About Me


meditate to elevate to levitate


I'm a 6'7" healer/freestyle rapper. My goals are to quiet my mind as much as possible and assist others in doing the same. I am involved in documentary projects and regularly go on road trips. I love to be in the present moment and I love to make eye contact. I am making a trip to India in the near future to my physical living guru. Oh, and one more thing, I dance like a madman manic. It appears to the unknowing observer that I might be having a seizure thank God I don't drool too much at the mouth.


Shattering people's reality to show that the impossible is not only possible but logical. Never take yourself too seriously because life is more of a cosmic joke then anything. Yet if you are telling a joke commit the punchline. If my mind is quiet then everything else falls into place. I am that I am. Never chase what is outside of for there is something far greater on the inside that needs no chasing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I meet lots of people and connect them to other wonderful people. I merely follow my inner self as best as possible.


Been couchsurfing across America for the past 12 years. Up there with Speed Levitch as far as the great couch surfers of 21st century North America. Done a little bit overseas which is happening a bit more frequently. I feel like I was born sleeping on a couch or floor. I am low key, but also quietly intense at times.


I make short videos with friends and filmmakers and put them up on youtube
Strolling For President Of the United States 2008 youtube.com and type "Slacker Prophet"
Meditation (specifically dhyana Meditation) walking around with big signs for healing and rapping, Union Square Park, beautiful roadtrips, meeting new people, changing people's perceptions of what they can accomplish if they truly desire change.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spent a little over a month watching the famous healer "John of God" work his magic on those who were told there was no hope. Most of these people ended up deciding that terminal means absolutely nothing at all and you choose your own fate.
