Always up for an unplanned adventure. I prefer the bright side of any situation... except for coffee, which I prefer dark.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've done a good amount of both surfing and hosting -- hoping to do more of both soon.
Food, photography, music, biking, wine, whiskey, urban design, exploring, dancing, books, technology, architecture, meeting new people, long conversations, crossword puzzles.
2 quotes I like:
"To know anything well involves a profound sensation of ignorance."
"You don't have to specialize - do everything that you love and then, at some time, the future will come together for you in some form."
-Francis Ford Coppola
