About Me

I am a total Sippe. That's a german word for "family" Just so happens to be my real last name, and it fits so well. I man, grew up cleaning theaters for my parents with my siblings. I got 4 brothers and 3 sisters. Every morning we got up early and cleaned, and then went home to be schooled by my parents. Ya, I was homeschooled, and we studied the bible.
We always had people living with us or hanging out with us. My dad believed he was called to preach the gospels so he invited anyone crazy enough to come to to our house for bible study, worship music, fellowship and meals. And most of those ppl had been, or where going to be, living in mental hospitals. So it was sort of interesting. My family are some of the greatest people on this planet. certainly a little weird and quite conservative, but genuinely humble, and very nice. They live their lives to show love to people in need, and try to make everyone feel included. I love them.
Ok so maybe this is too much info but I feel like it's important to how I "turned out" and who I am today. My parents way of life proved to me how important it is to open your home to others in need, to give to those who can't back, how simple life can be, because love is ultimately the essence of all things momentary and eternal. There was alot love generated at the threshold of that shitty revolving door, and I didn't even know how weird it was until I got older....

Now, I was born under a taurus sun, and a pisces moon, with the personality of a 4 with a 5 wing.
So naturally, I wanted like hell to get the fuuuuuuuck outta there as soon as I knew how. Ive always somewhat "danced to the sound of my own drummer". I always felt different and the older I got
And the more I thought
Made me drop
Everything I was taught
But just not
The things I ought not
I searched, and read alot
Which brought,
entire new worlds of thought
And I thought alot
And starved.
And searched my inner world for strength
And had many amazing discoveries.
Things that showed god to be a false idol
A useless, hard, lifeless shackle upon my passionate heart.
New law was developing,
A living law
I was the living sacrifice
My heart grew.
I gained more capacity for even more genuine love.
I started recording vocals for a band called Noir.
I smoked an 80extract of Salvia Divinorum, died and came back to life. Changed. Couldn't see the world the same way ever since.
Depression that plagued me ever since my sexuality started developing was gone.
I fell in love with a Ks star named Katie.
I fantasized about traveling. I always wanted to afford traveling through playing music. But even music was reborn for me, it was like I had to relearn everything.
Lost thousands of hours of production for Noir. Harddrive went to shit. Learned to always keep a backup ;)
Noir became Dishes, Dishes became partying everynight in a condemned victorian mansion in north east kcmo, which became a complicated issue resulting in me deciding it was all in vain. And i was becoming increasingly interested in nature, gardens, craft, health and meditation.
Now, in short, Ive got a lot of experience in quite a few subjects, but in essence I am only conscerned in self perfection through love, and perfect self-expression.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to explore new places, It excites me to meet new people. I want to learn more, I want to "broaden my horizens", share the experiences. I want to put myself in positions that will change my point of view, I have a need to empathize with others in other places. Sometimes, along my way, i just need a place to lay.
I think couchsurfing is a easy means of finding the kind of people and situations I want to be with/in.


Welll, someday when I have a home of my own I would definetly have people come stay with me. But right now I'll come to you.


Stayed with various cool cats all around northern california on a month long squander wander. Twas' a very good experience.


I am a fancier of imaginations manifested in all modes. I Dance funny.
Make my own music.
