About Me


meet people, learn about the world


I'm not a writer--I just drink a lot about it.


HAD we but world enough, and time,
This coyness, Lady, were no crime . . .
But at my back I always hear
Time's wingèd chariot hurrying near;
And yonder all before us lie
Deserts of vast eternity. . . .
Thus, though we cannot make our sun
Stand still, yet we will make him run.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting! And going to events. I also talk up couchsurfing to pretty much everyone I meet.


Hosting and now traveling-- I couchsurfed in Budapest and Prague, and I'm hosting a steady stream of visitors to Istanbul!

If you'd like to stay with me, please don't send a message! Use the couchsurfing request option thing!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

If you replace "amazing" with "amazed I was stupid enough to do this": get in the back seat of a strange car with a strange man and then immediately fall asleep.

More traditional interpretation of amazing--the night hike up Mt. Massive in Colorado and subsequent sunrise was pretty epic.
