About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Aggressively pursuing happiness

ABOUT ME

I love Iceland and I want to go back.

I celebrate the Rule I fulfill the Pact I complete the Run I set the Trap I break into The Projects

I'm on a continuous search for happiness. This generally involves adventure and/or physical activity and/or a greased up watermelon in a lake. I run a lot. I also run. Sometimes I bike or spend time in the water trying not to drown. One day I'll be good enough to call this act swimming, but not yet.

I also like to spin poi! (Although I haven't been practicing much recently)

PHILOSOPHY

I tend to go in one of two directions in life: skyward and pieward.

Life motto #1: Everything always works out Life motto #2: It's better to die trying than to try dying

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I surf when I travel, and host people when I don't. I try to make it to the CS meetups when I can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first big CS experience was Skyward April Adventures - which was exactly what it sounds like, with some fire added. Literally.

Couchsurfing made my fantastic trip in Iceland even more fantastic!

I've also hosted some number of surfers, and have been to a number of local CS events.

Interests

Greased up watermelons, running, cycling, running, appreciating absurdity, adventure!

Music, Movies & Books

The number of books I've read (all the way through) for pleasure can probably be counted on one hand. Maybe even one finger. Not exaggerating. Seriously.

Music - mostly alternative rock (or punk rock, I don't know what the difference is), and a lot of video game remixes which I think would be classified as electronic music.

Also, Nightwish.

Movies.... let's just say I'm easy to impress.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I spent three months of 2013 in Iceland, and those are the best three months of my life that I can remember. I went skinny dipping within the arctic circle, and just about everything I saw in Iceland was amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

"It's impossible" said pride. "It's risky" said experience. "It's pointless" said reason. "Give it a try"... whispered the heart.

Countries I've Visited

Costa Rica, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Philippines

Countries I've Lived In
