About Me


Making bundts like your mouth wouldn't believe.


I'm useless at charades and can laugh at almost anything.


Everything sounds cooler when prefaced with "yo."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


These days I am looking to go to some of the local gatherings and meet some people! Maybe plan a road trip?


I've used my meager charm to surf on a couple of trips to Europe, and had guests when I had my own spot in Berkeley. Now I might go to some of the gatherings just to meet other folks


Bundt cakes, Kindle books, free things on the sidewalk, earrings

Music, Movies, and Books

I used to DJ at the college radio station, so I keep it eclectic. Folk, Pop, and blues are close to my heart, but I can sing to top 40 without shame in the car.

I like: Cody Chesnutt, Beirut, Andrew Bird, Etta James, Sufjan Stevens, Rufus Wainwright, Feist, Jolie Holland, Chet Baker, Adele, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Black Keys, Timber Timbre, Dead Man's Bones, Teddy Thompson, Sondre Lerche.

Books: cookbooks are probably my fave, but I'm trying to get in some German writers (in English) while I'm here. Recommendations?

Movies: I've seen all the movies. Practically. Love a good scary movie.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
