About Me


Live life, be happy!


Weird... most of them go with weird. Weird is good right?

I like to read, watch movies, and discuss how society is represented in them. I also like to learn about the land-use in an area and sustainability projects that are either local to a community or in the pipeline for policy in the country. Lastly, whenever I visit someplace I find that learning about the local history, architecture, music, dance, and cuisine are all fun and meaningful fields to explore.


Don't worry or get upset over the little things, work through them and get on with being happy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently I am not overly active in couchsurfing but am able to host in my newly furnished apartment.


Have had some wonderful experiences in America, Ireland, Wales, England, Germany, Sweden, and Norway. It is always great to see the local sites that you wouldn't necessarily see staying in a hostel.


Fantasy and sci-fi books, pretty much any movie, the great outdoors, community farming, contra dancing.
