About Me

Respect your freedom; admire the freedoms of others.

Should I age I hope it is with grace, like 'The Dude'.

Cartoon-brained big kid.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Quite simple: I've had some great experiences thanks to signing up on here, and also met some cool folks who I've hosted. I'd like that to continue!

Broadening compassion for the uniqueness of others.


Travel (obviously), Writing, Reading, Creating, Film, Music, Futurism, Photography, Art, History, Economics, Philosophy, Theology, Footy.

Music, Movies, and Books

Bit of everything. Also big on post rock, ambient electronic, alt rock.

I like poetry, love Bukowski, Neruda, and Fante a lot, among others.

The Truman Show, Darjeeling Limited, In The Mood For Love, Joyland, Lost In Translation, Pulp Fiction, Office Space, The Big Lebowski, Magnolia, Synecdoche NY.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I skydived, that was kinda nuts of me since I'm afraid of heights.

Also, on the subject, fallen recklessly in love and lived to talk of it.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll read you or let you read anything I happen to be reading/writing at the time of meeting.

I can cook pretty well!

Spend time bars/gigs/galleries/scenic or neat city spots.

Conversation that goes past the surface. I consider myself pretty open, though a bit more introverted in large groups.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Beer? Haha...

...but if you don't drink I do understand and will respectfully abstain from bringing alcohol into your home.

Good food/music/I hope laughs!!
