About Me

I tend to live more like i'm playing a game of tetris rather than chess.
I'm always negotiating with that balance of working with whatever comes your way and hunting for what you want.

As far as making money goes: Disability support work, massage therapy and hospitality are my main trades currently.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've met many a happy couchsurfer and finally after years i might be getting the chance to travel again.
California, i'm looking at you!
I want to explore your queer, kink and artsy parties and try impossibly to hug a redwood tree.

New York maybe but you're so full on baby you might have to wait!

Music, Movies, and Books

TUNES:
Sorry to sound boring but i really do love all genres of music, so long as it's quality and has heart. I love streaming local radio stations to keep in touch with what my city's up to and it also stops me from just listening to the same stuff all the time. Radiotuna is also perfect for taking that worldwide!

Lately I've been enjoying deep instrumental stuff like Earth and Sigur Ros but there's an obsessed lyricist in me as well to which i turn to local hip hop, gothics like Nick Cave or great femmes like Martha Wainwright, Malvina Reynolds, Bjork etc..
Puberty hit in the 90s so don't be surprised to ever see me indulging in that.
Old Italian folk music also gets a spin especially when Ma & Pa come over because i like my guests to feel right at home.
p.s RIP Prince

SCREEN:
Shortbus, Closer, Star Wars (shut up!), Wild (2016), Coherence, Best in Show, The X Files (i said shut up!), Twilight Zone, Eat Carpet, Louis CK, anything by Ghibli but documentaries too yes please!

READS:
Non Fiction: The Brain that Changes itself, God is Not one, Sexual Fluidity, Italian Witchcraft
Fiction: Perfume - story of a murderer, Candy, Women who Run with Wolves, Questions for Ada

Unlike music, most movies and books don't get a second run with me, i just feel like life is too short. So please don't be alarmed by my lack of physical collection, i borrow a lot and let things go.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some basic massage techniques, Italian (though i know mostly a dying breed of dialect).
I enjoy encouraging others to play. Whatever form that may come in is up to the moment and the personalities at hand...

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love cooking and home care in general. Sharing stories, human bemusement and worldly experiences is the juice of life.
