About Me


Adventure. Trying to finish a novel. Heading west for the moment.Got everything I own in a car.


Grew up overseas, Sri Lanka till I was 3, then Cairo till 12 or so, after that in the USA near washington DC. Done development work in Rwanda, Ecuador, and visited a ton of different places. Addicted to travel, can't stay in one place. Studied English because I had nothing better to do, now I'm motorcycling across North America, after that I don't know. I'm open to everything, a little bit of a buddhist and a philosopher, and not very good at either. The best part of traveling is meeting great people.


I'm open. If an opportunity presents itself, take it. If you meet a wonderful person, get to know them. If you think of a poem, even if its crap, write it. Forgive everyone (including yourself). Look closely at everything, and accept the parts that make your life better.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting new people, making friends along the way.


Stayed with people who did CS before, but never was on the website. Figured i'd jion.


Everything. Motorcycles. Cooking. Eating. Music. Dancing. Nature. Art. Poetry. Writing. Random acappella in the rain. Spontaneous tap dancing sessions at midnight. You name it. (I can't actually tap dance).
