want to do your soul a favor, carve out 45 minutes, lie down on the couch, close your eyes, and listen to the whole thing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sit down after a long hike and take off my pack.

Really there's no more delicious feel than resting after exertion.

Teach, Learn, Share

My philosophy:

1) Life is shorter than we can possibly imagine.
2) The sensation of being alive is precious beyond measure.
3) The comfort, convenience, and distraction of the modern world prevent us from realizing 1&2 and focusing on things that matter.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Joie de vivre. Excellent, far-ranging conversation. Forbidden magics.
