Laissez les Bon temps rouler!
A traveler. A chatter. A happa. A Californian. A music maker, photo taker, dancer to a good beat. An eager listener of stories. A lover of people, all kinds. A biker and walker. A reader. A gardener. A puppy dog enthusiast. A yoga do-er. A connoisseur of the noble potato chip (sea salt).
Balance- too much of anything is a bad thing.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I live in a share house of 7 people with no couch to speak of, so I am still only a surfer. But one day I will have the comfiest couch, or tent, or camper, to pay it back.
I've met amazing people in Oregon, Washington, New Zealand and Ecuador through this site. I think it's one of the best parts of the internet.
It's probably easier to say what I'm not interested in- cruelty, bigotry, willful ignorance, hate and apathy. Everything else is all gravy.

Music: Punch Brothers, Radiohead, Bjork, Prince, Jackson 5, Gustavo Dudamel, Steve Reich and Philip Glass, Bon Iver, St. Vincent, Tune Yards, Colin Stetson, Nirvana, Gillian Welch, Preservation Hall, to name a few. I love that I get to spend the rest of my life discovering new music to inspire me!

Teach, Learn, Share
I'm a decent cook, and can probably find you a new band or book to get excited about! Yoga for injuries you might have?
