About Me


To explore strange new worlds. To seek out new forms of civilization.


There are a lot of words to describe my actions. I am a vegetarian, a queer, a social explorer, drinker, talker, reader, and an all around curious cat.

I like to walk down back alleys, sit in nice coffee shops and dive bars.

My greatest goal in life is to have a better understanding of how and why people live it. I want to know why people are who they are.

To that end I'll share about me first: I'm Genderqueer (They/Them/Theirs pronouns) and tend to go on random late night walks to think about existential crises, smoke herbal blends (mmm, roses) and drink cocktails with some friends and forties with others. Most likely, one of my personalities will get along with you. If yer looking for a place to crash, hmu!


I believe that an easy life is a wasted life. That it takes great strength and courage to grow. And that we are all here to help each other get through this thing, whatever it is.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I am currently hosting at my co-op style house. Welcoming folks who are traveling to Austin and especially giving a safe space to Queers of all varieties to come visit here.


I have surfed on CS in Nashville, Tn. Twice. Otherwise I've hosted a few folks from here. Outside of CS I have slept on many couches and had many people sleep on mine :)


Learning more about myself, whether I want to or not ;) Finding places, people and things which are outside the commonly accepted ways of life. Coffee Conversation Beer, both good and bad Art and artists Science Fiction and Fact Walking, Sitting, Talking, Listening Finding new art projects to start up, put on hold, forget about, find again later, rinse, lather, repeat Learning about and from people I meet

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have cross stitched a quote from a William Shatner song. It was a cover.

Teach, Learn, Share

To Share: I have practical skills in construction and painting for theatre and am a general handyperson. I'm also a decent and creative cook. I can make your leftovers sing! I'm willing to listen to your story. People need to be able to tell their stories.

To Learn: I would love to learn how to fly.
