Music, Movies, and Books

Music: balkan, independent hip hop, folk, traveling hymns, Latin American pop hits, kirtan... Movies: documentaries, dark humor, foreign films. Books: poetry anthologies, spirituality anthropology, sociology, radical politics, theory, memoirs, oral histories.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've hitchhiked solo through 45 US States & 12 countries.

Teach, Learn, Share

Everyone has skills & knowledge to exchange! I'm into talking about current events, relationships, the sacred & useful information for self-sufficient living...I also teach around sexuality & intimacy, teach yoga, practice massage & bodywork, bake, hulahoop...lots of random things I'd love to share.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share life experiences, an insight only my mind can give, cleaning of your space, help with groceries and making food, and probably other things that would be revealed together. I'm an independent person who navigates a lot solo, but I am also not interested in strictly crashing on a couch with no exchange. I like to think I am a no pressure kind of guest!
