About Me


To see, to do, to go, to be, and to do so with an open heart!


* I have had a couple of mismatches due to people not reading my neutral refs and couch info objectively concerning availability, the state of the apartment and the time available to spend with surfers. This resulted in more neutral refs, please read the couch info!

Regarding neutral refs: They are all basicly nice guy, messy house or missed connections. One is nice guy, messy house, host (me) was sick to stomach all night.

Regarding my house: It is not as bad as the worst ones, and the ones concerning the back room are irrelvent as I don't host there anymore. The place can be pretty messy and a bit disorganized at times but nothing awful... Basicly don't stay with me if your a person who is overly concerned with dust and disorganization and all will go awesomely!


I'm a very warm and honest person. When you are on my couch, you are family, and will be treated as such!

Walking around with my head in the clouds is serendipitous, As are random rain clouds and the occupational atmospheric electrocution :)

with a mind full of theorys, that the proving of them would do little more than entertain, Some ideas that may help someone, somewhere, at some point In their life, I wander, Looking to be suprised by strikingly relevent and unexpected preconceived randomness!
Things of personal interest:

-Art and theatre and all that comes with it.

-People and their perspectives and idea's

-Hugs and laughter!

-Things that smack you in the face and leave your ears ringing in wonder.

-Sleeping and dreaming!

-Kittys and other forms of fuzzy awesomeness, and the word awesome in general.

-Snorting when laughing, and unexpected extremely enthusiastic tangents.


be good to those you care for.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Wanting to host, get to know and understand people. New York has a good solid base of surfers and surfing related events that need people to participate in them, this is where my couch comes in. I also try to stay as active as possible on the last minute couch board!


With art as well as life, it is a work in progress. Couchsurfing has helped me form great connections with amazing people, and helped me feel more at home on this planet, as a person and an artist!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbing a mountain in Las Cruces and seeing the on rain form 50 miles away, Watching the fog roll down over the bay from the twin peaks, and too many shows to list!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach basic guitar technique, rough carpentry and rough stiching and sewing
I know ironwork form a hands on perspective, including welding. I rode bmx for a long time and can teach you how to fix most things on a bike, that don't include gears and fluid breaks.
