Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I really love the CS community--you meet the most fascinating and inspiring people.
I've had the privilege of hosting in Singapore, Seattle, and San Francisco. And I've stayed with a pretty awesome grilled chill connoisseur in Providence and got lost en route to a host in Bali. I've also gone to a few CS parties.
If you're new to CS, this is helpful in figuring out how to request a couch: https://support.couchsurfing.org/hc/en-us/articles/200640010-How-do-I-write-a-good-couch-request. Please be thoughtful.
Let's skip this part. I have 100+ interests. (Yep I counted.)
I trust we'll have something to talk about.
Music, Movies, and Books
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've had 2,100 firsts in life. (Also counted.) And did a talk on it: www.jamesnorris.org/firsts-game
Teach, Learn, Share
I think it's awesome when you meet someone new and they make it a point to teach you something. So if you meet me...teach me. I'll be fascinated by just about anything that fascinates you. Seriously, try me.
If you're curious, I can dive into behavior change, lifehacking, positive psychology, social change, social enterprise, effective altruism, etc.
