About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Is that you John Wayne? Is this me?

ABOUT ME

I'm a musician, I play the drums and piano. I love music and traveling. I have recently graduated from college with a degree in literature...my main focus was poetry... in my hometown I was a DJ at a bar spinning soul and funk. I moved back to Denver from Berlin about six months ago, and I'm hoping I can get back out there again soon.
I think if I try to say anything else about myself here it will sound disingenuous, so let's have a conversation in person!

PHILOSOPHY

constantly changing...can't seem to hang on to one for long!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My couch is available anytime for any traveler(s) to crash on. I am also always happy to take visitors around my city. There is a good nightlife here and we are very close to the mountains and good skiing/snowboarding or other outdoorsy stuff.. come check out D-town!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had only good experiences...everyone I have met has been very hospitable and I have made some great friends. In my opinion, it is the only way to travel.

Interests

Music (seeing, listening, playing), artifacts, literature, international foods, cooking, great beers and wines of the world, collecting records, traveling, getting lost, languages (I wish I could speak more), partying in plaid, getting out of jury duty, mountaineering, playing four square....all this and so much more.

Music, Movies & Books

Ornette Coleman, Big L, Dungen, Tom Ze, The Monks, Swell Maps, Terry Riley, St. John Coltrane, Tortoise, Jim O'Rourke, Shostakovich, Soft Machine, Keith Jarrett, Cymande, Frank Zappa, Chopin, Slum Village, Albert Ayler, The Stylistics... just to name a few. I also enjoy the films of Godard, Fassbinder, Bergman, Antonioni, Polanski.
Authors--Milan Kundera, Ben Marcus, William Faulkner, Saul Bellow, Samuel Beckett...I studied poetry in college so I am an avid reader of that stuff...Frank O'Hara, Larry Levis, Tomaz Salamun, Wallace Stevens, Charles Olson, Robert Creeley...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I stayed on a Native American reservation in Montana and witnessed/helped out with a real Sun Dance. That was a life affirming experience.
