About Me

I am unapologetically nerdy, progressive, and queer. You don't have to be anything like me, but as long you respect who I am we'll get along great :)

Been on CS for 10 years now. Still love and appreciate it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My first experience surfing a couch was on Sado Island. The couple, Daniel and Aya, were really nice, and partially because of them I really fell in love with the island! Meeting locals is really the best way to know a place.

I'm on Couchsurfing to keep meeting new travelers and friends along the way. Now I've settled in Tucson a bit, I'm looking forward to hosting again cause it's been quite a while. If you catch me on a weekend, you may get an invite to come camping with me.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a big love for foreign films and music, and every so often migrate to a new language to watch or listen in. Even if I can't understand it, if it's good, it's good!
