About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Go.

ABOUT ME

Curious and grateful.

I live for life, and every day I'm amazed.

PHILOSOPHY

Q. "What about obstacles?"

A. "Feint left, run right. Charge like a hipposaurus. Blast with lasers. Drag along. Pretend not there. Surmount."

Balance.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

To me, CS means a deeper, more authentic experience than any touristic trip. It is an opportunity to learn and share and make real connections when traveling, which is to me the whole point of traveling in the first place.

I am FINALLY in a position to start hosting, and I am super stoked. Looking forward to meeting you!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The CS project and the community that has been built around it is something very near and dear to my heart. I have had nothing but beautiful, positive, enriching experiences. Whether hosting or surfing, it's one of those things that reaffirms my faith in humanity every time - allowing me to meet the most open, generous, and friendly people and giving me opportunities I would have never had otherwise.

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much to everyone I have met through this project! You all have very special, unique places in my heart forever and always.

Interests

New and old. Past/present/future/etc. I'm a language nut. Music head. Love to read and learn. Genuinely love people and feel a very strong connection with humanity as a collective whole. I like the subtle, simple, creative, and complex. Color! Rhythm! Harmony!

I like smiles and laughter. Curves and straight lines. Sharp wooden pencils. Sharp minds. I like hands and skin and eyeballs. Beer and gin. I love to cook delicious vegetarian meals - especially with friends. Sing and dance and boom-boom-bip wherever I go. I like clean and organized, but can appreciate and enjoy a craze. I like scars. Reciprocation. Mathematics and linguistics. Spicy foods and good tea. Loud and soft. I like genuine.
