About Me


To Share. Meet. Engage. And Show Some Love!


We are a couple of easy-going, creative, and edutainment oriented folks sharing space in downtown SLC.

Our house is located in the West Capitol Hill area of downtown SLC, which is about a 5 minute walk to city center.

We busy ourselves with art, reading, outdoors, work, cooking/rawing, meditation, rocks, plants, spirituality, cycling, swimming, and generally just having a good time!

We are open-minded, eco, easy-going, pan, raucous, creative, cynical yet positive, sarcastic yet genuine, always laughing, body positive, radical queerish, LGBTQ/pan/flexible, body and sex positive, and eager to have as many quality life experiences as we can.


We're all in this together!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We love sharing our space with others. The opportunity to meet new people, share ideas, or just share some warm energy is something we really value. We love the free-ness of CS, and support the idea completely!


I think we've all been professional couch-surfers at one time or another. Having a relaxed and good-energy-infused space to rest and take shelter is so meaningful.


art, food, outdoors, hiking, dogs, camping, culture, meditation, spirituality, philosophy, animals, fitness, healing, Herbology, Plant Medicine, sarcasm, vegetarianism, wanton sensuality, cookies. Indian food, creativity, live music, culture, bad TV, no-pants parties, MarioKart,...

Music, Movies, and Books

Books vary depending on the roomie! Everything from Stephen King to Gore Vidal.
