About Me


Creating spring magic.


I am a pilot, a poet, a teacher, a cross-country skier, and an adventurer. I love hiking, adventuring, playing games like Carcassonne and Dominion, and connecting genuinely with people like you. I tend not to be excited about things like drinking, drugs, television, and popular culture.


I believe in truth, action, and adventure.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I offer space for travelers, and I look forward to staying with you on my next adventure. I also do my best to coordinate others' efforts and answer questions.


*Lots* of hosting, a little bit of surfing.


Flying, hiking, backpacking, travel, wilderness, cooking, Alaska, tea, haiku, sustainability, massage, generosity, contra dancing.

Music, Movies & Books

These books are rich in truth about what it means to be human: Shantaram, by Gregory David Roberts Endurance, about the Shackleton expedition North to the Night, by Alvah Simon

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Learning to fly. Visiting a village in India that had never before seen a foreigner. The Alaska Highway in winter. Being licked by a tiger.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you the wilderness, possibly take you flying, offer Pacific Northwest transit/travel tips, and show you how to make an ultra-lightweight portable stove out of used beverage cans... and I'd love to learn anything that you're passionate about and willing to teach!
