About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Wander. Discover. Learn. Connect.

ABOUT ME

word association: bicycles, coffee shops, old friends, nursing, street art, new orleans, public health, altruism, post cards, making community, rowing, travel, story-swapping, new friends, predictable cheesy horror films, student, irrational, efficient, youthful, interested, critical listener, responsible, gay, athletic.

PHILOSOPHY

Practice empathy. Respect nature. Love someone. Touch others and allow yourself to be touched by others, break down your walls. Don't give crappy hugs - no bro pats. Everyone is entitled to basic human rights. Above all else, LAUGH, laugh often, and laugh loudly.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

A good conversation is a great place to start. Love learning from other people and discussing things that interest them. In the past I've been fortunate enough to have some really great guests that I'm sure will turn out to still be around in the years to come, but for now I can mostly only offer my services as a tour guide and dinner buddy.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted loads of people prior to my current apartment, surfed Europe, India, S. Korea, and S. Africa now back to hosting for a while when I can.

Interests

The fun stuff: good people, conversation, a great cup of coffee, interesting books, life experiences, people watching, random sayings, radical faeries.

The serious stuff: social structure, power dynamics, cultural identity, social engineering, mass media [manipulation], public policy, human behavior, behavior change, rights of the child, social determinants of health

Music, Movies, and Books

What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Into the Wild, Closer, Shame, Shortbus, Ender's Game.

horror, sci-fi, chick flicks, comedy, action/adventure ... as long as it's a good movie and/or has sufficient enough explosions and pretty pictures to keep me entertained.
