About Me


Use my thumbs, feet, and voice to stir the stew


I love hitchhiking, exploring the written word, and wandering around on long walks in the woods. I have a romantic crush on playful mischief, among other things. My home is with 20 people in a big lovely house and
I think I'm at the work of enlivening kid wisdom in myself, whatever that means. When making food I probably consistently perform culinary sacrilege.


Life is a playful dance, create what moves you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


(updated Nov '14)I haven't surfed for a few years but will get back to it in 2015...sometimes I sorta have my doubts about this site and that leads me to question whether I want to use it at all, but almost everyone I've met through CS has been wildly beautiful. These days I mostly host folks when the house has room.


Lots on both ends. Hosting in Bellingham, surfing Cascadia.


Writing, reading, hitchhiking, wild conversations on swingsets under the moon, playfulness, living freely with lots of people, strange circumstances,quirky art gifts, good hiding places, and the idea of childhood.
