About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I live in a state of deep gratitude and love to share in stories and experiences with people. As I meet others, my world expands, thus challenging perspective and shifting views. Change is the only constant, and I am constantly embracing its ebb and flow.

ABOUT ME

I enjoy writing, thinking, conscious breathing, meditation, yoga, dance, live music, spending time with people, indulging in creativity, being in and one with nature, and participating in healing arts. I adore meeting new people and expanding my worldview and spiritual perspective. I want to hear about other people's experiences with their life and travels, so please feel free to contact me, even if it's just for an email chat or for coffee.

PHILOSOPHY

To play, and to make a positive impact on Earth while here! To live as if every moment were my last.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Although much of my time in occupied at this stage in my life, I do always love meeting interesting people, especially travelers, so if I'm able and available I'd love to offer to show you around Chico, CA, or just get together and chat over a cup of coffee or tea.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I first hosted a couchsurfer in San Luis Obispo, CA. Great guy. Then when I first arrived in Maui, I couchsurfed in Kihei, back in 2009. Ended up living in Maui for a stint, and enjoyed every moment of the island life and aloha spirit. Eventually, I couchsurfed in Vietnam. All experiences have been totally different—such is the world and all people on it!

Interests

Dancing, writing, creating, socializing, listening to music, practicing yoga, eating, being present, reading, learning, and meeting new and interesting people.

Music, Movies & Books

Cloud Atlas, The Matrix, Stranger Than Fiction, The Fall, LA Story, Like Water For Chocolate, and many more.
As far as authors go, I adore Drunvalo Melchizedek, Deepak Chopra, and Don Miguel Ruiz. I love The Mists of Avalon, Life of Pi, Ishmael, The Monk, He's Scared She's Scared, Tribal Leadership, Wandering, and many, many more.
My music preferences are long and obscure, but some of my current favorites include Ronald Jenkees, Afro-Celt Sound System, any reggae or beatboxing, most dj beats, etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Worked as a first mate on a Catamaran in Maui during whale season and communed with the whales. Spectacular.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to chat and share perspective with each other.
