About Me


Konka los Babonkalos, remain in one piece.


I wasn't born. I fired myself out of a shotgun. I spend most of my time trying not to explode, simply because life is entirely preposterous. My work is to play too.

Woody Guthrie - Song for CS,
you can listen to it while reading my profile, its a little taste of how things will be in my vicinity.



"My country is the world, and my religion is to do good."
Thomas Paine

"It makes no difference if it's sweet or hot,
Just keep that rhythm, give it everything you've got!"
-Duke Ellington (It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


What an experience! I couchsurfed oh yeah! and hosted those who don't mind sleeping in a big pink tent. Shared some food, got gifts, gave gifts, went out, stayed in more luxury than my own home, stayed in less, most important I met fantastic folk!


Music Festivals, Trumpet, Guitar, Washboard, Cazoo's, Dancing, Jumping, Stretchy Velvet, tasty food, Walking, not having anything in my pockets, Marionettes, watching mosquitoes from inside a bug net, Lucid Dreaming, Imaginary Healing, campfires, perusing, a good laugh, dumpster food, growing flowers, dragon boats, tap dance, storytelling, stuffing my pants with organic bok-choy, simple, difficult, down yonder

Music, Movies, and Books

I like my music WILD! I have an addiction to Jug Band music. I also hold a big love for swing, samba, salsa, gypsy music, klezmer, old blues, and folk.
As far as music goes I guarantee we have an overlap in music tastes somewhere!

Teach, Learn, Share

teach me the universe, how to samba, how to make a music video.
I give free trumpet lessons. That is if you don't mind sharing a few mouthpiece germs! I give free tap lessons. Would you like to brew beer? Play with crazy DJ programs? Maybe exchange some dance moves too. I feel more moves in the repertoire is a good thing for all!
