About Me


Opening up and staying grounding at the same time! ...I like to float...


Im learning the subtle and gentle art of balance. Currently traveling across this beautiful Earth following the whispers of my awakening soul. I'm quacky at times and I have narcolepsy, if your curious don't be shy ask me about it. At times my energy can be confusing so again if you are wondering just ask, I'm honest and open even if what I end up saying is that I'm confused about something. I ponder and analyze, it's curiosity, I like to understand the exact aspect of my own and others thoughts, ideas, passions and how they interplay. I'm respectful and neat and love to help out while I'm surfing.


All was meant to be.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing so far.


Just starting out on this website, but have had plenty of couch surfers found by manifestation.
P.S. I do have plenty of references from house-sitting however useful that may be?


Breathing, hiking, adventure, exploring new spaces - inside and out, interacting with animals, raw food - especially yummy fresh juice, evolving, reading, dancing, keeping magic alive, co-ops, farmers markets, radical spaces, energy healing, massage, people-watching, mushrooms -shiitake is my favorite, biking, learning new things and meeting new people.
Noticing new things!
Trying currently to stay wholly present in all moments!

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: Fifth Sacred Thing, Right Use of Will, One Straw Revolution, Mycillium Running, Tao of Pooh, Ishmeal, Jitterbug Perfume (or any Robbins), Souls and Cells Remember,
Movies: The Green Beautiful, Harold and Maude, The Fountain, Ants, The Neverending Story,
Music: Russian Folk, Bluegrass, Experimental, Classical Guitar
... everchanging!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swam with manatees!

Teach, Learn, Share

I really would love to learn moving hands self defense, more native plant identification, shiatsu and other healing arts, new dances, any related skills for natural non-till farming techniques or bee-keeping and am curious about different spiritual paths and ways of relating.
I have a fair amount of knowledge concerning different gardening techniques, some native plant knowledge and herb knowledge and kundalini yoga. I have also built various structures including a chicken coop, a spring house, and various temporary shelters (many many teepees). I'm fairly versed in photography and can sew (hand, surger and standard machine) and crochet. I also worked at a vet clinic for six years so I have a lot of animal health knowledge. I can also read music and play clarinet.
