Cut out all the noise and live well
Based in San Francisco, but frequently scratching the travel itch. Studied abroad in Cape Town, and backpacked India, Nepal, Southeast Asia, with junkets to Europe and across the US. I love exploring other people`s worlds.
I write for work and also for fun.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN 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, writing & storytelling, porch sitting philosophizing, etc.
Music, Movies, and Books
Love a lot of recent British rock (The Cribs, The Coral, Two Door Cinema Club), Americana (Steve Earle, Cream, The Band), electro brain tickle music (Deadmau5, Boyz Noise), and a good pop hook.
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
