About Me

CURRENT MISSION

putting together the pieces, have a look tinyrootlets.wordpress.com

ABOUT ME

I come from a small town on a small island in the middle of the ocean off the coast of New England. The winter's are lonely and bitter cold, but there's nothing else like it, and I love it even more each time I come home. I used to go to school at Mcgill University in Montreal, QC. But, while I was there, for the first time in my life I got home sick and I got the blues real bad.
So I made the decision to make things better. I transferred schools and I travelled (Belgium, Budapest, Croatia, Ljubljana...).
The change was most definitely for the better as I am happily finishing up an undergraduate degree at UMass Amherst and I really love it. Close to the silly little island, amongst friends, in a small little town. At least it's worked for a couple years.
College educated and graduated I moved back home for a bit. Worked a ton. Headed to west Africa with my brother- and hopped over to morocco. Then headed back across the Atlantic- worked on a ship for a few months. Took the mcats. And am now currently working my way up north from Argentina and chile through Bolivia, Peru n Ecuador.

PHILOSOPHY

open the heart. let the world in.

"don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. all life is an experiment. the more experiments you make the better." - Emerson

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I don't currently have a couch to contribute, but as soon as I do I will gladly open my doors.

As far as surfing, I have a great attitude and a desire to see how other people live! So if you please, let me in.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

No formal experience yet, I just have friends that have hosted loads of people and really loved it.
I grew up couch surfing at family homes and friends of friends places, so any sort of roof over my head will do. I am flexible and love to lend a hand in the kitchen!

Interests

I love microbiology, music, the atlantic ocean, the american river, sailing!, swimming, my dog (T-Beau) and cats (Cricket and LoveBug), laughing, good conversation and a warm cup of coffee. I am headed to med school after I get a bit more of the travel jitters out.

Music, Movies & Books

harold and maude, jeff bridges (the big lebowski and true grit), paul newman (cool hand luke);
huckleberry finn, dave eggers, harry potter, even cowgirls get the blues (tom robbins), divisadero (michael oondatje);
florence and the machine, drive-by truckers, gillian welch, the fugees, steele pulse, taj mahal

One Amazing Thing I've Done

swimming in the waves of the Atlantic I call home, hitching through Patagonia to check out piedra parada, an open ocean passage on a sail boat that was about 13 days, hiked around dogon country, been to the pyramids, and stood up for something I believe in.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am really interested in medicine and more complete healing methods than modern western medicine has to offer. I would love to learn more about individual's or other culture's healing methods.
I also know how to knit, dabble with guitar and am a pretty swell cook... What can you share with me?!
