Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Right now, I'm just looking for hosts when I go to conferences. Hopefully, I can soon reciprocate!
I have couchsurfed in Costa Rica, but nowhere else yet! (And I suppose doing ethnographic fieldwork is a little like couch-surfing...)
Also, I have good friends who swear by it, so I'm trying it out here in the US.
Traveling, music, ideas, conversation, books, In general: people, places, and things (in that order).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Teach, Learn, Share
I am an anthropologist, whatever that means. Literally, I suppose it means I have a professional, dilettantish interest in people; more specifically, I have an interest in that amalgam we call 'culture'. I'll talk to you about it, unless you'd rather not. :)
Even more specifically, my dissertation research project is about ex-machos (self-labeled) seeking spiritual transformation in religious and therapeutic groups. I lived in a small, rural town in northern Costa Rica for almost two years (over the course of a decade), spending time with informants in the way anthr-ists tend to do.
