About Me

CURRENT MISSION

in general: be nice and fascinated with everything; on the cerebral side: write papers and teach; on the physical side: be able to outrun my husky at the dogpark... and to run to the top of green mountain, our local mini-peak;

ABOUT ME

i just finished my phd in architecture and joined the faculty at the university of colorado in boulder. easy going, people say i'm always happy (because i guess i smile a lot), consider myself flexible and really enjoy lots of different things, places, people from all walks. i'm respectful of and interested in difference--be it types of humor or people's taste in music or whatever. generally eager to explore and accommodating.

PHILOSOPHY

love and passion, nature, happiness (or unhappiness associate with depth), kindness and thoughtfulness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

i've surfed once in NYC and it was a WONDERFUL experience. i'm looking forward to hosting others to share that experience. update: second surfing experience was awesome. and we're hosting our first surfer in a few weeks.

Interests

chillin with my wife and/or our dog, baran. i love being in the wilderness, good cafes, watching people, exploring cities and rural areas. running, jujitsu, volleyball, rough-housing with my brother and friends who enjoy impromptu wrestling, or being totally well-behaved and sophisticated, sitting down and listening to music, deeply.
