* I'm staying in Berlin for the month of August. During the rest of the year, I live in Phoenix, AZ. I'm taking in couchsurfers because I've enjoyed hosting in the past -- and it's time for me to put some goodwill back into the system. It seems kinda difficult to find a place these days...
**If you're looking for a local to show you around the city, I wouldn't be a good fit. If you're looking to meet up, stay for a few nights, share and connect, then it could be a good fit!
*** Please read the "my home" section and include a note about what you would like to teach/learn/share if you send a couch request.
During and after high school, I spent some time wwoofing in Hawaii and New Zealand where I was introduced to CS.
During college, I studied film, political theory, and urban studies. Then I worked for a moment in Istanbul and Berlin before moving along to make a documentary on an ecological restoration project in Haiti: "One day, everything will be free"
These days, I operate an urban farm out of a greenhouse in Phoenix, AZ.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
When I've had an apartment, I've been happy to host people in New York and in Istanbul. Now I'm in Berlin and happy to host couchsurfers in this lovely city!
Over the past few years I've hosted, stayed on a few couches, and met up for drinks with many many interesting people. All good experiences!
