About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Have fun. Fun Connoisseurs.

ABOUT ME

Harley and Jes are friends who have graduated together from art school in New York. They currently run an art/project space together in their storefront flat. In Berlin they have a large rotation of friends and friends of friends visiting and occupying the couches and extra mattresses so haven't been able to officially couch host.
We are all feminists, activists, and artists who are eager to meet interesting new people and share ideas, skills, and have fun.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We have taken a few major trips together and apart using couch surfing. Currently Jes is couch surfing through Spain and looking for lovely people to meet and spend time with.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Our first time using couchsurfing was really amazing. We only hope for more experiences to come!

Interests

Feminism. Art. Queer rights, politics. Relations of race and class. In search of how to genuinely create safe spaces and apply observed social inequality from academia into real change.

We're recently college graduates (real people), so we're in a precarious but exciting point in our lives.

Cats. We love 'em. David Lynch/ Twin Peaks. Boardwalk Empire. Daria.

Tumblr. And the internet. We're big fans.

Knitting (want to learn how to crotchet), sewing and needle point.

Love to cook and we love trying new things. Not picky whatsoever.

Music, Movies & Books

French New Wave//Soviet Cinema//Eastern European Cinema//American Avant-Garde
Classic Punk//Surf + Garage//Electronica//Dance//Contemporary Folk//Singer-Songwriter//Chamber Pop//Indie Rock
Some of my favorite authors are Carson Mcullers, Kate Bornstein, Leslie Fienberg, David Foster Wallace, Laura Mulvey, etc.

Harley:
I just read Zami, by Audre Lorde, and I fell in love with it. Right now I'm reading Annabelle, a present from my mama. I really want to hear the new Man Man album and I've been listening to a lot of My Gay Banjo, Joanna Newsom and Blu and Exile.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Knit a scarf in a day.

Will enjoy an egg with anything.

Teach, Learn, Share

FIlm - Writing - Photo - Art - Gender - Sexuality - Community Organizing

Can edit and give a loving and critical eye to any piece of writing or creative piece.

Would love to learn any form of dance that you're into.

Can teach knitting! And dishes that we're familiar with.

Would love to discuss any burning ideas on sexuality, gender, race, capitalism, globalization or anything else you may have!
