About Me

Trying to navigate a path outside of the capitalist system without sinking. The education system is bogus, school debt is bullshit, buying things won't make you happy; it's better to just go outside.

Let's ride bikes, make things, and cook food.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Show me around your town. I'll show you around mine. Money only functions as the primary mobility tool in our culture if we let it.

You learn more visiting a place when you meet people that live there and I like making friends.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach bookbinding techniques, artist books, and zines. I would love to learn more about farming. I've worked on a vegetable farm and a coffee farm, and with horses. I would like to learn anything about carpentry or mechanics.
