About Me


I'm just a space cadet roaming the planet in search of peace and happiness.


Who, me? I'm just a space cadet looking for peace and happiness on this planet. The buck doesn't stop there. I'm either getting myself into trouble in Kyrgyzstan, trying to be a disco punk in London, waiting for a train in New Jersey, drinking to the declining hippie culture in San Francisco, or living it up in New York. Give me a beer and pizza, and I can talk gibberish for hours. Wanna match up wits? Give me good music, and see me do the "stiff" boogie. Yeah baby!


I've lived in 11 cities over 4 continents over the last decade. I've reported from war zones. I'm a news and travel junkie, a hermit who can't stay in one place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meet people, organize events perhaps, and offer a couch.


I've slept on ox carts, concrete floors, drunk in a tub packed with ice and beers. Ah, all in the name of sleep.


Russia, books, reading, martial arts, news reporting, writing, traveling, volunteering, bhangra music, international music, house, local bands, jazz, lounge, and much, much more.
