make a trillion dollars
I am from BEAUTIFUL Richmond, VA and have lived all over the US and in various countries. I really like traveling and meeting new people. I'm happiest when in the middle of a city or the middle of the wilderness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've couchsurfed with some friends and know a lot of people who couchsurf and host. All the couchsurfers I've ever met are great people. I think the idea is awesome, and look forward to offering my couch when I can.. I live in a warzone right now...
lots of things, but most importantly: hangin with my homies, hiking, biking, kayaking, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, travel, getting lost, debate
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies - most by the Coen Bros, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino... Shawshank Redemption, Dumb and Dumber, City of God are some others that come to mind...
Music - little bit of everything... I really like bluegrass, old school rap, Latin rap, alternative, rock... anything live
Books - some favorites are Mark Twain (esp Huck Finn), Steinbeck (esp East of Eden), Jack London, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Candide...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I rode my bicycle about 1300 miles throughout Colombia with my brother. Twas unbelievable.
Teach, Learn, Share
I wouldn't mind practicing my German, Spanish, Arabic, or even Kurdish..
