About Me


expand and contract


i'm a nerd for narrative, and how it builds the self, and how that builds our world. i'm always trying to understand the elements of an institution that make it replicable. i'm also a nerd for just about everything else as well, from food to theory to dancing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't often had a residence where I could host surfers for the past couple years, though the exceptions to this have been great. Most of my experience with couchsurfing was in the Netherlands but I met so many amazing people that now I look forward to meeting folks here in north america through CS.


Great! Nothing but good times. From an amazing Christmas party with other travelers in Amsterdam to being rescued from a jam by brothers of host's boyfriends to learning my favorite card games to serious late night arguments CS has been nothing but fun and enlightening so far.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

went cave diving at Hana with a guy we'd just met and one flashlight. He'd dive into a hole and swim away, we'd count to 30 dive in and swim towards the light. at the end of a few of these dark dives the caves opened onto a 20 foot drop into a crystal clear bowl of water surrounded by rainforest foliage.
