To explore America. America, by the way, is this drag queen I met a few weeks ago.
I'm a 36 year old gay liberal atheist living in Philadelphia. I've spent my entire adult life as a performer, with varying degrees of success. You may have seen me on TV, or heard my songs in TV soundtracks. More likely than not you haven't.
Right now I'm touring the USA doing stand-up comedy gigs, and you may (not) be surprised to learn that the pay rate versus the cost of hotels is not super awesome. So I'm looking for friendly folks who might enjoy having a guy who is funny around, but who - once settled in for the night - is pretty quiet and laid back.
I don't smoke or do any drugs, and I rarely drink. It's also entirely possible upon my visit that I may stay at someone else's house for an evening. If you don't know what I mean by that, we're probably not a match; and if I did do, I would text you to let you know. :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have a couch in a private room in my apartment in West Philadelphia that is available for surfers.
I've never actually surfed via the site before, but I'll let you know when I do!
I'm a big fan of indie films and female singer songwriter. Give me a Martha Plimpton movie and a Tori Amos album and I'm set for the evening.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Starred in a terrible reality TV show.
Teach, Learn, Share
My obsessive pop culture knowledge is expansive. I have run several quizzos that were focused entirely on pop culture and I wrote all of my own questions.
Here's one of my favorites: What is the REAL first name of Tootie Ramsey on The Facts of Life? (The CHARACTER, not the actress Kim Fields.) NO GOOGLING or your team loses a point!
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm in a gorgeous apartment in the heart of University City, one of the most beautiful and culturally diverse parts of West Philadelphia. Within five minutes walk from me are restaurants of every type, bars and clubs, theaters, ancient churches, and public transportation right outside my door that takes you to the heart of the city and beyond.
Countries I’ve Visited
Canada, France, Germany, Greenland, Iceland, Mexico
