About Me


I'm taking time off from working on sailboats, to volunteer as a translator and general assistant for an NGO in Iquitos, Peru. While I'm here, I hope to take some time to make art, visit the rain forest, practice a bit of music, and meet some folks.


i'm a person, I like people, I like to explore.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed a lot, in the past for long chunks of time, but lately it's been more rare. I have hosted a little, but I haven't actually had my own place in... 3 years? So I hope to host some more if I can, in the future.


Wonderful! Couchsurfers are the friendliest people ever.


people, nature, sailing, music, art, books, everything

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: open-minded to all genres, from anywhere. I really like Ali Farka Toure, and Os Mutantes, and Talking Heads, and especially any music my friends make.
Movies: Only good ones.
Books: favorite authors: Italo Calvino, Nicholson Baker, David Foster Wallace, Jesse Ball, Sjon, and (guilty scifi pleasure) Kim Stanley Robinson.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sailing really close to humpback whales! So magical. Like being in the presence of otherworldly gods.

Teach, Learn, Share

I guess I can teach artsy stuff, practice languages, maybe cook together, or just do something we've never done before.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food, stories, books, art, anything!
