About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Surfing (waves) and trying to grow my first beard.

ABOUT ME

I am currently living the good life, exploring SE Asia and the rest of the world. Making friends the world over, surfing, playing guitar, rock climbing.

Always looking for partners for a jam sesh, surf sesh, climbing sesh, any kind of sesh really, just drop me a line.

PHILOSOPHY

I live somewhere near the intersection of optimism, objectivism and Lebowskiism.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Surfing and partying hard.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Been a member since using it to help find people to practice Spanish with while living in Buenos Aires in 2010. Since then, have hosted a few friends, and I am really interested in getting much deeper into the community on my current trip which will take me from Indonesia to Brazil (for the world cup) over the course of a year.

Interests

Surfing, climbing and bouldering, music, guitar, snowboarding, reading, cooking eggs, and most recently, oneironautics.

Music, Movies & Books

Currently reading: Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming, The 4-Hour Chef

Just finished reading: 1Q84, The Geography of Bliss, The Unthinkable, In The Shadow of the Banyan, Floating on a Malayan Breeze

Up Next: re-reading Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have lived in California, long enough to know that I'd like to die there. And I've lived in Argentina long enough to know that (for now) I'd like to be buried somewhere in Patagonia. That's amazing enough by my standards.

Teach, Learn, Share

What can I teach you, let's see:

* First-time ever surf lesson (includes paddling out, popping up, and safety tips)
* Simple songs on the guitar
* Bouldering (rock climbing) technique
* How to cook orange rice (my favorite dish, and also named by me as a youngin'. It's only orange in color, btw.)
* Secret recipe for cleaning your car's windows (this is worth letting me surf at your place, trust)

Countries I've Visited

Argentina, Austria, Bahamas, Cambodia, Canada, Chile, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, Liechtenstein, Malaysia, Netherlands, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, United Kingdom, Uruguay, Viet Nam

Countries I've Lived In

Argentina, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, United States
