Cut out all the noise and live well
Based in Phnom Penh, with past stints in San Francisco, St. Louis, and Cape Town. Frequently scratching the travel itch.
I write for work and also for fun.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've got a good sense of direction and a strong sixth-travel-sense.
live music of all stripes,old and unvisited museums, running, cycling, and yoga, street food ladies who tell you how to order, porch sitting philosophizing, etc.
- live music
Music, Movies, and Books
My musical tastes are half frozen in 2004: The Strokes (and bands that sounded like them), The Shins, Arctic Monkeys, TV on the Radio, Deerhunter etc. And more recently, Tame Impala, Jamie XX, and plenty more.
Big reader when time allows. Favorites: Juno Diaz, Graham Greene, Bill Bryson, Jonathan Franzen
Movies: like some good post apocalyptic sci fi (matrix, looper, and those kinds of things), alien movies before they show the alien (Signs), and plenty of comedies
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Waking up at 3 AM to walk to Annapurna Base Camp under a full moon.
