About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Never enough soup.

ABOUT ME

I'm a young farm worker. I work for a small vegetable CSA farm on MD's Eastern Shore. I also babysit, and have a tendency to only half finish puzzles.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

These days, I'm beginning to use couchsurfing more in my explorations of farms I might work at in the coming growing season. And! Hopefully as a way to find friendly faces and warm places to sleep on an upcoming wintertime cross-country roadtrip.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My couchsurfing nostalgia: I found out about couchsurfing with my 4 roommates (including couchsurfer members Sami Feld and Nicole Grafilo) when we lived Brooklyn. We spent a lot of time together, in the house, at the bar below our apartment, and anywhere anyone made us brunch. Some highlights: we hosted a houseful of German boys who left us a personalized set of translated phrases and a drawer full of gummibaerchen, we helped some nervous college students blow off steam before big job interviews, and we enlisted couchsurfers to make sooo many dumplings!!

Then, I moved away from Brooklyn to work for a farm in the Hudson Valley, where my roommates and I didn't use couchsurfing the website but often found our house full of friends of friends and an extended network of farmy and not so farmy folks. I miss it and hope to have an equally inviting couch for surfers again soon wherever I land next.

I read on another couchsurfer profile that "couchsurfing is a radical political act," and I want to pass on that message too. It's a piece of how I want community to work.

Music, Movies, and Books

(Fall 2011) I am reading: Dirt by David R. Montgomery, a book about the erosion of cultivated topsoil in different civilizations throughout history. The last movie I watched was Labyrinth, oh geez. I'm listening to Big Tree right now.

Last time I updated my profile (fall 2010), I was reading: Blue Highways by William Least Half Moon. I had just finished watching the fourth season of Mad Men. I (was) listening to the Devil Makes Three while I (wrote) this.
