About Me

I am affable, jovial, and debonair. I love to tell jokes, but I also love to explain why they're so funny. Sadly, I am unable to snap my fingers or whistle with my fingers or play the piano. I am also bad at thumb-wrestling. I like to be out and about, in nature and in culture. That is me.

Politically, I lean strongly towards the left but I like to think about things from all possible angles. What I strongly dislike is stupidity. By that I don't mean a lack of education or information, but rather the kind of attitude that assumes shouting at a problem will make it go away.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I am an international kind of person and I like to meet other people who are also international and visit places that I haven't visited yet.
