About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Ultimately... to save the Universe.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in the Windy City but have always had a hard time staying still. Traveled a lot with my mother when I was younger and took the habit of being on a plane into my adult life.

Now I embark on a series of creative endeavors to keep my feet planted on the ground... for as long as possible.

So much work to be done in the clouds though...

PHILOSOPHY

I'm a cat person

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm not much for meetings and it's probably been over a year since I've been to any couch-surfing events.

But I did just move into a new place with a nice gigantic-sized couch in the fancy part of town...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I think the Couchsurfing experience here in Barcelona is a little different than other places in the world. When I was first moving here I found it really frustrating trying to find a place.

That said there are some good people in this community (as well as a bunch of crazy zealots) you just have to dig.

Hosting has been a mixed bag. Until now I've only hosted two people. One was excellent, and I think the other one was a lunatic who escaped from a convent, stole my money, and used it to buy weed.

Needless to say I screen people pretty carefully now. :)

Interests

Writing, photography, videography, languages, biking, music, gazing.

Music, Movies & Books

The Malteese Falcon, Saturday, Philip Marlowe.
