About Me

a bit of a disclaimer: I won't answer anonymous requests anymore. If you can't bother to at least type my name, maybe indicate that you've read the profile, then I have little concept of why we're a good fit. Our house is a home for the people who live here. It's not AirBnb.

Anyway, we're all pretty f'in awesome, very welcoming people with very open minds. Five of us weirdos live in this house. There is a cat, chickens in the backyard, a garden. We're all very nice, very relaxed. We do our best to accept requests of people who would enjoy our space and us. We are not a party house. We don't always keep everything super tidy, but we do our best, considering.


Vaudevillian with accordion and other instruments. Currently playing music with Calliope of the Future ( and performing at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret ( I work as a curriculum developer for a data science program. I'm also a programmer, computer science person and I juggle a lot.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have some stories. I once performed a machete dance half-naked in front of a congregation in a church in Detroit.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can breakdance with my eyebrows, play a few different instruments. I studied capoeira angola for 5 years. I play percussion ( and have a few different musical theory approaches. I do fine line illustration with inks, painting and graphic design.
