About Me

I love full moons behind tree branches, funk flute, vanilla beans, campfires, language, swimming, and podcasts about mycelia and trees.

I work these days as a videographer/associate doc film producer around the Bay Area and California. I film and edit short web videos, supporting non-profit work, environmental conferences, campaigns, direct actions, and more. I'm based in a vibrant, co-operative eco-village in North Oakland. Check us out, we host lots of fun and educational events and workshops! or @placeoakland on Facebook

Why I’m on Couchsurfing was my boulevard to comfort and collaboration when I moved to Europe. It introduced me to rad people, conversation, adventure, play, cities, bedrooms, and some of the most meaningful music of my life (my bands!).


Hilarious bike rides, rockin' tin whistle solos, tasty dinners, music jams, city treasure hunts, wet tent festivals, and a mix of more backgrounds and languages than I can count on my fingers ... all leading to good friends, rich memories, newly-collected wisdoms, and wanting more!


Philosophical novels, profound one-liners, going to shows, making videos, dancing, singing, long walks on the beach and through the woods, photography, meeting new people, and sitting in warm cafes to ponder and write.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Nestled at night in the dunes on a shore of an island off the coast of The Netherlands, watching little lights dancing around the sands to soundscapes, with live wave crashes and bird calls, drinking Jägermeister.
