About Me

meet cool people and draw crazy cool stuff.
build an art community!!!

I am an adventurer. I like to meet people and go places. I also like to chill out, especially with a cold beer and draw unexpecting wirinkley old men with pipes. I'm also obsessed with architecture and old crumbling buildings and history (although I'm terribly bad at it) and love hearing stories and seeing monuments!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I will happily host many a wild and lonesome traveler!


I have had great experiences!


I love inky pens and drawing, sewing, painting, dancing, frolicking, drinking, dirty fingers, laughing, talking, smoking, riding metros, people watching, strange conversations, badly dressed europeans, hotel shampoos, fig trees, markers, the colors middle aged women choose to dye their hair

Music, Movies, and Books

as far as books, anything by Chuck P. or Henry Miller. Lately I've been really into Daphne du Maurier, and I guess in general I love scary literature and films. I love the movie Labyrinth! David Bowie's crotch is a sight to behold. As far as music... I simply couldn't list everything I like on this webpage, but I can tell you I DONT like Lady Gaga or any of that other bullshit american pop music

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hiked for 5 days in the Andes and saw Machu Piccu on my brithday!

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn from and see how other people live and profit from life. My way of living is just one tiny sliver of the millions and billions of possibilities out there! And it makes me sad when people judge me for being american. I want to teach the world that not all americans are McDonalds devouring, wealthy bigots and even though we all speak english, we can vary in all shapes and sizes!
