About Me

CURRENT MISSION

host finally going nomadic

ABOUT ME

I'm all grown up now and living in a van with a man and a dog, both of whom have beards. We are traveling the Americas in our Volkswagen camper van and looking for interesting stories.

PHILOSOPHY

You must always have a secret plan. Everything depends on this: it is the only question.

So as not to be conquered by the conquered territory in which you lead your life, so as not to feel the horrible inertia wrecking your will and bending you to the ground, so as not to spend a single night more wondering what there is to do or how to connect with your neighbors and countrymen, you must make secret plans without respite. Plan for adventure, plan for pleasure, plan for pandemonium, as you wish; but plan, lay plans constantly.

And when you come to, on the steps of the presidential palace, in the green grass beside the highway, in your cell's gloomy solitude, your secret plan finished or foiled, ask your comrades, ask your cellmates...ask everything that ponders, everything that wanders, everything that sings, everything that stings, ask them what time it is; and your comrades, your cellmates, all will answer: "It is time for a new secret plan. So as not to be the martyred slave of routine, plan for adventure, plan pleasure, plan pandemonium, as you wish; but plan, plan secretly and without respite."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

As a host, I offered love and omelets and support services. As a surfer, I can still do the same.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted a lot when I lived in San Francisco and New York, and then jumped off the radar when I skipped the country, fell in love, and moved back. Now we're just looking to share the experience with each other, and our awesome new dog, Milo!

Interests

Everything but what's on TV tonight.

Music, Movies & Books

Napoleon Dynamite, Yo La Tengo, LCD Soundsystem, Jazz, Mahler, Paul Theroux, Paul Auster, this is too hard so I just listed the movie I watched a few hours ago, the last six things I played in iTunes, and the two books on my kitchen table.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My boyfriend once fixed an automobile incident for me with a credit card, like McGyver-style. It was amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I recently learned that you can die from alcohol withdrawal. Or have a seizure.
