Join Couchsurfing to see Richard Gage’s full profile. It’s free!
I honestly dont know where to start! I grew up and spent most of my life in south florida. I was a student studying sociology politics and anthropology but now I'm taking time off! (this time off has lasted a few years now)
Over the past few years Ive traveled through a bunch of different places and have lived in both Berlin and Reykjavik, Iceland but more recently Ive settled in Brooklyn.
When i travel i prefer to go by my middle name which is Gage but you can call me Richard too most of my friends do.
Im interested in politics, activism, under ground music, occupy, DIY ethics, Food Not Bombs, Earth First, sociology, veganism, partying, brewing beer, etc.
My ultimate pet-peeve is the existence of borders. I don't like the idea that a government can tell me when and where I am allowed to live.
if you want to learn more about me you can also check out my facebook which is:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have a lot of couchsurfing experience although a majority have been very informal. I have a tendency to just show up in far away cities, meet random people in bars or at shows then surf their couch rather than using the website but this is good too haha!
brewing my own beer & wine! , music, traveling, anarchism, political science, sociology, anthropology, playing instruments (guitar, ukulele, banjo, bass and some drums.), dancing, singing, and meeting people!
- political science

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I'd rather talk about those experiences in person.
Teach, Learn, Share
I´m very fascinated by languages and would love to learn as much of your language as i can! I also love playing and learning about new instruments and if you have one ive never played before i´ll insist you teach me a thing or two about it.
I would love to teach people how to brew beer and possibly how to play some songs on guitar or banjo (thats always fun)
