About Me


Reclaim my Southern heritage. Learn to prepare a good roux and trinity. Visit Stax Records in Memphis. Float down a river with some cold ones.


About me: I'm a twenty-something living in Seattle, working towards becoming a more complete human being. I spend my days in and out of the office, preparing music for that next dance party, and hanging out with you.

dislikes: angry people, homeopathy, memes, objectivism, haters


People are pretty reasonable characters, they'll find a reason to do or not do almost anything! So you know, very generally, I do believe that things can be made better in life, but you've got to change yourself, and change those around you and change the world. Eat food, not a lot, and the more vegetables the better. Share.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd like to participate by hosting some travelers, sharing some drinks and some stories, and getting to meet other travelers on the road!


I live with Seattle Roomies for a while, and then I made a move on my own! I'm living with peaceable and fun-loving homies in Beacon Hill neighborhood, south of the Chinatown. Prior to that, I lived with a few other punks and we started a fun club and threw house shows and made vegan meals--- we hosted touring bands and travelers, but all of it was conducted through myspace.

I haven't met any couch travelers on the road just yet- but I'm hoping to change that soon.

Music, Movies, and Books

A couple of stories I finished lately: White Teeth by Zadie Smith, Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

I'm always listening to tunes, too many to list here.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach, Learn, Share, everyday and every way. I agree. By no means do I claim to be skilled or masterful, but I can share with you what I know. I can show you how to mix and beatmatch and play DJ. I'm pretty good at starting fires. I can teach you a little bit about coffee and art and music and how I look at the world if you want to learn.
