About Me


Mischief and employment in Asia.


Looking for fun and inspiration is a full time labor of love. I like to make people happy and chat about the stuff in life that makes you wanna tear your hair out it's so great.


It's more fun to be aware of your own delusions than to be ignorant of them. This opens the door for sweet, delicious self mockery.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once I was abducted and tazered by a group of friends upon returning from a trip. They duck taped my limbs together and put me in a van before taking me to a welcome home party.
