About Me


To reconcile the wonders of the compassionate universe with the evils of human nature.


I'm just your everyday, average traveling Zen Buddhist CyberPunk Industrial music enthusiast. My interests include moshing,dumpstering, the Tao, beaches, sunshine and compassionate service to the universe and my fellow man.
I am a well-read and self-educated high school dropout and a conscientious objector to our capitalistic society. Also i have a neat o Mohawk that will likely be a different color by the time you read this.


The past and future only exist in the here and now as concepts. The only time is now. Do what is right and good now and there need be no concern for the future, and the past can no longer harm you. Do not offer resistance and you will not be pushed. Do not posses and you will not be robbed. Do not desire and you will not be disappointed. Love the universe in all of its forms.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate by being a kind, helpful soul. As a childhood abuse survivor i understand pain, and am glad to talk with people and listen. I also have a very strong work ethic, am very handy around the house. I am also a skilled cook whom specializes in asian cuisines, italian and improvising with whatever the hell is laying around in the kitchen.


Not a lot.


Punk, Grunge, Industrial (not goth, bleccch!) Digital Hardcore, Riot Grrrl, Classical. Mosh pits. Dumpsters. Zen, the Tao, Loving-kindness, being useful. Cooking, eating. Living.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ive survived on my own since thirteen, and despite being raised by wolves I am very well adjusted. Once I ate a 32 oz. steak. Pretty cool huh?

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach the Tao and zen practice. I would like to learn Japanese, the keyboards, electronic music sequencing. I am currently learning about electronics, specifically circuit bending and how to make a theremin, and hopefully enough theory in order to make interesting toys from stuff I find in the dumpster.
