About Me


top secret


I'm an artist in Brooklyn, NY. I've been busy moving around for several years, but I now live in NYC most the time and like it. I want to make sure my time is well spent.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed and been surfed. Check out my many references!


If couchsurfing was a job, you would hire me based on my experience.


Medieval Epic Poetry

  • poetry

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently: creative projects that I can help with, being pro, Arthurian legend, photography, film, darkness taken lightly.

All that follows is severely dated. But, you know, you can't freeze frame the progress of the mind, and I'm just not that good at status updates. I leave it because on Couchsurfing I believe it's better to give people a chance to make erroneous assumptions about you based on your frankness, than it is to let your poetic inclinations insure misinterpretation.

the Dardenne brothers, Seijun Suzuki, Aki Kurasmaki, Wong Kar Wai, Kim Ki Duk, Shoei Imamura, Alexandro Jodorowsky, Fernando Arabal, the Coen Brothers, Lars von Trier, Claire Denis, Wim Wenders, lots of other stuff, do we really have to do this?
lately: Children of Man, the Proposition, Samuri Fiction, Toni Takatani, the Long Goodbye, Irreversible, that younger kurasawa... man bites dog, breathless, noi, funny ha ha... how am i going to remember everything? i always go to up date this and i can never remember...
lately: michael hurley, hammers of misfortune, fabrizio de andre, amon amarth, herb alpert, control machete, aavikko, les paul and mary ford, georges brassens, vladimir visotsky, JABLKON!!!, leonard cohen, les primitif du futur, yves montand, aphex twin, tom waits, r. crumb, blonde redhead, olavi virta, opeth, finntroll, kool keith, Iso mies ja keijukainen... some more...
Books: Aside from Medieval stuff, julio cortazar, murakami, hemingway, kundera, marquez, hesse, william gibson, and raymond chandler. occasionaly, shaun tan, edward gorey, ryu murakami, dave mckean.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There's a lot to do. I figure it's not exactly good form for me to evaluate what I've done.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've never learned anything truly important from someone who was conscious of what they were teaching.
