About Me

I've lived in six different countries, but keep coming back to the west coast of the US. I'm a Hiker/IT hybrid - introverted by nature but adventurous, I'm not a partier but I enjoy some pints of good beer over conservation. I don't smoke or do drugs, though I'm 420 friendly. Mellow but good natured. Independent, open minded, spontaneous, curious, dryly sarcastic with bouts of cheery naive idealism.

I move around a lot these days / live out of a Sprinter conversion a good chunk of the time, so hosting isn't really a thing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've crashed with people a handful of times, but I enjoy just meeting and talking to people (and maybe getting a shower in). I tend to use it less now, as budget is less a concern than time.
