Join Couchsurfing to see Chrissy’s full profile. It’s free!
My name is Chrissy (or Chaos). I'm a performer from Portland, Oregon (burlesque, emcee, fire spinner, show producer etc). I also love painting and drawing when I can.
It's been an interesting life... I've lived in mn, ia, co, Ri, Alaska, Laos, New Zealand and on/off been in Portland for the last five years.
A few months ago I moved to Vieques, Puerto Rico where I work part time at a restaurant, live the simple island life and adventure as much as i can.
I love traveling, meeting new people... I'm extremely friendly. I enjoy dive bars, diners, ghost towns, road side attractions, hiking, kayaking/boating, seeing the oddities, edge, secret parties, unusual events and meeting locals!
Been on /off a part of burning man culture and communities. Used to also take up seasonal work for years. I have lots of stories to share!
Planning my next adventures in life. Thinking of taking up a seasonal adventure job this summer followed by Antartica in the fall.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I used to be SUPER active in the Portland community. I'm trying to make "Circus Church" become a weekly meetup for couchsurfers. I sometimes go to the meetups here and we often host couchsurfers (not necessarily through the website).
I've surfed in half a dozen states (at least), Canada, New Zealand, Australia...I look for CS Events in whatever city I'm in. Mostly participated in Portland, OR, but also Chicago and Auckland.
I have couchsurfed quite a few times...and love it. It's such a beautiful, friendly community...and I haven't had a bad experience yet. :)
Motorcycle ride in WY... Cliff diving and cave exploring in WA... In studio recording session... painting a mural on a wall in Utah...wonderful food not bombs/co-op houses in Boulder, CO and Denver...
