About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to meet all my fellow Earthlings!

ABOUT ME
I don't think I fit nicely into this box.
You'll just have to find out!

PHILOSOPHY

I'm an equal opportunist. Come as you are.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To travel in a different way. Yes, I want to see the Eiffel Tower if I'm in Paris, but I also want to experience how Parisians live. That may require me to stay in the Banlieue instead of the Champs Elysees, and I'm okay with that!

Tennis
White water rafting
Trivia
Surfing
Hiking
Satire

Music, Movies, and Books

If you're a fan of indie, folk or acoustic then we will have something to chat about.

I'm constantly listening to podcasts (esp. NPR and its affiliates) and watching documentaries.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

How about a top ten?

Catching the sunrise over the Angkor Wat, Cambodia
(Illegally) Sleeping under the Milky Way near Lake Tekapo, New Zealand
Unexpectedly snorkeled with sharks in the Great Barrier Reef
Being "adopted" by a Sri Lanka family in Kandy
Sand boarding in Ica, Peru
Enjoying the most pristine beach in the world (Whitsunday) only to be attacked by a flock of hungry seagulls who proceeded to steal lunch and break my camera
Having a wallaby break into my van and doing its business while I was sleeping in the tent (Tasmania)
Hiding in a temple in Bangkok while the military cracked down on protestors
Showed up in Venice during peak season without a reservation and ended up in a very pricey dungeon...
Making two short documentaries in El Salvador in heavily armed gang territories.

But just talk to me!

Teach, Learn, Share

As cheesy as this sounds, I believe every individual has something to teach or offer to someone else.
