Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It's been a long time since I was active on couchsurfing but I have hosted more couchsurfers in San Francisco than I have surfed, all of which were wonderful experiences.


being shown something new, political and social struggles, Tantra, poetry, practicing yoga, having big adventures, dancing, meditation, freeing all incarcerated brothers and sisters, making art, holistic medicine, rewriting history, bicycling, building community, energy work, laughing, walking, the esoteric, traveling and radical romance.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've hitchhiked solo through 42 US States & 10 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, play the washboard, 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 we'd reveal together.
