About Me


No one ever told me... this changes everything!


I'm ... uh, different. Not bad different, good different! I'm more on the quiet side, but once I feel comfortable I can open up, and then you'll get to experience all the awesomeness*.

*My totally unbiased opinion.


Be like a pineapple.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm still saving money to travel myself, but right now I'm looking to host as many different people as possible.


I'm new. Hopefully I can fill this section out soon :)

Music, Movies, and Books

movies: I especially enjoy the wacky/zany/surreal. No particular favorites, but I do get get bored with the mainstream.

Music: Right now I have no idea. I'm experimenting. I've found some really weird stuff. Not sure if I enjoy all of it though. Otherwise: Sonic Youth, Pixies, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Crystal Castles, ... I don't know, so many (I suck at listing things).

Books: Catch 22 is my favourite :). I'm an avid (but slow) reader. Recently I've gotten into ASOIAF, ie. A Game of Thrones. Otherwise: Gravity's Rainbow (whatever it was about), The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test, Sometimes a Great Notion, um, lots more...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once saw this guy backflip off a bank next to the side of a highway. It was pretty impressive. My friend chucked him a pack of cigarettes as we drove past (I don't smoke myself).

Teach, Learn, Share

Professionally I'm an embedded systems engineer, specializing in cryptography - so I could share some of that (programming, math, crypto) I suppose.

Otherwise I can play guitar - not brilliantly, but I'm not too bad - and can teach anyone who wants to learn.
