About Me


Write a book…or something masochistic like that


I'm a coffee person. Cats over dogs. I stay up late. I like my beard. I ride bicycles. I enjoy myself a good brew. The period is a fantastic punctionation mark. I live in the moment, so it's difficult for me to bring to talk about myself in such broad strokes without thinking for a while.


A plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive—at least a little bit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm really just getting started, but I figure the best way to make your way in a new area is to do so with someone that lives there. I still don't know that much about New York (I just moved here), but I'd certainly be happy to play host, and share some adventures.


If someone has put time, and more importantly, thought into making something, I'd thoroughly like to experience it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I ran at the ancient stadium of Nemea.

I watched a tornado from about 30 yards away

I watched the moon rise over the Mediterranean

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to cook, I can make you a kickass late, or we could go out to the back yard and lightpaint!
