About Me

*Unfortunately I can only host campers due to my living arrangement at the moment, I do have a lovely backyard and firepit though! You will generally have access to my house *

What I think my friends would say about me: I love food. I have a silly sense of humor, sometimes dark, often weird, and generally I don't take life too seriously. And maybe that I can be nerdy and/or quiet sometimes...not necessarily because I'm antisocial, but more because I have a wandering mind. But secretly I'm a little antisocial :)

Otherwise, I like to see new things and stay active, but a day spent playing backgammon and cooking is by all means a perfect day.

I left Jackson, Wyoming (maybe the most majestically beautiful place in the U.S.) in April 2012 to go explore the world while volunteering on farms in exchange for room and board. I moved to Los Angeles about a year ago to finally pursue performance-type stuff (comedy, singing, acting, whatever) and surprisingly I'm enjoying it quite a bit. It helps that I have a backyard out here and that most of the time there are dogs at my house since I'm a dogsitter.

PHILOSOPHY

"The idea is to remain in a state of constant departure while always arriving"

"happiness is a dog sunning itself on a rock. We're not put on this earth to be happy. We're here to experience great things"

(happiness doesn't hurt, though)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When hosting or surfing I always try to cook a meal or share some good drinks together ...giving back counts, and I do appreciate when guests apply this rule to themselves:)

I better mention that I am a pretty hands-off host, even when I am at home with you, so if you come I hope you're happy to be your own entertainment and tour guide——no offense!

Interests

you might've guessed that I love cooking (and most things food-related), but also reading, yoga, hiking, skiing, dancing (poorly), painting my face, painting your face, traveling, singing/music, being with animals, board games, card games, outer space, sustainability, supporting local...the list goes on...

Music, Movies & Books

books: catch-22, a confederacy of dunces, ishmael, LOTR, the unbearable lightness of being, the awakening, the fountainhead, lolita, time's arrow, tom robbins, born to run, barbara kingslover, catcher in the rye, the monkeywrench gang, nada, harry potter, ender's game, beatrice & virgil, etcccc
movies: royal tennanbaums, lion king, waking life, fantastic planet, baraka...
music: ELO, Rat Pack guys, 50s, old jazz, blues, old standards, Ratatat, Little Dragon, Talking Heads, Modest Mouse, David Bowie, Radiohead, the Boss, LCD Sounsystem, Hot Chip, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Alabama Shakes, Tame Impala, Jason Isbell, Wilco, dance music, M83, Velvet Underground, Philip Glass, Queen, Sufjan, Yeahyeahyeahs, Arcade Fire...so very very much more. Just don't give me new country and gangsta rap.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

all-night shaman experience in the Amazon?

Teach, Learn, Share

I think that everybody has something to teach, but sometimes it takes a while to figure out just what it is.

As for me, if I have anything to teach I'll modestly say that it probably would have to do mostly with good food or traveling.

I'd also love to practice Spanish, and my very beginner-level Italian!

What I Can Share With Hosts

A meal! Drinks! Improv knowledge! An ear (metaphorically)!
