About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Play as much as possible and never stop learning

ABOUT ME

I work in technical theater and When I'm not working I can generally be found rock climbing, backpacking, XC Skiing, Snowboarding or out on some long motorcycle (and hopefully soon bicycle) trip. I am spontaneous, and always willing to risk cutting my fingers off to make you curry at any hour. I can fix most things, sew after a fashion and make great coffee/breakfast potatoes. .

PHILOSOPHY

I live to learn, from everyone and everything. I am socially liberal, interested in anything that can help local communities and lifestyles work. I do the best I can and am not on any crusade to change the world. I absolutely love my career and life these days. I am interested in people that are driven towards goals and wary of those that seem to be constantly running away.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hosted a lot when I lived in Madison, WI and also have surfed many times while traveling solo and with my partner. I love meeting new people and learning from them.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I learned of couchsurfing while staying with a friend in Texas and have super enjoyed hosting many surfers in Madison, WI over the years as well as surfing myself and with a partner on several road trips. Recently I've surfed across the desert southwest including Austin, TX, Flagstaff, AZ, Moab, UT, Winter Park, CO and Leadville, CO.

Interests

Climbing, Backpacking, Kiting (yes, the things up in sky with strings on them!), AcroYoga, Yoga, Cooking, Reading, biking, XC Skiing, Snowboarding, and Motorcycles....the list goes on. I like to play outdoors and tinker with everything from bicycles to cars. Cross a bicycle, a bottle of wine shared over camp stove curry and you've got one cheerful kai.

Music, Movies, and Books

Neil Stephenson, Robert Pirsig, Most music depending on my mood. I don't have a TV so not much in the way of movies these days.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had a really wonderful walk from Maine to Georgia in 2009/2010 and watched Sunrise from a mountain-top every day for 45 days straight. I've sailed on the Pacific Ocean on a broken down Pirate Ship. I've eaten fish and crackers at 14,163'.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love sharing food and cooking. I can teach how to feed oneself outside a restaurant. I would love to learn how to teli-ski and kite-board.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to cook for my hosts, you can definitely expect a curry experiment while I'm you guest. I am also always open to helping with house projects, I'm fairly handy with basic electrical and plumbing. I love to explore and learn.

Countries I’ve Visited

France, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom
