About Me


To figure out what the hell "current mission" means.


Just wait for the book to come out. It'll be an easy read.


Couches not bombs!

(though, unlike my friend Dom who made the vid, I do often let couchsurfers wear my clothes).

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I make good pancakes. Sometimes I put banana slices in them.


Soft couches kill my back. Ouch.


Snowboarding, rock climbing, acroyoga, traveling, theatre, foreign languages, Burning Man, hellfire-free Christianity.

Music, Movies & Books

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, the Stone Roses and Gilgamesh are the first ones that come to mind. Just saw "Half Nelson" and it changed my life. "The Album Leaf" is some of the finest music I've heard in a while. This season's reading list includes "Germs, Guns and Steel" (Diamond), "The Omnivore's Dilemma" (Pollan), "The Irresistable Revolution" (Claiborne).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hiked to the top of Masada and watched the sunrise over the Dead Sea. On my birthday.

Teach, Learn, Share

We'll learn plenty from each other when meet. Enough with these vague and confusing profile questions. Now let's get off the damned internet and go change the world! Or at least have a little fun... ;)
