About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to learn what life is like for other people on the planet; become an internationally important sculptor; climb mountains.

ABOUT ME

I like traveling more than anything, also climbing mountains and anything outdoors and difficult. I like to learn new things. I'm self-employed as an artist. I need a lot of sleep and I don't drink caffeine. Also vegetarian. I love to meet people and share stories. I also like to dance, contact improv and club dancing mostly. I like animals of all kinds and grew up with many pets, though I have been too poor and itinerant thus far as an adult to have any of my own.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am always interested in meeting new people and in providing a place to crash when I have one. I travel a lot and am always trying to build connections. I move often too and find CS is a great way to get oriented when I come to a new city.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
I have had mostly great experiences with Couchsurfers. There are a lot of people on here who are open and interested in sharing. Thanks!
I've met friends when traveling internationally, surfed some couches, hosted some folks, taken visitors on hikes, and found communities with common interests.

Interests

I love the theatre, and my favorite place to see it is in London.
I am also a climber, mountaineer, and general outdoor adventure seeker. I'd love to learn how to ski. I enjoy arts and culture and LOVE to share food.

Music, Movies & Books

Always up to watch DEFA films (from East Germany) if I can get my hands on them.

I'm currently listening to Sieben Jahre in Tibet (7 years in Tibet). Heinrich Harrer is a great writer and had an amazing sense of adventure. I read a lot of climbing/mountaineering literature, like Touching the Void, Kiss or Kill, Climbing Free. Also on my list right now are: Annapurna: a Woman's Place, The Light in High Places (about Wyoming), Annabel. I also like adventure stories of most kinds and kick-ass girls.

I would always be happy to see Balkan Beat Box when they come around. On car rides I'm usually listening to 70s or 80s pop, David Bowie, early 90s indy rock, or sometimes some Bach or Bulgarian Women's Choir.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've Hiked the Annapurna Circuit, the Inca Trail and the Tour du Mont Blanc.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always improving my climbing skills, rope management and glacier mountaineering. Also, traveling in grizzly bear country.
I know a lot about figure sculpture, hiking/backpacking, and how to live well without much money. Also can speak Spanish and German.
I love to cook.
