I may have quite possibly the biggest dimples you've ever seen. I grew up in a blue van around the US of A to a German-American dad and Korean mum, and came of age in the Southern Hemisphere. I will stare you squarely in the eye and ask for your story. Or finish my beer before you do. Whatever comes first. Let's be friends? (Or let me crash on your couch!)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've counchsurfed unofficially, but what really strikes me about this website is the community. After all - travel is not just about new places, but meeting new people, and understanding new perspectives as well.

Music, Movies, and Books
I read incessantly. Neruda and E.E. Cummings are always in my backpack, and Joseph Campbell's "Power of Myth" changed the way I view the world.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
A couple years ago, I lived with elephants for a month in Cambodia, working for a small NGO that combats both the logging industry and helps login indigenous populations. The non-profit I worked for rehabilitates these animals after years spent in the abusive logging and oil industries. Truly, they are some of the most magnificent creatures on the planet - and the project was both extraordinarily sustainable and empowering for all parties.
Teach, Learn, Share
Always down to do some language exchange!
What I Can Share with Hosts
I've done a lot of helpx and workaway exchanges, so I love to help people in whatever way I can. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. On the (less) practical side, I have graphic/web design/videography/photography experience if needed. Other than that: a smile and a home away from home in New York.
