About Me

I love to explore ideas, places, and people! Quite introverted but open to consider all walks of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To increase my chances of having a serendipitous interaction and help people with their travels!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Usually prefer instrumental (e.g., Carbon Based Lifeforms, Boards of Canada) or some industrial rock (Zeromancer).

Movies: The Matrix has been my favorite movie since I was a kid; some others I really like are Bound (lesbian neo-noir) and The Handmaiden (psychological thriller).

Books: My favorite book is Thus Spake Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche. I love reading anything with provocative ideas.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

While CouchSurfing in South Dakota, I made friends with another traveler who was visiting my host. He went with me on my camping trip to the Badlands and taught me how to set up a tent for my first time! I got to sleep under the stars with bison and surrender to new sensory experiences in this alien-like landscape.

Teach, Learn, Share

"I know that wandering might seem a strange form of life to someone with a science background, which tends to give you a prospect out ahead of what you're doing, but while wandering, you experience a kind of mysteriously organic process. It's like a tree growing. It doesn't know where it's growing next. A branch may grow out this way, then that way, and then another way. If you let it be that way and don't have pressures from outside, when you look back, you'll see that this will have been an organic development." -Joseph Campbell
