About Me


making it


I recently learned how to knit and make jam. Grandmas of America...

it's on.


Keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm interested in surfing, hosting, and making the future nomad base the now nomad base.


Theatre, community art, radio and movie-making, photography, education, books.

I really like people.

...also, the amazing sashaying sea anenome. Light of my life, fire of my loins.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm really big on any kind of music with good lyrics and strong voices, and I love playing guitar and singing. I always love hearing new music, though, and I don't know very much about music, so I would love to hear what you like!

I love Russian lit and 20/21st century poetry, especially Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Wislawa Szymborska, Elizabeth Bishop and recently Kay Ryan. I also really like pop science. Ooh, baby. Don't give me the graphs and the data. Give me the -biographies- of the scientists. Yeah. No really, though, talk science to me.

Movies-wise: artsy movies, smart comedies, and thrillers that aren't too creepy. Imagine "When Harry Met Sally", but with high color saturation, long silences, and a heist.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once waded with the ducks in Lake Lucerne.
