Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been surfing/hosting for many years. Was an ambassador for a bunch of them too. I started the Hayfire project on here (it's a good art group to join.)

I plan on surfing until my mind can no longer handle it.


The only thing that I charge when people come to my apartment is creativity. I have several functional typewriters, paint, sculpting material, friends with dark rooms, friends who do glass blowing, etc. etc.

This is not a demand, this is a preference - please contribute to the world of artistic expression via my apartment.



Poetry. Typewriters. Coffee. Whiskey. Books. Juggling. Magic Tricks. Art. Painting. Photography. Dancing. Etc.
