Currently settling into my apartment in Providence, RI.
My name is Broo (br-EW)
Uber low-maintenance person. Even-keeled. I can get along with mostly anyone. Completely content to travel alone or with a small(ish) group.
I enjoy spending the night out in a new city, just walking or biking around. Cycling is the best way to see it! A truer night owl has n'er been born.
I always stop in at a good bakery.
Naps in the park make up for the sleep I miss at night.
Frisbees are a hoot.
Love..... animals of most persuasions
Hold the pulp, please
I speak in prose but think in poetry
I know so little.

I love me a good podcast. If you're curious about Providence's seedy past, check out Season 1 of Crimetown. I enjoy the Dear Sugars podcast by Cheryl Strayed and Steve Ulman -- all about relationships. So good!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I surfed a chalet in the village of Dormillouse, high in the French Alps --no electricity, no pollution, no cares. Riding horses without saddles, making meals from the garden, baking wild cherry pie over an open flame, bathing in sun-warmed water and living inside an Ansel Adams photograph for 4 days
(merci, Charlotte & Pirouette le Chat)
Teach, Learn, Share
I will happily teach you how to make croissants ( if you have 24 hours free), or some basic origami, or a few guitar chords ( although, in truth, I could use a lot of help myself). French phrases/pronunciation. If you have patience, I can teach you to slackline, too!
I love working with my hands, so put me to work in the kitchen, fixing things around the house/yard. I'm always looking to add to my lexicon of skills.
Share your music with me!
What I Can Share with Hosts
If you're cool with strangers rummaging through your cupboards, I'm a pretty decent cook. A pretty solid baker. I enjoy sharing those skills, but also appreciate sharing some good beers or wine.
Countries I’ve Visited
