About Me


Find friends, food, and community everywhere I go


I love to cook, make photographs, play lousy guitar w/ harmonica, and talk about poems in Spanish which I only partly understand.
Before this travel adventure I lived in a food coop/ intentional community in NYC with a rotating cast of 14 characters. I'm easy going, don´t need much privacy, and will definitely cook for/with you if we couchsurf together.


it begins in delight and ends in wisdom - robert frost

"the photographer has to be there," so that's where I'm going.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Looks like I'll be in Argentina for a while, and travel advice is always appreciated. Message me if you're in town and we'll find something interesting together. I'm interested in finding eco and artist communities off the beaten track.


A few glorious weeks through eastern Europe with SRL. Done lots of informal couchsurfing type adventuring, and definitely feel more comfortable when there's someone around to eat my cookin.
Later I couchsurfed through Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia, which was superb.
