About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To get dirty, bloody, and sweaty and wash it off in the rain.

ABOUT ME

Forever curious. I would love to learn and experience as much as I can, and one of the best ways for that is to interact with people. I'm finding wisdom, unquestionable beauty, and truth in nature that I never thought that I would before having been born and raised in New York City. Nature is a funny word, would love to hear your definitions of it.

PHILOSOPHY

"Asking himself, even before the curtain goes up, what am I? I am now 80 years old, and more, and I am determined to find precisely
what I am, what I amount to. They tell me I am everything, they flatter
me everyday, of my life. I am now going to subject myself to a rigorous test in order to find out really what I am. I don't care about kingdom I don't about rule, anymore. It is of no importance to me, as such, but I must find out what I am before I die".

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm respectful to other peoples wishes, well mannered, and of course grateful. I was raised in the kitchen, and love getting the music going and cooking a big meal. Very tidy.

I'm definitely looking for an adventurous person to show me whats up in their area.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

This is my first time CouchSurfing. I am looking forward very much to experiencing all this has to offer me.

Interests

- Music (foreign, early 20th century, anything dreamy)
- Architecture
- Longboarding
- Walking through the streets at night with a group headed somewhere, and hearing that hum from the street lights and air conditioners.
- Sneaking onto rooftops to get the best view.
- Cooking and learning to prepare new dishes.
- Art History
- I love learning, and am open to anything anyone would want to teach me.

I love to talk to people about everything, some of my favorite topics are: religion, ancient civilization, America, and modernity.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

At 19 years old I funded a solo trip to Paris and London on my own. It was great to be able to do something like that alone, but I realized I'd have preferred company to share it with.

Teach, Learn, Share

I believe that the only person who can change someone is themselves. Life will always throw lessons your way, it's up to your inferences that determine how you'll utilize those lessons. Lessons aren't always the big things either. I think the most influential ones are our everyday interactions with people, be it strangers or friends, these are the moments that really shape us. I would love to be a positive interactive lesson in someone's life one way or another,
