About Me

CURRENT MISSION

happiness, health, dirty hair, clean teeth, music that sounds beautiful -- like an underwater washing machine.

ABOUT ME

obsessive musician. even more obsessive record collector.vague and unobtrusive obsessive compulsive tendencies. enjoys non-fiction, minty toothpicks, various curries, deep sleep, easy conversation. not many dislikes. i think i'm reasonable.

PHILOSOPHY

somewhat taoist. used to call myself a spiritual agnostic, which isn't necessarily so far removed from the contemporary tao mindset. life is worth living if you value your output.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

just started. should probably do some couch shopping.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

hostels only, no couches! looking to test out some couches! actually, not true--i lived on a couch for a year, but it was fueled by necessity rather than the much preferred spontaneity.

Interests

unusual sounds, guitars with character, curry spices (redundant!)
