Cultivation. Confrontation. Context.
I've lived in the Ann Arbor area all my life. Went to school in Ypsilanti to study History and Anthropology. Dabbled in drawing, photography, and music too. Most of my free time these days is devoted to the Ann Arbor Derby Dimes.
I'm always attempting to help people and leave the world a little better than I found it.
Try everything every so often. Palates change.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm very busy these days and am unable to host. But I do love the region and would like to help you how I might. Even if it's just to tell you where to connect with your interests. I'm a springboard!
I've gone to some local meet-ups and have made some friends. Other than that I've just sought out the same sort of information I've offered to provide. It's been very useful, thanks CSers!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The Kunsthause in Berlin was pretty neat. It was nice to see a group of people coming together for something they all care about.
Teach, Learn, Share
People seem to come to me when they have a thing they want to do, but they don't know how to do it. I have a good eye for critique and can be decent with constructive criticism. I'm alright at trouble shooting and problem solving.
I'd like to spend more time outdoors, learning about camping, climbing, spelunking, survival skills, navigation and the like.
