About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Back in school

ABOUT ME

New arrival in Tucson, getting back into the swing of school

PHILOSOPHY

Enjoy your life in a way than doesn't keep other folks from enjoying their own. Also, I've found that anything can be interesting if you don't do it on a regular basis.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Not super-active, but have enjoyed some great hosts and always looking to give back.

Interests

I'm something of a wilderness junkie. Spend my time working and playing outdoors--backpacking, biking, kayaking, and canoeing mostly. Other turn-ons: good music, fine beer (and making it!), and like-minded people.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I love it. Everything from Gillian Welch to Atmosphere, Townes Van Zandt to Augustus Pablo, John Lee Hooker to the Gourds, Charlie Parker to Hank Williams, Bob Dylan to Del McCoury, Steve Earle to Manu Chao. You get the idea.

Reads: Cormac McCarthy, Kurt Vonnegut, David Sedaris, Douglas Coupland, Grahmm Greene, Hunter Thompson, Ed Abbey, and John Steinbeck are some of the favorites.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I managed to spend about seven years without really "living" anywhere. Half the year working seasonal wildlife jobs, the other half traveling.
