About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I tend to live in little microcosms with lots of people and lots of space and make it available to interesting travelers.


a month and a half couchsurfing in montreal.
friendly with some of the nyc couchsurfing crowd.
attended some of the couchsurfer gatherings.
hosted quite a few couchsurfers.


My passion is wellness.

Wellness at all levels:

This requires a simple catalyst: AWARENESS

By raising our own consciousness about how we can make better choices is part of being the change we want to see. If it's to be, it's up to me. Start with now.

Music, Movies, and Books

Suggested reading:
Power Vs Force, David R Hawkins
Slow Money, Woody Tasch
Anything by Kurt Vonnegut
Nowtopia, Chris Carlsson
The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved, Sandor Katz
Fermenting Revolution, Chris O'Brien
Rules for Radicals, Saul D. Alinsky
Edible Forest Gardens, Dave Jacke
Permaculture: A Designers' Manual, Bill Mollison
Healing With Whole Foods, Paul Pitchford
Murray Bookchin
Daniel Quinn
Tom Robbins
H.H. The Dalai Llama

I prefer old movies, or at least movies that don't depend on some cheesy cliche plot and special effects. I love Beethoven and jazz, folk-punk and cabaret, but 90's rock does it for me, too, among others, from the Talking Heads to Stevie Wonder.
There are far too many good books to ever list here, but a few favorite authors are Chuck Palahniuk, Aldous Huxley, Kurt Vonnegut, Jack Kerouac and the beats, Dr. Seuss, Daniel Quinn, and anyone that challenges our understanding of "reality." I tend to read a lot of non-fiction on whatever subject I find captivating and necessary for my development.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

life is full of surprises. i had a job in china for 7 months. now i speak a little bit of Mandarin!

Teach, Learn, Share

i love to teach/discuss yoga, meditation, permaculture, aquaculture, bike repair, vegan whole live raw food, nutrition, basic foraging and survival, philosophy/spirituality and fermentation.

Teach me anything that will help me survive independent of the artificial life-support system we call the global economy.

i'd love to learn Japanese, and I'm working on my Spanish!

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, China, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Thailand
