Sobre mí


to push myself out of my comfort zone, in a good way. (i work at the welfare office, so unfortunately i am often pushed out of my comfort zone in a bad way.) remember the magic that is really out there! good people! you exist, right?


i am a fire sign, a writer, a queer, a feminist, an eye roller, a face maker, and a former new yorker.

i got on a greyhound bus right after high school. met a lot of wacky people, saw a few magnificent sunrises. learned so much more than i would have if i'd gone to college.

i read a lot of books but i can get buck wild sometimes. i'm in a kind of settled-down phase of my life. pleasant, not boring. the distinctions are important.

i just finished my first novel, a scoop of queer-girl-punkhouse-love. i've been writing zines for 15 years now (and am going on zine tour summer 2011. if you get a couch request from me, it's probably because you're in a city where i'm reading!). i spent 8 years working in prison book programs. my activism is stealth & within the system now, but i've got big dreams.

Por qué estoy en Couchsurfing


i like surprises. i like travelers (who are respectful & nice). i like the idea that we can trust strangers.


i have never really surfed with strangers before. however, i have stayed on many a friend's couch, all over the country, and befriended their housemates. i've also had many a punkhouseguest who i didn't know, and i miss that feeling of taking someone into your home and hanging out with them intensely for a few days.


zines, yams, sewing, bikes, prison book programs, charming scarves, things with faces on them, kale, typewriters, books. community gardens, greywater, yoga, rubber stamps, odd museums, exploring small towns.
