About Me

Soaking up everything! I studied Environmental Sciences with a Religion minor at University of Vermont, but am a college dropout until it doesn't cost two arms n' a leg. Homesteading in my future, exploring in my now.

I AM: play-in-the-dirt, super mellow, body-moving, earth eating, looking west. Searching for self-sustainability and eco-conscious ideas that may sprout up on my path. Vipassana chickadee. Real ready to meet new humans, too!


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Human connections are some of the strongest forces of nature, and how crazy that a force so strong can happen on a couch!


Hiking, 35mm photography, conversation , camping, eating, drinking water, yawning, sun bathing, playing saxophone, gardening, skiing and snowboarding, climbing and bouldering, fermenting everything, primitive skills, making bread, hands in the dirt, reading, philosophy, poetry, most everything.
