About Me


To learn/do as much as possible in and about the world before I turn into stardust again


I'm easy going, friendly and adaptable. I can be whatever kind of guest you need- I've got travel stories (I'm in Bermuda right now) if that's your thing, or I can shut up and be a ghost :) whatever you want!


My primary motivator in life is curiosity, which is kind of an odd thing. It's not really good or bad, it just is. But I like to think I'm a good person. I just don't see the point in making the world more negative when really, the world is small enough to bring it back upon your head anyway. So I try and figure out as much as I can, experience as much as I can, and meet people to love as much as I can. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Haven't participated yet!


None so far, excited to try it for the first time :)


I'm a fish. I love swimming, water, the ocean, etc. I'm studying marine science at UC Berkeley and I'm planning on going to graduate school after. Hobbies include scuba diving and spanish/classical guitar (and singing in the shower). Can I include eating as a hobby as well? I love eating.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies; Tarantino films, dark comedies, Memento, Miyazaki films, the old Star Wars films and some other sci-fi.

Music; This one's hard. I recently got into turntabling (see C2C) and electronic music (see Clean Bandit), but honestly my taste is everywhere.

Books: I recently decided I wanted to read more classics, starting with American Psycho. That was a mistake. Anyway, love me some Marcus Zusack, Chuck Palahniuk, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Once again, I'm pretty flexible. Favorite book ever was "Lullaby". Or "The Stranger".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen the great barrier reef from a remote island in Australia, minutes after the corals spawned (an event that happens once a year! :) )

Teach, Learn, Share

Someone taught me a brilliant line of poetry the other day so I'll pass that along. The poem (by Jack Gilbert) starts:
Everyone forgets that Icarus also flew.

And a science-y one, cause I am a "scientist" is:
Octopus have three hearts. Two pump water through the gills and one pumps blood through the whole body. Pretty cool right?
I can't figure out if this sort of thing is actually what this section is for...
