About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to hunt the white whale.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in the American West, nestled in the crags of the Rocky Mountains just South of Yellowstone. Due to my interest in high-falutin' "learning" and "academia" I packed my suitcases, and, kissing the bison goodbye, I ran off to New York City, wide-eyed and bushy tailed. I've since lived in Washington State and Oxford, U.K., and currently live in Washington DC. I've spent the winters reading in dusty libraries, and the summers bumming about the West, living in tents, swimming in rivers, and flipping burgers.

PHILOSOPHY

a vivid memory justifies a rough experience.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Interests

making movies, writing novels, penning poems, playing games, juggling, and drinking. I like peculiar movies, books of the thick and frustrating variety, extensive board/card games, DIY body modification, poetry, philosophy, mathematics, all things imbibing, all things outdoors, persons of any variety, chess, mountaineering, tarot, mountain biking, rock climbing.
