About Me


Consulting in education, science and open culture. Making the world a bit better on my trip.


I'm no longer using CouchSurfing after it was taken over and turned into a for-profit company. It lost all the community elements that got me here.

I like to understand people, and why we do all the crazy things we do. I like information and how it flows and changes our context. I like sociology and politics and culture. I can seem quiet and intense when I'm feeling shy but I also have a very outgoing side. I have a complex and somewhat unique worldview. I'm still learning to laugh at myself and take my world less seriously.


Let your capital be simplicity and contentment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a few times. Planning trips in the future. I've attended some awesome group gathers here in SF and met some fantastic people.


Meeting 8 strangers celebrating on a Christmas day and had a great time.


3D shapes and spaces. How the subconscious drives individuals' behavior. Web page layouts. The upper corners of rooms. Why I sound so much different on tape than I think I do when I talk. Eating healthy foods and learning to cook for myself. My two kids.
