About Me


Learn to empower people through cultivating a culture of play and community.


I'm super open, I'd rather live my life generally trusting things, even if it gets me into trouble sometimes. Sometimes I start running out of the blue because I'm excited about where I'm going - can't help it! I get lost a lot, probably because I don't pay much attention to where I'm going. It's not because I don't care. I just have faith that I'll still get there somehow. Other than dancing & reading (the two things I do the most for fun), I wouldn't say I have any regular "hobbies", more like boundless flitting activities that repeat themselves every so often.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have not been on the website for some years. I used to host folks but then new roommates weren't down with couchsurfing. Hope to start hosting again soon, but in the mean time I'm available to hang out.


Hosting folks in Berkeley, have couchsurfed once in China and once in North Carolina.
