About Me

I enjoy bouldering, mountain biking, trail running, yoga, meditation, conservation, tramping, I keep bees and create parties and events.

I’m also big into podcasts and audiobooks while I’m working. Reading can be an effort as I only do nonfiction, so I keep it for free time 😇

If you could have dinner with anyone past or present... language is not a barrier to communication with whomever you choose... obviously, I’m busy this night 😉 who would it be?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet new people and learn different ways of viewing the world. I never want to be stuck in an echo chamber of opinions.


Good friends, making things myself regardless of what it is. From beer, wine, spirits, to chocolate, yogurt, kombucha, bread, and anything in between. riding with or without a motor. Nutrition (but I'm not a preacher) hunting/fishing (for food and conversation, not sport.) lucid dreaming. Meditation. Bee🐝keeping. Sometimes even art.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like most genres of music and movies. Fear and loathing fear and loathing in Las Vegas, Forest Gump are my tops. Recent books are Sapiens. A short story of nearly everything. At home, a short story of private life. Thinking, fast and slow. The selfish gene. Own the day, own your life. Waking up. The doors of perception. How to change your mind. The dark web. 12 rules for life. The three body problem. A mans search for meaning. The ethical slut. Outliers. Sex at dawn. Nonviolent communication. How To Win Friends And Influence People (in the digital age). Attached
