About Me

High on Openness, and Conscientiousness and driven by curiosity, I am easy to get along with. I love meeting new people and reading/listening while walking around...I like staying physically active with yoga and enjoy wandering around new cities. I read mostly about biology, psychology, and economics and always like new perspectives tying them together in new ways.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am on a traveling gap year or more and would like to meet people and learn about other cultures. I am very interested in sharing platforms and have experienced many as both a host and user.

Interests

I am very interested in wellness and have changed approaches and views to the best path for me a few times. I embrace healthy living which gives me temporary heuristics or rules of thumb but I also try to remember how many times I have found my current beliefs about what that means to be wrong. Starting off relatively conservative as a young man I believe I have come full circle to question most of everything, but I still enjoy the journey.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I grew up in Montana and my father was an artist. I totally took that for granted, but that was very formative for who I am. I have some achievements in charity and in hierarchies, but I do not know what I would prefer to signal other than my being shaped by rugged individualism, art, and open nature.

Teach, Learn, Share

In a phase of learning more Yoga, Acro Yoga, Thai Massage and anything related to relaxation while still engaging the body.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to share health views I've acquired. Priorities usually include eating, sleeping, and reducing stress. (Also included would be presenting common myths or misconceptions and trying to invigorate personal agency).

I have an Ashtanga yoga practice and can write up flows.

I can cook simple easy food and present heuristics for people to live better starting with the most basics breath, sleep, eating...only if they/you want.
