About Me


to live with my feet on the ground, my head in the clouds, led blindly by my heart, seeing clearly the whole time


for the past 5.5 years i have been working with young women with developmental disabilities, they have taught me more than i could ever possibly imagine i could teach them: how to really prioritize life needs(not wants), how to stay true to myself no matter what society thinks, how not to judge a book by its cover but to really dig deep and see worth,,, i am extremely grateful for what i have, i feel really happy from the inside, i am enjoying growing up..... i do not have any pets, hopefully later in life, but right now i do not want to take on that kind of responsibility, i like to at least have the opportunity to get up and go on a whim,


om mani padme hum = the jewel in the lotus = everything in the universe is perfect = its all good

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


boulder group, snowboarding group and a few others that i participate in,, there is this weird snowball effect, where you start and slowly but surely it gets bigger and bigger, and the opportunities start knocking, so i am going with the flow, surfing


recently i have been transient, i have had 6 addresses in the last year so i finally got a po box, now i can go wherever and whenever, but it also means i don't really host as i never know where i am going to be.... i like to meet couchsurfers, often its the best part of a long weekend exploring some new place, i am so grateful to all that have couches, i promise i will have one of my own someday!!!


i like to sit and be amazed at the beauty of the world, i take a lot of photographs, the ones in my cs profile just skim the barrel, snowboarding, driving-especially on the winding roads of colorado, my sis lives in steamboat so i often drive just to drive there...

Music, Movies, and Books

WEEN, les claypool and anybody he plays with including especially skerik and mike dillon, wilco, flaming lips, devendra banhart, mark twain, i like buddhism, i like reading about the year 0 and how the next two centuries have overwhelmingly influenced life today, and i guess i like all historical non-fiction... or fiction if that includes goddesses and gods,, interesting how the lines get blurry. i have never really been into the politics in the us, but i read a book by hunter s. thompson about the '92 presidential campaign and absolutely loved it, i 'spose it was his style as opposed to content... i like jazz and funky funky but i am a radio listener also so i can sing along, i like rock n roll n hip hop, i attempt break dancing but i usually just end up sore in strange places,,, well i do not watch a whole lot of movies but i think i finally remember that i do like... oh i forget his name, he did royal tenebaums, darjeeling limited, etc i like those movies, wonderful, colorful,,, i am sure that there is more

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

the sunrise tends to be amazing, everyday... i now live out in the country outside of boulder colorado. colorado in general is absolutely gorgeous in all seasons,, now that i am a little further away i can see stars that i have never seen before, and at the same time see the lights of 3 surrounding 'cities'

Teach, Learn, Share

when was the last time you used a disposable camera?? i realize this day and age everyone has a digital camera, myself included,,, but i recommend carrying around a disposable every once in a while, since you cannot review and edit the photos to perfection to just sit on your camera, when you finally get that film back from your local photo-shop, its like opening a time capsule of memories...try it
