About Me


Run a successful gardening business and get as many people to grow their own food as possible! :)

Most currently: organize, collect, and transport donations for needed supplies at the Standing Rock camp.


I'm a lover of art, a maker of music, an eater of delicious foods... I am a peace maker, a gardener, and Nichiren Buddhist.


Start with Imagination... if you can dream it, it can happen :)

Everybody has their baggage, so try not to judge. Listen and speak to others with an open mind and heart and you might be surprised that you find we're all a lot more alike than we are taught to believe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used CS to travel around Central America in the winter of 09-10.

I unfortunately cannot host people right now, but if you're in town, I'll show you some fun spots!


Its been an awesome experience... I make sure to tell every good traveler I meet about this site.


Making music-- I love to sing, and collaborate with others-- I play piano and guitar. I am interested in experiencing new and different cultures and ways of life. I enjoy nature very much and cooking (and eating!) delicious food.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love comedy.
I also like 60s, drug, African, classical, spiritual, foreign... culture (any of this applies to movies, music or books)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had an amazing and fun road trip to California from Chicago with a few good friends of mine. The trip itself was kinda crazy and a little dangerous (driving through the Mojave Desert at 1 in the morning, after being up since 6am).

I've been to over half of the United States, and I truly think New Mexico is magical.

Central America in general is simply amazing and beautiful. I can't wait to go back. I lived and volunteered on a farm on Lake Atitlan for a month... unlimited avocados and coffee... mmmm
