About Me

CURRENT MISSION

live and write

ABOUT ME

I'm a pretty quiet person. I write a lot, love to hike and explore outside, love to read. I enjoy chatting with fun people.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have helped out host Couchsurfers at Bosque Village for the last four years.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have hosted, but never been hosted (yet). It's been fun meeting people, especially the hosts that live here in Mexico.

I helped organize a CS event in 2008 for 50 couchsurfers. I also ran the kitchen for that event.

Interests

writing, reading, hiking, animals, good food and wine

Music, Movies & Books

I'm actually not that into music and often people think that's odd. I just can't relate to them based on what bands they like.

Movies; I like really terrible romantic comedies. But I rarely watch movies. I have been enjoying shows like Community, Big Bang Theory, House, Dexter, Breaking Bad...

Books-- I read a lot and have a varied taste.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The animals in the Ngorongoro crater... and that whole area... was fantastic. I was actually in Tanzania for a class, and on the last weekend they took us there for a fun thing. Was incredible. Here's the google images for the crater: http://bit.ly/Lmf4xg

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach some basic cooking skills. Especially for people interested in vegetarian food (I cook meat, too, but I'm a really good vegetarian cook).

This is a great concept. If you're in Mexico during Semana Santa, check out Cumbre Yah; a festival I help organize that operates with the same principle of learning/teaching: http://cumbreyah.com/
