About Me


to see and learn and do


I want to enjoy the world and all of it's beauty, weirdness and mystery!

I'm very easy-going and open to new experiences.


But for now we are young, let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm relatively new to couchsurfing, but I've gone to a few meetups. Looking forward to having some more!


I'm interested in good food/food touring, live music, walking, looking at beautiful things, peace, sharing, bargain book shopping, ideas, pictures, challenges and people.

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently reading: World-changing: A User's Guide for the 21st Century

Just saw second line in New Orleans - totally rad- and now getting into brass bands and jazz music. Would love some music recommendations.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching a frog float burn on the beach at carnaval in Crete. Driving from California to New Jersey. Biking 350 miles in 6 days (getting legs of steel).

Teach, Learn, Share

People with wide world views who are daring and will push me beyond my own boundaries.

Would love to learn:

- more languages (brush up on my Mandarin and Spanish)
- to competitively memorize
- about typography
- about architecture
- to take awesome pictures/about cameras
- good food recipes and blogs of different countries
- to sew
- to design a website or code
- to drive stick (many feeble attempts..)
- how to grow an effective seasonal garden in an urban setting
