About Me

CURRENT MISSION

get something going here

ABOUT ME

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.
美国南部佬。住过很多国家。现在住北京以便可趁各种奇特机会。而且我非常喜欢北京。

I dig art and philosophy and work in that vein.
我认识艺术,学习哲学,玄学,巫术等等。我干的工作跟这些有关系。

PHILOSOPHY

fait ce que voudras
行汝之道,即法之全。爱是法,臣于道。

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN 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.
随便占我的沙发吧。我住一所老北京胡同的平房,这儿的附近清静而好玩儿。

"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

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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.
