About Me

CURRENT MISSION

take it all in and then let go of it

ABOUT ME

I am constantly moving back and forth between urban and rural environments. My earliest memories take place on the family farm where i grew up and i still take just as much pleasure digging in the dirt now as i did then. I love rural environments because i like to live simply, i like doing things myself from scratch. But i also feel drawn to cities - to museums, to street art, to libraries,to colliding cultures and ideas.

PHILOSOPHY

It is in your self-interest to find a way to be tender.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Rather than staying in a hostel and just wandering around main streets, Couchsurfing brings you into the orbit of interesting, friendly folks who give you a whole new view of a city.

The best way to travel!

Interests

planting seeds and compost in all its forms, environmental activism, cooperatives, women's and peasant movements.

i like folk art, insects, bicycles, treehouses, bee hives, frozen eyelashes in wintertime, bonfires, sewing, board games, mountains, the ocean, experimenting and triumphing, experimenting and trying again.

Music, Movies & Books

Books: Roald Dahl, Tolstoy, David Mitchell, Vonnegut,
Music: Joanna Newsom, Clap your hands say yeah, Islands, Bjork, Wolf Parade, Alanadale, The Books, Akron/Family, Bill Callahan, The Mountain Goats

One Amazing Thing I've Done

All manner of food harvesting and preservation: from farms to boats to dumpsters. I like to eat almost as much as i love a good adventure.

Teach, Learn, Share

i can teach fermenting, sprouting, canning and many other food related things. i know some things about fishing, raising animals, carpentry, butchery, bikes, herbal medicine, DIY printing/self publishing, etc.

I want to learn more herbal remedies, languages - nepali in particular, agricultural skills, beekeeping, bicycle powered machines, handicrafts, graffiti, etc.

Countries I've Visited

Germany, Hungary, India, Nepal, Scotland, United Kingdom, United States
