About Me

CURRENT MISSION

consume a winter's worth of citrus

ABOUT ME

I know our moms always said not to, but talking to strangers is one of my favorite things. Always something new to learn. Or, if it's in a different language, you can have a whole conversation without really understanding anything except that you want to be talking to each other. I like exploring the outdoors, but I also like film and sitting down with a book on a rainy day- or even a sunny one sometimes. I like being self-reliant, but I also like having community.

PHILOSOPHY

'every hundred feet the world changes'

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It's been sweet. When I get to a stopping place for a while I will try to repay all the fun times.

Interests

Producing and consuming food. Making music. Art in any form. Hiking in the woods and the desert. Biking. Swimming in all bodies of water, but I prefer rivers. Plants. Pollinators. Board games. Pigeons. Tea and coffee and hot chocolate. Whiskey and gin and beer. Teach me new things, talk to me about something I know nothing about, get excited about all the neat projects happening or commiserate with me about the state of the world.

Music, Movies & Books

So many. Too hard to choose.
RIGHT NOW
I am reading 2666
The last movie I saw was Jiro Dreams of Sushi
I have been listening to Rodriguez, Andrew Bird and Crystal Castles.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I once picked up a New York City pigeon. Most people think they're dirty, which is true. But they are also misunderstood.
