About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live with no regrets, de vivre un renaissance chaque an

ABOUT ME

I love traveling and meeting free spirited wanderers. I`m a lifelong student; and musician, just trying to survive and find inspiration; So, I`m teaching English and France and starting a band: If you have a guitar, I can play some music for you, or have a nice jam, I love harmonizing, a la simon and garfunkle, beatles: I enjoy reading, learning foreign languages, watching strange films in the middle of the night, drawing, wandering in forests, being abducted by aliens (friendly aliens):

PHILOSOPHY

I live my life in hopes of realizing myself, expressing what I am, in hopes that someday I'll truly know, and reaching others, true communication is exceedingly rare. I know the world and society are beyond help, but I'll still do whatever I can to try to counter the short-sided madmen we call leaders and the ignorance, cynicism, and fanaticism that they thrive upon. I Have recently begun to learn that individual happiness and fulfillment must never be contingent on the global climate (unless you want to end up like Raskolnikov...) (not to worry: I'm not this pretentious in person)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'd like to do my part to help the community once I have a place of my own, though at the moment, all I can do is offer some music perhaps, and some stories.... Je jou la guitare flamenco et le "indie" quoi que ca veut dire... (but of course, I would never dream of playing music while a guest in someone's home unless they wanted me to)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've stayed with friends I met in Prague where I was teaching last year. We met in a cafe, and they were from Sardegna, so I start speaking Italian with them, and they invite me to come by. That summer I found myself wandering southern Italy, and as the money was running low, their offer literally saved me. We shared some beautiful experiences. Playing with their tiny cats, and being washed out to sea in an inflatable swimming pool with their nephew, laughing hysterically all the while! I still write my adopted Italian family.

Interests

I'm fascinated with history, mythology (je viens de lire du Joseph Campbell et du Jung) psychology recently, mysticism, dreams, music, art, I've been working on little primitive animated projects as videos for some songs I've written.

Music, Movies & Books

currently reading

Kurt Vonnegut - Cats Cradle the Portable Jung

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Once I (and a friend) snuck down into a jungle valley and explored some ancient ruins that were completely off limits, and I didn't have a camera with me, and didn't mind at all!

Teach, Learn, Share

I haven't had enough sleep to come up with anything, I'll get back to you on that.
