About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be accepted into Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. To quit my job.

ABOUT ME

Love all kinds of music from Nina Siomone to Calexico to Regina Spektor. I am the greatest guitar player in the world, but I wish I could play the trumpet. Religious history of the areas I happen to be travelling in. Hiking, climbing, biking, walking, sleeping, eating. I love motorcycles. I am a musician but don't like to acknowledge it

PHILOSOPHY

Tolerance and empathy Trying to judge people less Accumulate as many new experiences and perspectives as possible while young enough to do so - before I become old and jaded. I am a veggie (a vegetarian)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Thoroughly enjoy meeting people with completely different backgrounds than me. To fill my brain with as many different and contradicting perspectives as I can handle while I'm still young and can handle it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Some, just not within an organization such as CS.

Interests

Enjoy playing music with people (I can play the guitar and sing for you if you like) Going to see local little bands play hiking and biking religious and cultural history of areas (e.g. catherdrals, festivals, markets, etc.) coffee and beer

swimming and lying on beaches and reading

Music, Movies & Books

I have too much music but always looking to expand the library Wish I was a personal friend of Robertson Davies and Kurt Vonnegut (and Bob Dylan) I like folk music: pedal steels, acoustic and electric guitar, banjos, harmonicas Bob Dylan

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was raised by a pack of wolves in Northern Canada ... and I have sat in a rickety old chair, smoking in the sun after dinner, less than ten feet from a bear while she sat on her hind legs and ate a flower looking like Winnie the Pooh.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help you with your science homework. I am mechanically inclined, worked as a motorcycle mechanic back in Canada - I love motorcycles I can teach you to play guitar
