Sobre mí

CURRENT MISSION

My mission is discover what my mission is!

ABOUT ME

I am best described as energetic and extroverted. I dont want to "have a beer"... I want to go out dancing, or climb a tree, or climb ten trees.

The activities that I partake in consist of things that involve movement and are not always conventional, such as:
-Swing Dancing (google it)
-Use of jumping stilts (google it)
-Kangoo jumping (google it)
-Pogo-sticking (g.....oogle.... it)
-Parkour (goooooooooooogle...........)

People will also take note of me that I have a deep fascination with asian culture. I can cook many asian dishes with authenticity such as pho (though it takes 10 hours) and I will frequently compare facets of western to eastern culture. I have also studied psychology and enjoy discussing my research.

I have had many careers in my life, including:

-Psychology Researcher
-Professional outdoor skills instructor/survivalist
-Professional Matchmaker
-Auto Damage Adjuster

I possess several odd skills that I enjoy sharing, listed in the section below.

PHILOSOPHY
If you bite the hand thats feeds you, it wont taste as good as the food you would have been fed.

Por qué estoy en Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have been hosting for 8 years and have had countless positive experiences! I host frequently in an effort to help as many travelers as possible (Portland sure is a popular place to visit!) and believe strongly in the exchange portion of the CS mission. If I CS request you, its because I took the time to read your profile deeply and think that we will connect well.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

One of my most memorable is when my friend and I stayed with a host in Ecuador. We bonded with our host so much that one year later, she flew out to the United States to attend a music festival with us! She remains a good friend to this day.

Intereses

I like wild and spontaneous activities, bicycles, rock climbing, Parkour, Jumping stilts & Kangoo jumps, pogo sticks, hiking, psychology, camping, DIY hobbies/activities like sewing, good tea, swing & salsa dance.

Música, películas y libros

I like to dance to salsa and swing.
For listening music, I prefer an indie-rock lineup. Artists such as Fleet Foxes, Cocorosie, The Magnetic Fields, Belle & Sebastian, the Animal Collective, and The Decemberists are all favorites.
I dont have the attention span for books!

Algo increíble que he hecho

The Burning Man festival! Also, I recently completed a 3-week long hike on the John Muir Trail. It nearly killed me... nearly.
It was the greatest adventure I have ever been on!

Enseña, aprende, comparte

I can teach/share the following:
-A broad array of asian cooking
-Psychology research and skills (from fun-facts to practical applications such as use of body language)
-Expert level outdoor adventure skills, ie. backpacking, rock climbing (I can teach you how to tie all sorts of cool knots!), camping in snow caves, etc.
-Swing and Salsa dancing
-Auto/car appraisal, various mechanical skills
-Parkour

I have a lot of fun toys to play with such as a professional-grade pogo stick, jumping stilts, & kangoo jumps that I let my guests try (if you are brave enough).

My one truly unique odd talent is the ability to suction my hand to my eye socket. Ask me to demonstrate sometime :-)

I would like to learn most anything, especially practical skills (like sewing technique) or skills that are particularly odd or bizarre that can be used to impress people (like how to do magic!).
