About Me


To be a connoisseur of life and all it has to offer <3


I love to travel and I love to meet people. I chose art and specifically live performance, as my means of spreading joy and reaching out to others. I do street performance as a silent clown because words are too often a barrier to communication and an inhibitor of good experiences.

I am also a vegetarian yoga lover, (me and everyone else in california :)


I live because I choose to. And it is a choice. Because of this, I am responsible for how I live it. I make my reality what I want it to be.

Why don't people smile more?

"Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so."
-Robert Ingersoll, 1882

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Met lots of really cool people at all kinds of CS shindigs! CSers know how to throw it down, yo :)


Buenos Aires, Argentina. That was an amazing week with amazing people!


Everything but mostly people. Music and having a good time with new things is definitely high up there on the list.

Theatrical endeavors in all their triumphs and fails.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to electronica/trip-hop and acoustic rock/pop mostly, love watching movies that are artful not explosive, and live by the writings of Kahlil Gibran, Richard Bach, and the awesomeness that is Das Energi and the Alchemist.

One day, I hope to finish a banana split on my own :P
