About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to be a source of silly, intellectual, genuine, passionate experience.

ABOUT ME

I like science and clean water and earth so I became an environmental engineer.
I come from a family of six. My mom homeschooled me, my dad let me go to work with him. With my siblings I maintain an adequate amount of rivalry.
My ideal almond to chocolate chip ratio is 5:4.
I don't use paper towels. I do take showers.
I like dance parties and vegan baking.
I am vegan and I get plenty of protein.
I absolutely love my bicycle and going to potlucks.
I led a water project in El Salvador and it was one of the most radical experiences of my life.
I value sustainability and DIYing.
Hiking, clothing optional hot springs, bike riding, and snowboarding are my most favorite outdoor adventures.
POETRY!

Also, I make mean enchiladas and chocolate chip cookies.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed! On a crazy awesome road trip I took Summer 2012.

I have hosted plenty of very awesome folks, and I think you should be next, but you should be warned: I ask surfers who stay with me to write a haiku. About where they are from. Would you participate? Hope so!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Nothing but wonderful. So, so wonderful.

Interests

crafting, snowboarding, camping, yoga, baking, thrifting, bike riding, science, tutoring, dance-offing, hiking, potlucks, writing poems, knitting.

Music, Movies & Books

I never remember movies I like.

My favorite book of all time might be "Rain of Gold" by Victor Villasenor. I also really love "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau.

I'm a bluegrass junkie and I'm all about Elephant Revival, Shakey Graves, and Tallest Man. However, I'm expanding my horizons into the world of shoegaze and post-rock and it's been wonderful -- I'd love some recommendations there. I will always love Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

This question used to be "one amazing thing I've *seen,*" so:
Hundreds of thousands of tadpoles in the Redwood Creek. They were all in various stages of growth. They attached to my feet and inspired dust storms at the river's bottom. It was like nothing else.

Also I ski bummed in Crested Butte. Face shots for life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can craft with you. Especially scrapbooks and knitted things.
I can yoga with you. Especially Bikram.
I can share poems with you.
I can help you with math homework.
I can camp and hike with you! Geocache-ing will make us feel like we're secret agents.
I can make some yummy {vegan} foods with you.
I can show you some wonderful coffee shops and breweries, Fort Collins has many.
I can take you on a bike ride, because we have a bike library in town and plenty of cool places to see on two wheels.
