About Me


My mission is to travel the world using my music as my means to get by monetarily. The cheapest way to do this seems to involve couches and pleasant people. In this process I know I will meet many great friends who will last.


I am a musician from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania by the name of Ivory Weeds. I give away all my music for free because I would rather people just have it, than keep it monetarily exclusive.

I am also quite interested in Buddhism and some of the ideas of such. I don't follow it or any other ideal as a religion, but I do love to meditate. Each of my trips is part of a dissolution of ego that I carry around, until I can sustain a free will.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My means to participate now is to offer others a place to stay, but when I plan to tour with my music I will need places to stay.


I have had many people stay with me at the various places I have lived and I have also stayed with people on my various trips to Europe.


Listening to music, playing music, writing, reading, discussing, and much more.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am always eager to spread the ideas of The Zeitgeist Movement. The ideas of which most understand in their separate parts but when put together explains why we are in dire need of a new social system. I also would be happy to meditate (or teach how to those who don't know) I am always eager to learn more in science. I really enjoy it in all it's forms: *Biology, Chemistry, Genetics, *Psychology*
