About Me


To meet friends from all walks of life...


So hard when given a "All about you" section and an entirely blank slate to write on...

Um...I am really laid back, musically driven, passionate in many areas (writing, cooking/eating local cuisine...)

Really, if you want to know anything about me, just email

BLOG - I keep a blog fairly regularly and so far, it's been quite well received.


If it feels right, just do it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I heard from my friend in Belize that this is a great way to meet both travelers and fellow live-abroads. So you might say, I'm in it for the networking!


So far, so good, my profile is kickin'!


Music, football (soccer), food, writing, reading, exploring uncharted waters, taking giant leaps of faith, laughing, listening, telling stories, wearing flip-flops, bargaining at the market, filling out lists devoted entirely to myself

Music, Movies, and Books

Movie - S21 - documentary on the Khmer Rouge regime
Music - Sigur Ros, love this group
Book - my handy Lonely Planet Vietnamese phrasebook!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have two passports. And I use them both.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to barter for at least a 50% discount at almost all markets here and in doing so, you will learn the Vietnamese numeral system (startlingly simply)
