About Me


I am a writer/editor/journalist, and I intend to freelance as I travel throughout SE Asia beginning in Spring '09.


I live for experience, knowledge, relationships, not fortune or fame. I'm a rationalist, enjoy hiking and kayaking, and love a good beer.

I love all kinds of music, like to jam a little, love reading philosophy and non-fiction.


I'm a freethinker, rationalist. My worldview is naturalistic. I love meeting new people and sharing stories. There are very few things that don't perk my interest. Some of my favorite topics of discussion are philosophy/religion, politics, travel, writing, music, sports, the great outdoors, environmentalism, you name it. I am not easily bored.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm a total couch surfing virgin, but I hope, and expect, to have my cherry popped when I head off to SE Asia in Spring '09.
