To meet new people and visit exciting new places
I'm a Ph.D. student in education, working on making schools more democratic for students. I love to travel and meet new people. I used to teach high school and love tea and beer, and trying new foods and new experiences. I love to read, am spiritual, philosophically an anarchist. I enjoy history, political theory, movies, hiking. I love the ocean, and snowshoeing, and many other things.
In the end life is either a tragedy or a comedy, and I prefer the latter. So laugh it up.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm new to this, so I haven't participated at all. I'm excited to start using it. If it's a positive experience I think I'd like to open up my couch as well. We shall see.
I'm very interested in issues of sustainability and how we can live together in ways that are more cooperative and supportive than antagonistic and competitive. I have an interest in shamanism and meditation as well, which are an important. if small, part of my life. Obviously, I have a passion for travel, and enjoy writing and reading as well.
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: I Heart Huckabees, Star Wars, LoTR, Old Boy, When Harry Met Sally, Tombstone, Old School, etc.
Books: Happiness by Will Ferguson, The Idiot by Dostoevsky, In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson, Frankenstein, and many many others.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Ummm...Well, I hiked up on Franz Josef glacier in New Zealand, which was spectacular.
Teach, Learn, Share
Geography and travel experience, spirituality, history, education and philosophy are some of the things that I may be able to teach you a little about. Hopefully you can teach me a little about culture, about different attitudes, to see the world through the eyes of somebody who is connected to the place. To learn about sustainability and different ways of being and living.
