About Me


To live, laugh, love....grow, discover...you know, stuff like that.


I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see them dancin'
Walking around on those...what do you call 'em?
Oh, feet!


Live life to the fullest, whatever that may mean. But don't hurt others.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

It's amazing.


People, music, politics, food, concerts, philosophy, written words, writing words, pretty things, art, dancing, hearing people's stories, traveling (not as a means to an end but as an end itself), anything I don't know anything about...actually, not sports but I'll keep trying :)

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Stupid ones. Mostly chick flicks, comedies, and huge blockbuster films that get terrible reviews. 27 Dresses, The Devil Wears Prada, Mean Girls, etc. Also love The Pianist, Fight Club, Chicago, The Hours, Koyaanisqatsi, American Beauty, and Woody Allen movies in general.

Books: So many!! But if I HAD to pick one book that has influenced me more than others, it would be Ulysses. I'm neither a pretentious prick nor someone trying to be one, but I will defend James Joyce and Ulysses until the day I die. Other favourite authors: Woolf, DH Lawrence, Conrad. I also enjoy keeping up with the news, a good bio, etc. I grew up on Harry Potter; he'll always have a special place in my heart.

Music: Bach, Future Sound of London, Neutral Milk Hotel, Iron Maiden, Mahler, Beethoven, Henry Cowell, Trentemoller, Cat Power, Hiromi Uehara, Mother Mother, Bonobo, Zola Jesus, Radiohead, Philip Glass, Boards of Canada, Taylor Swift, Modest Mouse, Beardyman, Arctic Monkeys, Lady Gaga, Sia, Muse, Timber Timbre, Guns n Roses, Nine Inch Nails, As I Lay Dying, Nicolas Jaar, Ray Charles, Dr. Dog, Michael Jackson, Amon Tobin, Bon Iver, Iranian funk, Aphex Twin, the Black Keys, Gregorian chants, Autechre, the National, the Cults, Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, Eric Clapton, Sigur Ros.....ok, this is silly.
