Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By being myself and doing what I can to meet all of you. Hosting when I can.


Got to know some couchsurfers at BurningMan. Ive hosted some great people, and am now travelling. It's great so far!


connections, hoppy beer, street-level interaction, spontaneous exchange, getting to know my neighbourhood, potlucks, local food, dance parties, bike rides, vegetarian cooking, indie music.

Music, Movies, and Books

indie music: talking heads, destroyer, Beirut, Cave Singers, Keren Ann, etc.
Bjork, Pixies, Flaming lips, Modest Mouse, Hannah Georgas, Wintermitts
(I dont' watch many movies but when I do I tend towards quirky indie movies)
books about bike touring (especially by women such as Anik See and Dervla Murphy), cities (I'm fascinated by folks like Jane Jacobs, Lynch, Gehl), magazines, blogs.... there's so much out there!
