About Me


Have resources for free housing on trips. Meet new people.


I am a complacent individual condemned to be free and losing myself wherever life takes me.

I love writing, particularly poetry, and reading. I am a fairly independent person, but I always enjoy having a nice conversation with someone over coffee (or actually tea...I don't like coffee), as well as normal activities like playing board games, watching movies, volunteering, etc.

I have a cat named Eddie Mercury.

Existence precedes essence.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted guests with my roommate in our house in Boulder. I am new to couchsurfing.


Watching episodes of Daria.
Drinking champagne (and spilling it on my laptop).
Watching horror movies.
Riding my fixie in the snow.
Writing embarrassing confessional vignettes about my life.
Brewing my own beer.
Putting googly eyes on inanimate objects.
