About Me


seeking sunshine in seattle

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couch surfing, for me, facilitates intimate moments--long dinners, evenings, city tours--spent with strangers.


good food, tea, coffee and beer, listening to new music, making conversation, playing tennis, hiking, skiing, reading, gardening, exploring and well...traveling!

Music, Movies, and Books

A few favs:

music -- Yeasayer, M. Ward, Bela Fleck, Belle and Sebastion, Tribe Called Quest, Beirut, Radiohead, Dave, Spoon, more.

movies -- Amelie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

books -- The Tin Drum, God of Small Things, Great Expectations, and anything F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you want to hang out in Seattle, I've done my research and can show you where the BEST coffee is served. Is that a talent? No, maybe not. But it is important.

Also, I can teach you to ski or play tennis, and I make especially beautiful paper snowflakes.
