O mnie


Have the smallest footprint possible.


My fiance, Jason, and I are transplants to the West Coast, originally hailing from Maryland (DC metro area). We moved to Boise in April 2016 after living in Olympia, Washington for about 3 years. I work for the USGS as an Ecologist. Jason primarily does summertime wildlife work (currently with forest service in Burns, Oregon).

I am vegan and a bit of an overachieving cook. I recently published my first ebook cookbook, Seitan's Kitchen (http://www.amazon.com/Seitans-Kitchen-Devilishly-Vegan-Recipes-ebook/dp/B00ONLIV6M). I love all things fermented and regularly made my own soy/coconut yogurt, cashew cheese, sauerkraut, sourdough bread, kombucha, and kimchi. I have a hard time staying still. Relaxing is something I'm still working on....


Do the least harm you possible can. My goal in life is to make a difference in other people's lives.

Dlaczego jestem na Couchsurfing


I've surfed a lot and with many, many amazing people. I've hosted a few people at our place. I've organized a few couchsurfing meetups in Olympia and really hope to do more.


Couchsurfed in Spain, Norway, and the US. Many wonderful couchsurfing hosts, particularly in Norway where I truly met some of the kindest people. I met my best friends in Olympia via couchsurfing!

Jedna niesamowita rzecz, którą zrobiłem(-am)

Skiing in Rondane, Norway. Norwegians pretty much grow up on skis so I was rather woefully unprepared to keep up when I went on a ski tour with the Norwegian equivalent of the American Sierra Club. Somehow, I made it through seven days of extremely slippery side slopes with just a pair of dinky groomed trail rental skis.

Ucz innych, ucz się sam, udostępniaj

I know how to belay climb, and tie all the knots. I can do some teaching of Spanish/English. I am a great vegan cook and would love to cook for just about anyone. I can play piano and guitar.

Czym mogę się podzielić z gospodarzami

I can cook a meal for you or with you. I love sharing local craft brews with you.

Canada, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Norway, Spain

Kraje, w których mieszkałem(-am)
