ABOUT ME

What I know about myself is that I am constantly changing and therefore whatever I write here cannot truly convey who I am, so rather than giving an explanation of who I am, I would rather just meet you instead! However in saying that I will give a brief description of the person that is writing these words at this moment and time.I participate in couch surfing to share unique experiences with others and to learn about different cultures and explore new ways of living.

Words that i would like to be described as being include curious, inquisitive, open minded, adventurous mindful, exploratory, loyal, fun, critically minded, loyal ect I desire to improve myself to the best of capacity, I was born in Los Angeles but have lived in Perth, Western Australia most of my life. Things I enjoy include but are not limited to spontaneous adventures, dancing, partying, laughing, reading, sitting quietly, observing, hikingI enjoy people that have a different perspective to me, can teach me anything, can open my mind, heart, can live in the moment and just relate to me in authentic and non judging manner. Particular subjects that interest me include Psychology (obviously), philosophy, specifically zen, buddhism, existentialism, Taoism and hinduism, religion (althougt I am not religious), conspiracy theories, innovative thought, history, self development spirituality. fantasy books and movies, surrealism and on and on and on.
