About Me


Living and studying in Lyon, France!


I perform tasks with diligence and very seldom complain. I hate filling out profile information. I applied for a position with the Men in Black, but they turned me down because I was "overqualified." I maintain eye contact with myself while brushing my teeth. I won thirteen gold medals for Bolivia in waterboarding. I perspire Nutella. It is actually an off-brand, so it retails for about three dollars and ninety-nine cents. There is a higher demand for me in the winter. If I were to vote I'd say Eric B for president. I can appear in others' dreams. Few realize this, but I am an avid puffin taxidermist. I can rearrange my face at will and my bones are jelly fish. Time is an illusion and crab-walking sideways is an effective means of deviating from your liquid spear.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now just surfing until I can find a place to live that is suitable for hosting other surfers.


Food, pizza, hamburgers, french fries, breakfast foods, sandwiches, pies, cakes, pastries, cookies, coffee, tea, candy, licorice, noodles, burritos, tacos, ice cream, custard, pudding, gelato, etc.

I enjoy writing fiction, reading, drinking coffee or tea, beatboxing and writing rap lyrics.

Music, Movies, and Books

This would be a good conversation starter.

Great bands/artists: Crocodiles, Slow Magic, Pallbearer, Kendrick Lamar, Shlohmo

Some fantastic movies I have recently seen are La Dolce Vita and Amarcord. I enjoy the work of Wes Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, Ridley Scott, Frederico Fellini, the Coen Brothers, Michel Gondry, David Lynch, Woody Allen, Quentin Tarantino, and others.

Books I've recently read and loved: Oblivion by David Foster Wallace, Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters by J.D. Salinger, The Invention of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares, and The Road by Cormac McCarthy.
