About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meeting genuine people!

ABOUT ME

**UPDATE** May 2015

I'm back in AZ but no couch to host as I'm presently squatting with a friend. Looking forward to meeting new people in my down time!

I have a small dog (Sweetpea) who is VERY friendly. If you are allergic to animals, please take this into consideration before requesting a couch.**I'm fun loving and easy going. I've been told I've got guts because I'm fearless to life.**I step outside of my boundaries on a regular basis. How else do you learn who you are and experience new things? **I enjoy company but I've been known to hermit from time to time. **I dream daily and never seem to know where life will take me next. Forever evolving.**I'm a planner even though I've learned that planning doesn't always get you where you expect to go. This is where resiliency comes into play. I bounce back hard and fast!**I have a favortie spoon. I've used it since I was little and I would cry if I ever lost it. Yes. Over a spoon.**I don't like fingers between my toes but I can "hold hands" with my feet.**I talk to myself when I study.**I cut my oranges. If I don't have a knife I ask someone else to peel it. If I'm alone, the orange lives another day.**The TP MUST go over, not under!**I love cream cheese. I will eat it by itself. With my spoon.**I'm a geek about history. You wouldn't like my Netflix que.**I can lick my elbow. Try it, I dare you.**Make me laugh hard enough and I snort. Guaranteed.**Consider yourself honored if you invoke the snort.**Other than laughter, Velcro is my favorite sound.**I love to write. I've kept a journal since I was nine.**I have dimples in my shoulders.If there was one thing about me that would surprise 99% of the people I meet, it would be that I'm ¼ Native American and was raised with a deeply traditional NA upbringing.

PHILOSOPHY

Why not?

Discomfort is my comfort zone

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first experience with CS solidified my return! Jean-Marc is the epitome of what I want to be as a CS host (thank you--and if you go to London, surf in Putney!). Since then I've had mediocre experiences, but it doesn't diminish the idea of the site; as a host I hope to be the example of what I want in a host. I'm committed to the idea of "one new thing a day" and am forever expanding my knowledge of the region.

Interests

learning, traveling, reading, history, socializing, food (esp cheese), music, rock climbing, investing, friendship, wine, and shoes...definitely shoes.

Music, Movies & Books

Most movies, including documentaries. --Shawshank Redemption --Slumdog Millionaire --The King's Speech --Atonement --Taken --Stardust --The Cove

All music (except Blink 182 and the like); especially the following: --Adele --Porter Robinson --James Morrison --Duffy --Calvin Harris --The Roots --Michael Franti --Lenka --A Fine Frenzy --Mozella --Says You --Deadmau5 --Lykke Li --Oh Land --La Roux --Kate Nash --Lily Allen --Eric Morillo --Pretty Lights --NERVO --CRo --Kilo Kish --Rita Ora --Knife Party --Laidback Luke

I recently finished reading "Eating Animals" and "Mindless Eating." I'm currently reading "The Duchess" and "The Red Queen."

Historical fiction books pique my interest the most.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how welcoming people are when they find out you're new to the area. There's nothing better than people stepping outside of themselves and offerring their hospitality.

**Skydiving **Touching Michael Franti **Dolphins nudging me for a snuggle **Cliff diving in Cabo **Feeding sharks and manta rays **Standing in the center of 1000s of years of history at The Tower of London **Scotch tasting in Edinburgh **Walking through the early morning streets of misty Praha; ephemeral **Finding myself in the midst of a Rave at 6am in London; kept dancing until the first Tube ran **Collecting recyclables from ankle deep mud at ACL 2009 **Star gazing through the "window" of the Pantheon

Plus the everyday events that put a smile on my face: **Birthdays with friends **Giggle fits with the girls **Cuddling with my pup **Phone calls just to say "hello"
