About Me


Figure out what is going on, and why it's going on, having a good time, and enabling others to have a good time. And to learn more about music and how to play it.


Like many, I'm weird multifaceted, and constantly changing. I like being outside. I like good discussion and conversation. I love nature.


I don't believe in taking things to seriously, in the begative, dramatic sense. It is best to always find a way to be humble or humorous. I believe the unexamined life is not worth living. I am an advocate of personal responsibility, and love, though I cannot expect anyone to know what I mean by love, without good discussion/conversation, except that it is a great thing. I believe we have a responsibility to help others who are less fortunate. I believe that academic intelligence is often arbitrary, and usually a result of circumstance, not skill. Real intelligence is somewhat captured in the phrase "It's not what you do, but how and why you do it."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am open to someone chilling/staying at my place, though it is not very big, here in Lyon France, where I am studying for 5 months.


I am brand new, and very impressed and intrigued with this great site!


Music! Jammin! Playin, climbing on stuff, running around, talking to people. philosophy, people, nature. Art is sweet, there's so much good artwork and music in the world it's overwhelming.

Music, Movies, and Books

Dune is one of my favorite books, also The Teachings of Don Juan, and The Life of Pi are excellent. I'm bad at remembering movies...if I list one I'll feel like I need to list ten. :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
