About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Moving to Nashville! Jazzfest in May!

ABOUT ME

Feel free to drop me a line if you're coming to Nashville, or if you just want a friend on CS. :)

PHILOSOPHY

I came to this world with nothing, and I leave with nothing but love. Everything else is just borrowed. (Mike Skinner)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was once caught in a thunderstorm on top of Roan Mountain in Tennessee - absolutely beautiful/electrifying.

Teach, Learn, Share

I actually used to teach beginner to intermediate saber fencing, and I am very interested in teaching English abroad. Additionally, I can teach a little (tiny) bit about computers, guitar/bass, chess, and fighting games.

I'm looking to learn how to cook unique and/or local dishes, do basic handyman work, surf, fly a plane, any martial art, forage, snowboard, and speak in any language that you can teach me.
