Join Couchsurfing to see Murphy’s full profile.
To enjoy life, and meet interesting new people.
We only live this life once. I do my best to enjoy the little things. I am often traveling out of town, and never know too far in advance where I'll be, so scheduling more than 5 days in advance is usually not possible for me. I am very social, and connected into many different parts of the San Francisco subculture. In a way I could be considered a yogi, a cuddler, a dancer, a body worker, a rope artist and shibari practitioner, a fetish photographer, a community organizer, but am always evolving so a single definition might be misleading. I'm both traditional, and non-traditional or non-vanilla, as well as poly.
Contentment is found through compassion and love which is a byproduct of spirituality and strength of character.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I started in 2007 in Poland meeting other Couch Surfers. Then I begun hosting and staying with a few Couch Surfers through out the years. I've hosted large parties (the most was 4 in my little studio) and made wonderful lifelong friendships here. Today I am traveling the world again, Iceland, Nepal, Cambodia, New Zealand, & Hawaii. I'm hoping to forge some friendships, stories, and meet amazing new people along the way.
Met amazing people in many countries during my travels, and have hosted a few people here in the states as well as couch surfed with a few people here in the states.
