About Me


Update! will be out of the country traveling in Europe and the Congo from July to October !!

Thriving, dancing, playing hard and often. Rendering myself to new experiences.


I am gregarious, active and diversified in my interests; a lover of music, expression, dance, eating, cooking, and growing food. I love being outdoors in all manners :)


Live fully. Whatever it is that you do, do it thoroughly and have fun.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

So far I have only been hosting people but I look forward to surfing some couches in the upcoming year!


I've stayed with kind "strangers" in France, Holland, Italy, Mexico, California and beyond. Sometimes friends of friends and sometimes just people that I've met along the way. Most often my experiences couchsurfing lead me to better experiences that I could have ever plannned :)


I spend my time woodworking, eating and drinking with friends, playing music, riding motorcycles to far away lands and just around Oakland, playing outdoors, dancing..

Music, Movies & Books

So much music I can't start here. I am a musicologist of sorts.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Two winters ago I rode enduro motorcycles with a friend to the Cabo San Lucas, in Baja California, Mexico and back from Oakland CA, USA! It was about 6400 km of street and offroad riding. So amazing I just want to keep going around the world!

I just got back from going to burningman for the 8th time. So fun, so ridiculous.
