About Me


Culinary exploration and economic policy-making


I love new experiences. I can't get enough new food, music, scenery, art. That's not to say that I'm not selective. In fact, I'm picky, but I simply pick the best.

I love bad puns and good humor. I write whimsical pop songs.


Pragmatic idealism.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Still new to this. Have mostly been meeting Couchsurfers in my city.


These are a few of my favorite things:

- live music and theatre - playing songs on my ukulele - visual art - Argentine tango

- exploring a new city - experiencing different cultures/food - cooking - making fancy cocktails; wine tasting

- walking, biking, hiking - international political economy - esoterica

But only a few.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: every Miyazaki film, every Coen Brothers film, Beetlejuice, sad films with sad endings

Books: Salman Rushdie, Philip Roth, Graham Greene

Music: Prince, James Brown, P-Funk, Springsteen, Van Morrison, Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, Les Savy Fav, Dismemberment Plan, Caetano Veloso, I could go on forever

One Amazing Thing I've Done

* Climbing the Mayan temples in Tikal (Guatemala) in the early morning: now that's real time travel.
