About Me

I am an American.
I live in Prague.
Those are the obvious ones.

I like interesting conversation, good people, and Pilsner.
Prague's beer gardens bring all three together marvelously.
That more or less explains why i live here.

Žižkov is my neighborhood.
It has great parks, bars, cafes, coffeeshops, old cinemas, and a tower with alien babies climbing up it.
And its a world away from the throngs of tourists that fill the streets of Staroměstská.

Prague is a major European Tourism Capital.
Accordingly, In the summer months my inbox is flooded with copy-and-paste requests.
If theres something in your message that implies you read my profile, its much more likely that i could host you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Its an investment in the social capital of an area.
It stops travel from exclusively being a luxury of the rich.
It introduces you to people whom you would never meet otherwise.

Basically, simple hospitality feels right.

Couchsurfing helps me do all of this, while filtering out the weirdos.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I grew up on the foothills of the Los Padres National Forrest.

On a new moon, when you're up past Rose Valley, the Badlands, and Shadyac.

Deep in the mountains.

Far from the Halogen glow of southern California...
The stars shimmer with such intensity.
As shooting stars whiz past, a satellites meander by...
For a brief moment you lose yourself to the vastness of the universe.

As you the sun rises and you drift back to earth and each one of those stars dissolves into a vibrant shade of pink.
