About Me

Work at a lumberyard. Write. Play pool at Hinano's by the Venice Pier. Bicycle only. Fat and bearded. Pleasant, good conversationalist, fantastic cooking.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Despite a full time job, no criminal record or substance abuse issues, and a chunk of change, I'm having a hell of a time finding a place to live that isn't crazy expensive or super sketchy. So I put my stuff in storage and here I am.


Bicycles, food, literature, welding, the future of humanity and the planet (current prevailing trends point to bad news).

  • literature
  • dining

Music, Movies, and Books

Cervantes, Celine, Vonnegut.
Dr. Strangelove, Bottle Rocket, Yojimbo.
Lightning Bolt, Bad Brains, Mahler.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have a James Joyce quote tattooed on my back. It's like a paragraph. It's pretty big. Think Pam's tat in Archer kinda real estate.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can tie a mean knot, sharpen knives, fix anything on a bicycle and weld in MIG, TIG and oxyacetylene.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Not having used this system before I'm not sure what to put here. I can show you how to build bicycle wheels, fix your roof or cook you dinner (or breakfast- breakfast is awesome).
