Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am looking for places to crash across the country in colder temps; when I had my own place to stay, I offered it to traveling poets.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
As far as what I've done, I've been a star/co-star in indie films & an extra in big-budget ones, I've been a part of a cutting-edge world-premiere play on a Tony-award winning stage & of a couple Renaissance-theater productions, & I've run the 48 Hour Film Project for 3yrs in Providence (www.48hourfilm.com).
As for what I've seen, I watched my son be from his mother's womb untimely ripped; I saw him in the Special Care (NICU step-down) unit, hooked up to hoses & IVs & still with large eyes & a smile on his face; that is the most amazing thing I've seen.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm a performance poet with some knowledge of all arts & media, a ULC minister studying all spiritualities, & a decent cook. I always leave some of my work with my hosts, as a thank-you, plus I leave parts of any food I make for the house.
I would love to learn a little more about computers, specifically graphic design; I think I could be really good at that.
