About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Push myself out of my comfort zone, travel the world, and become happier - more fulfilled

ABOUT ME

SEE MY PICTURES!

Also, I would rather have couch-surfing be focused more on in-person interaction and meeting people rather than talking about yourself here
:-)

PHILOSOPHY

Whoa. I think my head just blew up.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Traveling and sharing, I think?

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

If any hot girls are thinking about becoming a truck-driver, lemme know. Let's make a team. I'm not a truck-driver but I might pursue it.

Interests

w00t

LET'S GO FOR A BIKE RIDE.

I would liKe to hop a freight train someday and live a hobo lifestyle while busking for spare change with a guitar or a bongo drum.

Train on the Brain, a documentary by Canadian Alison Murray was a partial inspiration for this. She also made a movie about Carnies which I haven't seen yet, but I am sure is pretty awesome.

I posted it online for everyone to see.

COMEDY AND LAUGHING is a very big interest of mine-
I WILL JUDGE YOU BY YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR! :-)

...it is a priority of mine to get back into skateboarding. And, in particular, to get a snowboard (I've only rented before) and get into snowboarding again, which I haven't done for years. The same goes for golfing. I haven't golfed in many years, but I played golf regularly as a teenager. GOLF RULES! Michigan has the most golf courses per person of any state... which makes it a very affordable state to golf in.

I gotta try surfing someday. And motorcycling. Not sure which one is more dangerous.
My favorite sport to play is basketball. Running and swimming make me feel good but I pretty much hate non-sport exercise.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

SOUTHERN UTAH NORTHERN ARIZONA

MushroomJesus talking about DMT on youtube.

This is the video I am referring to:

Teach, Learn, Share

I plan to start a media company of sorts. First, I want to have my own PA/sound concert setup - speakers, sound board, all of that stuff - so that I can promote my own shows or get jobs to run sound at concerts. Also, a Sound recording studio. Recording live concerts with good sound/video to make music videos for bands. And I would like to work on independent comedy skits for youtube, shoot independent movies for people - like be contracted out for my equipment and workers, or make an internet TV show.

Businesses and travel businesses. Small startup costs and reselling products with high markup percentage. Restaurants and food carts/trucks.

If anyone has ever started a free local entertainment weekly newspaper-magazine, two examples are Real Detroit Weekly and the Metro Times, I would like to learn about the costs involved or general advice.

I played percussion in middle school and high school. I'm not a musician, but sometimes I think it would be good for me to play.

Also very interested in technology, engineering, farming, computer programming - especially web design/programming.
