Join Couchsurfing to see James’s full profile.
A Canadian working in the USA. I don't have a couch to offer these days.
I like to hike, climb, camp, enjoy beer, whiskey and tequila, read fiction (horror and sci fi) and non-fiction (philosophy, political theory/history), and listen to music (metal, punk). I'm researching the socio/economic/political implications of the artificial intelligence (AI) industry.
I'm a low budget traveler. Except for the small fortunes I spend on food and drink.
Some friends and I recently bought a bit of rural land in Aragon, Spain. An ongoing project is to develop that.
I hope to make my way to central Asia soon.
