About Me

I am a writer, a filmmaker and a gardener. I am an English and Spanish speaker who wishes to practice both (as well as German, Portuguese, and now, Khmer.) I hope to help you in some way and share some stories, writings, or movies with you.

Are you a media maker or organic foodworker in Southern California? Please contact me.

I have returned from Nepal and Mexico, and am writing of shelterlessness, prisons, mosquitoes, and kites (not necessarily at once.) Peace, non-violence, and concrete music are my chicory root and carob.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Am interested in meeting people. I wish to study, learn, and write.


Coffee, dandelion, mugwort, lavender
