About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Do What You Want

ABOUT ME

I'm on my way to becoming a twenty-something with no idea what life is supposed to be good for.
I used to study social work, history, English literature and philosophy, and now I'm a professional busker. Thanks dad.
I'm generally introverted, but not shy or antisocial.
I don't eat animals. I want to go vegan, but I don't think I'll manage alone.
I'd be an Anarchosyndicalist if I actually had a job.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I tried to explain Couchsurfing to an English lady the other day, and when I was done, her first question was "But why would I WANT someone on my couch?"
That question had never before entered my mind.

So far, my experiences have been pretty cool, filled with kind people.

Interests

Pop culture, history, Jugger, languages, human beings, poetry, philosophy, music. Mostly this. Random order.

There's more to life than books, you know, but not much more.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing place I've ever been was probably Casa Robino in Amsterdam. May it live on in our hearts and minds.

The most amazing thing I've seen that comes to mind is being on the rooftops of Berlin and watching the sun rise, although I've now got a sunrise on the banks of the Rhine to hold up against that.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach beginners to play the guitar. Thom was right: Anyone can play guitar.

I want to learn how to build a good treehouse. If you know how to, get in touch. I'd also like to learn to play the banjo.
