About Me

My name is Chrissy aka Miz 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. Thinking of moving in the next few months to Puerto Rico or wherever the wind blows me.

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!

Currently writing this update from a weeks long burlesque tour --- I'm in LA!

Why I’m on 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...
