About Me

Capitol Hill in Seattle


extremely curious, liberal, and kinetic

generally laid back but...

one unbreakable house rule: no smoking or vaping, inside the building, the apartment, out the open window...ever.


You ride the merry-go-round once. Don't waste it.
Look for reasons to say "yes".

Why I’m on Couchsurfing




Hosting in Chicago, a lot of hosting in Seattle
Dinner with a host in Whitefish MT

Generally, I am always open to hosting and ready to do so. There are a couple key/important things to know:

1. I do not work remotely at home. (I don't like it) - this means key exchange times have to be precise and well communicated. I am generally in my office 5 days a week.

2. I am often away on weekends - I'm happy to share the space whether I'm there or not--just know that when I need to head out, I need to head out. I'm not able to postpone due to airport issues, customs issues, etc. Often I'm catching transit with deadlines and departure times.

3. I often host a couple requests at once - particularly if I'm away.
