About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Je veux apprendre à parler cette langue

ABOUT ME

Not much to say. I like to play music, to surf (as in, waves... but couches too), to learn history, to read, to metaphysics.

I like cats. I might be a cat. Sometimes, I consider my upbringing to have been more influenced by cats than humans.

Oh, and I LOVE Mexican food.

yes...

Enchiladas, Buritos, Taquitos, oh my!

mmmm....

PHILOSOPHY

Soft determinist.

Routines are boring; alarm clocks are lame.

Dat Socrates

I had a seriously great time surfing the couches I encountered across Europe, meeting some great people and experiencing their lives.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

-J'ai vu une femme enceinte fume du crack. :(

-At the time of writing, I have just returned from an adventurous stint in the Catacombs of Paris.

-I once had to run away from a drugged out man in Buenos Aires who was screaming `tres bien´ at the top of his lungs and making spiderman arm movements.

I can teach music , I want to learn languages, I can share some basic cooking. Somebody teach me Russian please !
