Join Couchsurfing to see Brent’s full profile. It’s free!
Hi, I'm Brent. I was born and raised in the Midwest. I'm half Dutch and half Finnish. I have not seen nearly enough of this world or this country. I decided to change that a couple months ago and move across the country to San Diego. I'm taking a big leap and hoping my parachute opens on the way down. I plan to travel to every continent in my lifetime, except Antarctica I hate being cold!
I'm not shy, but I am somewhat reserved. I enjoy listening to people and learning new things. I only have a few acquaintances in San Diego and hope to meet some interesting friends. Since I'm new to this site and don't have any references, here is my facebook: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1167420195
"You see things, and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were, and I say, 'Why not?'" - George Bernard Shaw
Give more than you take. As long as your actions aren't hurting anyone or anything it's all good.
I strive to think that much of what I know is wrong. How can you learn if you already think you know it all?
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I heard about this website this summer and really want to try my hand at it. I'm currently looking to couch surf and definitely want to be a host once I have my own place.
SCIENCE, economics, philosophy, live music, running, tennis, medicine, entrepreneurship, art museums (I am a terrible artist and admire people who can create things that affect people so differently).
- live music
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: Modest Mouse, Kenna, Ray Lamontagne, Xavier Rudd, Remy Zero, Dom Kennedy.
Movies: My favorite is Kill Bill. I also love a good documentary and horror movies (even the cheesy ones)!
Books: The last couple years I've gotten into non-fiction. I recently read "Nothing to Envy" and "The Worldly Philosophers", both are excellent reads.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I had the privilege of shadowing a forensic pathologist for a few weeks and got to observe several autopsies. It was a very eye opening and humbling experience.
