About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

My main interests are reading, writing, and playing and listening to music. I mostly listen to folk music like Bob Dylan and Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. I couldn't pick a favorite book---but lately I've been reading Coetzee and Naipaul. I'm also an Eagle Scout.

I realize I don't have verification or anything like that yet---but if you want some minor verification you can see this:

Or you can find me on facebook: "Christian N. Desrosiers" on the Amherst College network.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've just joined---and am currently living in my parent's house until I move to Indonesia in August---so I can't host anyone at the moment, but once I'm in Indonesia I will be more than happy to have couch surfers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I haven't couch surfed yet. My aunt has hosted a number of couch surfers and had positive experiences, which is why I joined the site.
