About Me


I'm trying to gather material for the art of my life


According to a close friend, I "always have something to say that's particular to the situation that lightens the mood, though it can be black humour on the odd occasion"


The trivial told beautifully beats the profound told badly

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hikes. Drinks. Potluck. Impromptu road trips. Parties. Beach.


Have road tripped and partied with fantastic people in the CS community.
