About Me

I’m completely daft at writing about myself and find the subject “about me” to be something like an existential wormhole. I guess my journey thus far has been largely outward, always landing in some new place or turning over some new idea. Couchsurfing has aided me in this voyage through time and space, and I’ve encountered much with the aid of a couch or suggestion from a fellow voyager. Here are some of my keener interests:

Telemark skiing
Ice hockey

I’m hoping to spend a lot of 2024/2025 on the road, seeing some new things and trying to rediscover the desire for living.

We’ll see what vicissitudes life on the road brings this time around.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Northern lights like lasers shooting down and the wolves howling, under a canopy of the Milky Way in Lake of the Woods, Ontario.
