About Me

CURRENT MISSION

figure it out when I get there

ABOUT ME

Been on traveling hiatus for a few years, got sucked into the routine of work and school for a while, Now I'm working on riding my bike across the U.S. I'm real easy to get along with, am usually up for whatever and not sure what else to add here, maybe some of the reviews will give you an idea so I can end the corny self-description here.

PHILOSOPHY

"Be excellent to each other"

- Bill and Ted...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

have hosted some couchsurfers and been hosted by some good people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Slept on a lot of couches, floors etc. while roadieing for bands. You get in the van, drive somewhere, and someone usually puts you up, cooks etc., it's a pretty rad way to meet people and see new spots.

Interests

music/concerts/shows, bikes, skateboards, books, randomness and even some ridiculousness, hanging by the river, relaxing in the park, drinking too much coffee, veg food, working on improving my chess game, unexpected conversations with strangers, etc...

Music, Movies & Books

movies: The Big Lebowski, Repo Man, Pulp Fiction, Stepbrothers,ridiculous comedies and documentaries.

music: Black Flag, Minor Threat, Talib Kweli, KRS-ONE, Zion I & The Grouch, Kid Dynamite, lots of other punk rock/hardcore/hip hop, and even a little mellow stuff like Lana del Rey, Vampire Weekend, Radiohead...

books: Ishmael, 1984, Siddhartha, The Alchemist, almost any Kurt Vonnegut, Noam Chomsky, If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him!, any Tom Robbins

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Touring Canada with my friends in the band Reservoir, hitting the beach in California, riding my skateboard on a perfect day, late night bike rides. I am frequently stoked and about life, mine and in general.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have lots of experience doing punk rock things,so if you are curious about booking concerts, putting out your own magazine, touring, doing a record label, I am more than stoked to try and give you some ideas from my experience. I am also pretty experienced in working with youth. Lots of other interests are works in progress.
