About Me


Put down roots. Grow a tree. Get paper. (That's entirely a metaphor)


Just read my Facebook/My Space/ profile.


If I can't make ya laugh/creep ya out a bit while you read my profile... then why even have a profile?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a number of people so far, who have all turned out to become really close friends of mine. After patiently and attentively waiting while I showed them my squirrel skull collection, they all decided that I was a good fit as a Couch Surfing host. I now have a dope place in Qingdao, with a guest bedroom, a view of the ocean, and my squirrel skull collection proudly displayed in the living room.
Recently added: sugar glider cranium!


Hosted more than a few awesome people.
Still have yet to bring my sofa down to the beach and ride a wave...


I don't have any interests, unless you count "collecting knives" and "putting tattoos across the foreheads of people I don't like" an interest.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw a lady fit an entire canteloupe into her mouth. Well... on second thought, it was a photo of a canteloupe. But still- that's pretty awesome, right???

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach, learn share? Um...
I teach 12 year old Korean kids.
I learn how much they hate to be taught.
They share their snacks with me.

That was almost a haiku.
