About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To learn about the world and its people. To better understand cultures and then share that information widely. Understanding generates peace and goodwill, and I'm into that.

ABOUT ME

There are many things that are out of our control, so when bad things happen (or good ones too) we should just go with the flow, grow and learn from the challenging opportunity at hand, and try not to get too ruffled about it. I am excited about learning and experienceing different philosophies. I think a well informed, yet humble mind is very valuable. It's important to know what you know but even more important to know what you do not. I am forever a student, always learning. I hope to master some things in my life, but for now I am just an eager apprentice.

PHILOSOPHY

Love is very important. As is forgiveness and compassion, for yourself and others. Being too hard on oneself is nearly always counterproductive. It takes hard work and diligence, but anything is possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hosted a little in Colorado, and am into the selfless giving and human exchange that couch surfing promotes amongst people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great conversations and unexpected friendships.

Interests

So many things! Pretty much any and everything outside, many many sports, jumping in puddles, jumping off of high things into water, running around. Meditating. Learning. Talking with people. All kinds of people from all kinds of backgrounds and from all over the world. Writing, reading. Hugging. Doing headstands.

Music, Movies, and Books

Yes. I like it all. I've been reading a lot recently.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the most amazing things I have done was a pilgrimage to the sacred mountain Kawagebo on the border between China and Tibet in Yunnan province. This intensely challenging, wonderful, spiritual experience is one of the toughest things I have done, and it has fundamentally changed who I am. It also helped to define my spiritual connection to mountains and has put my definitively on the path that I now walk.
