About Me

I'm hilarious.

I work at a sex shop in the suburbs, for now, getting paid to talk about the things that most people won’t mention. Would like to continue doing so; less focus on profit, more on health and education. Currently exploring more ways (academic and occupational) to satisfy this drive.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Everything should be free.

Providing & sharing safe spaces for a number of years now. Finding, knitting together a misfit global family.

I like to keep in touch and can possibly introduce you to people you’ll love.


entertainment, fermented foods, research, drag, free furniture, games (card, board, mind), plants, cathartic dancing, sex ed, cooking dinner, storytime

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a lot to say about these things (in person).

We got a projector and screen for xmas so come armed with movie recommendations.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once talked my way out of an attempted robbery?

What I Can Share with Hosts

Jokes, mostly, but if you've never made your own sauerkraut I can teach you how. I'm also pretty good at giving advice, but not necessarily setting a good example.

Oh yeah, and we all know people all over the place now, right? So, a lifetime membership to our wild tribe.
