About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to see and do a bunch of stuff

ABOUT ME

From a farm, lives in a city. Love both settings in travel and life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Happy to help out...info, advice or showing people around.
It's cool to see the amount of generosity people can give and reciprocate.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I stayed with a person in Paris I met on a couchsurfing-like site and it changed my whole trip. She put me up for 3 nights and showed me parts of Paris I never would have thought to go. She took me to the Palace of Versailles and were able to cut the lines and go into place off limits to the public since she had a friend who worked there. Was unreal.

Interests

Historical non-fiction, satire, urban architecture/planning, sport

Music, Movies & Books

Books/Reading: Orwell, Sedaris, Diamond, Ronald Wright, Naomi Klein, Anthony Bourdain, Dan Savage

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Training at the Rafael Trejo boxing gym in Old Havana, Cuba and seeing Guillermo Rigondeaux show up. Then later meeting Felix Savon at the National Boxing Championships. Not a whiff of ego or fanfare for guys who would need bodyguards in any other country/setting.
