About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Emerson once said, 'I pay the schoolmaster, but 'tis the schoolboys who educate my son'

I couldn't agree more with this. I've taken advantage of everything life's thrown my way so far, and I am absolutely indebted to the amazing people I've met along the way, who've shaped my views about the world, and challenged every preconceived notion I ever had. There will always be room for such people in my life!


Philosophy, the behavior of bugs, experiencing food and wine, Argentine tango, the violin, and reading reading reading.

Music, Movies, and Books

There's something beautiful about both the old and the new.

I love classical fiction as much as I love contemporary fiction!
(Particular favorites would be Russian authors like Turgenev, Dostoyevski, and Tolstoy; German authors like Mann and Goethe; English authors like Woolf and Dickens; French like Dumas fils and Victor Hugo) -- oh God there's too many of them. Contemporary ones like Cormac McCarthy, John Steinbeck, Gabriel Garcia, etc).

For music, anything that makes me want to move! Boogie woogie blues are amazing. Jazz. Dean Martin. Frank Sinatra. Beirut. Paolo Nutini. Anoushka Shankar. Norah Jones. Hozier. The Beatles. Damian Marley. Sufjan Stevens. Michael Buble. So much!

Any movie/art film that makes me think about things differently!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Performed in two national operas (Andrea chenier & Carmen)!
