About Me


To live life as hands on as possible


Isn't this what all the rest of the description categories on my profile are for?


A strange combination of Jack Kerouac musings, Douglas Adams humor, Mark Twain characters, and stolen philosophies of other couchsurfers giftwrapped in pages torn out of a King James and sent to Bob Dylan to be written down as liner notes for his next "Greatest Hits" album.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host, surf, learn, enjoy, share.


This community has brought some of the most beautiful, inspirational, and thoughtful people of the world directly in to my life. Can't beat that!

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: Anything that is Kerouac, Tom Wolfe, Hunter S. Thompson, Kurt Vonnegut, CS Lewis, Douglas Adams, Some Herman Hesse, SE Hinton, Catch-22, etc.
Music: A list too large to comprehend, with a high stock put into innovation and improvisation. My taste in music expands constantly, for better or worse.
" when you hear stuff and it leaves you cold, it passes you by, it is not the fault of the music. You weren't ready." - Elvis Costello

Here's a shameless plug for my main band:

Movies: the LOTR trilogy, Dumb and Dumber (Kerouac's "On the Road" in layman's terms), Into the Wild, Across the Universe, Memento, Crash,7 pounds, most movies that challenge me to think with a large handful of just-for-funners as well.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm very enthusiastic about sharing my music with the world, and more than willing to teach what I can therein. On a more practical and base level, I'm happy to help out around the house of my host or cook a meal in exchange for a roof to sleep under!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Music, laughter, food.
