Essentially, my philosophy is that life can be tough enough, so why would you want to do anything that makes it tougher for someone else? And conversely, why would you not do something to help someone else out? This matches the CS spirit pretty well, I feel.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
By couch surfing, letting people stop over, and getting together with local CSers. Many of the most wonderful people I've met have been through CS, and I want to keep it going.
I've hosted and been hosted, and have initiated a few CSer potlucks here in town.
History, politics, and sushi. Yum!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Many parts of Yellowstone National Park make you feel as if you're on another planet, so seeing those was definitely amazing. Lake Marie, near Laramie, is one of my favorite places. It's so peaceful there. And usually snowy.
Summer in Milwaukee is pretty amazing, although of course it goes by too fast.
I'm of the opinion that the smallest things can be amazing if you let yourself appreciate them.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm learning how to screen print and I love making collages, so I could show you how to do that.
What I Can Share with Hosts
- travel stories
- insights about archives and the construction of history, especially as it relates to marginalized cultures
- a deep and abiding love of cats
