About Me


get something going here


Cajun guy, from south Louisiana. I've lived all over, but now I live in Beijing for a variety of peculiar opportunities all too rare elsewhere. It's a good, clean, fun, and funny life in China, but one's appreciation of all these vague descriptors becomes somewhat red-tinted over time.

I dig art and philosophy and work in that vein.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


you can come stay on my couch if you like. It's in a busy and super fun part of traditional Beijing, in the middle of the HuTongs, that's both quiet and bustly simultaneously. The hostels and hotels in this neck of Beijing are super pricey, so I've decided to be a host.

"You shall neither wrong a stranger, nor oppress him: for you were strangers in the land of Egypt." -Ex.22.21
尔不得骗外人或镇压他们,是因尔等前在埃及为陌生人。- 圣经的胡话


I've hosted a number of couch surfers in New Orleans, Austria, Egypt, Albuquerque, and Beijing. People from all over. Similarly, I've surfed on many a couch, but mostly in the USA. Finding this website is an opportunity to hit couches in China as I can't boast having a few friends in every city like I could elsewhere.
