About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find a mission

ABOUT ME

I'm a wanna-be expat. I don't hate the U.S., but I've spent enough time there and now desire a change. I like discovering new cities, but I prefer meeting new people (particularly those of a different culture than my own).

PHILOSOPHY

I prefer existence over non-existence. Some quotes I like:
"Your reality, sir, is nothing but lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say I have no grasp of it whatsoever!" - from Baron Munchausen
"Ideologies separate us. Dreams and anguish bring us together." - Eugene Ionesco.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm not much of a cook (yet), if you do any cooking, I WILL do the dishes. I have a lifetime's experience in cleaning up.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None yet (who wants to be my first!?). I am a member of Servas, which is almost the same as couchsurfing, but a bit more official with interviews and such.

Interests

I spend entirely too much time steeped in entertainment. I make too many movie references but can't seem to help myself. Almost no one in Europe knows the bands I listen to, but a lot of people know David Lynch, so there's a bit of a trade-off. I also like tennis and spicy food.

Music, Movies & Books

Books: Anything by J.D. Salinger or Ray Bradbury. Movies: In Bruges, Lost in Translation, Last of the Mohicans, Before Sunset/Sunrise. Music: The National, Arcade Fire, Crystal Castles, 80's music, oldies.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was once an extra in a movie with George Clooney.

Teach, Learn, Share

Salt is the only thing humans eat that was never living.

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Nepal, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Thailand, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

United States
