About Me


To ground spontaneity.


Seek first to understand, then to be understood.

Respecting life without taking it too seriously.

"Conforming a goal to the individual, not conforming the individual to a goal"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf when traveling, and I pick up hitchhikers! Offering a ride vs. a couch isn't all that different, eh?


A number of memorable experiences and friends made during travel [See references!]


Being outside, yoga, playing sports, trying new foods & cultures & activities, cooking, wandering/exploring to find gems, taking pictures, etc. etc. being under water, being in & around the ocean..amateur uke / guitar / snowboarder / surfer

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lucid dreaming

Teach, Learn, Share

-A day without looking at a clock
-Attempting an elaborate meal
-Playing music
-Being crafty, weeeeird, energetic..
-Ideas & philosophies...
-A good beer...

Teach me: anything you love! I like learning from people's passions or quirks

I can teach you how to play basic chords on the uke, opening the doors to pretty much any song on the radio and beyond.
