About Me


To Evade Complacency


So I'm Kye!
I'm a queer spunky kid set on exploring the world, but for now, I'm exploring my [relatively] new home of the San Francisco Bay Area, working, and studying broadcast media.

Side note: My name used to be 'Kas'. Hence all the messages below with that name. But Kye is my new name-it's comfy with room for growth. (:


Everything happens for a reason.
Also, eat dessert first. Always.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've mainly been a host to Couchsurfing peeps at my former house in Santa Cruz called Zami! In fact, that's how I found Zami! in the first place: a couchsurfer named Sav lived there, and I thought I'd just check it out and instead I never left.
Nowadays, I'm most interested in supporting travelers in navigating the bay and providing a space to make food in.


Having couch surfers share my home in Santa Cruz was such a mind-blowing experience. I realized how much I love showing people around and seeing my home through new eyes.
I haven't done much couch surfing myself, though I did get to enjoy the incredibly warm welcome of the Berlin Queer Couchsurfing group when I traveled there in Aug 2012.


I'm interested in (and love to indulge in lengthy conversations about!):
Punk shows/All-ages Spaces
-Playwriting, theater, and performance
-Joss Whedon and all things Whedonverse
-Sound/Electroacoustic Art
-Community and Pirate Radio
-Music Production
-Really great t.v.
-queerness in pop culture
-fandom geekery
- trans experience
-Delicious chocolate
-Public Transportation (I love it)
-Black identity and travel
-Libraries and bibliophilia

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Netflix has seriously challenged me to not pick just one. But my top favorites are:
-Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
-This is England

Music: Everything under the sun. I love to be challenged by a new genre

Books: I devour any that come my way

TV: Skins, Doctor Who (9! 10!), Sherlock, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Six Feet Under, Orphan Black, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Utopia, Elementary, The Fall, Agents of Shield

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

These things only come to mind in random conversations.

Teach, Learn, Share

I learned how to cook in a 30+ person housing collective, so if you ever want help making massive amounts of vegan/veggie food, I'm always game!

I really like to support the folks in my life, no matter how short our time is together. I'm always eager to ensure an event goes smoothly or chickens are corralled into their coop. I'm a volunteer-aholic.

Having lived in suburbia and cities all my life, I'm in desperate need to hone my camping, hiking, [insert nature activity here] skills. Really, I'm hopeless, and there are cookies in it for anyone who has even a smattering of knowledge of such things and is willing to teach me.
