About Me


Learn and grow


I make bad puns, talk about random things, and like building things. I'm a software engineer, a gamer, a builder, a photographer.

I like talking with interesting people and thinking about interesting things (the order depends on my current position on the extrovert/introvert spectrum respectively)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


When I travelled through Europe, I had a great time surfing with Caspar in Berlin, Freddie in Paris, and Lucia in Dublin. CS made my trip so much more fun than if I had stayed in Hostels (which I did in my other cities)


Computers, games (computer and table-top), reading, building RC models

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Ani DiFranco, Cake, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, Ben Folds, Fiona Apple, Gorillaz, MC Frontalot
Movies (of late): V for Vendetta, Little Miss Sunshine, and The Breakfast Club (saw it last night ;)
Books: Recent favs: "To Say Nothing of the Dog" by Connie Willis and "The Once and Future King" by T.H. White

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a programmer and have fixed computers for eight years. I'd be glad to answer any questions you might have ;)

I've also learned a bit about the science/art of photography and would love to teach others what I know (or share tips). Check out some of my best shots here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cheerfulstoic/
