About Me


"mom, when you get old will you cut your hair short like a grandma?"


I am a 27 year old boy. I grew up in Minnesota.

I have recently had some of the greatest jobs that the earth has ever seen...

I have a hard time not traveling.

I used to have opinions about things but I recently found out that that is silly. but I guess that's just my opinion.

A few years ago I rode my brand new, used 1982 Honda Nighthawk across the great nation of the United states of America... what a trip it surely was.

This summer i am taking my second moto on a trip

It turns out that I am really happy.

I sound like a corny old man when I try to describe myself...

I am a teacher at a middle school in Brooklyn. Yesterday I received a package in the mail and a 5th grader said "whats in it? WWE figurines?" When I said no he said "then underwear." I like my job


Binker's brave as lions when we're running in the park;
Binker's brave as tigers when we're lying in the dark;
Binker's brave as elephants. He never, never cries...
Except (like other people) when the soap gets in his eyes.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Getting settled in in New York. Hosting to come.


Its my favorite thing that i am a part of. I love it. We all have friends in any city we go to. That is at least as liberating as boxer-briefs.


I like people, bad stories, listening... I like to dance- really to anything but mostly mediocre disco and the Ramones- I can shake it all night. I like to travel, make pancakes, eat chocolate, play soccer, play dodgeball, play basketball, run, Backgammon, I have a disgustingly large love for children. It started a few years ago and has not stopped yet. I am completely baby-crazy and I can't wait to have my own some day. I like walking but only in unfamiliar places. I like to swim but am awful at it and scared of sharks, even in freshwater. Someday soon I am going to start a T Rex cover band. I like shaving but don't have to very often. I like trees so big they blow your mind. I like being read to-especially Dr. Seus... butchering the Spanish language. eating guacamole. eating in general. my mom's cookies. my cookies. your cookies. cookies. my new motorbike. I am obsessed with the American Diner. Memphis, Nearly everywhere that i go. Mexico. Hunter S Thompson. Climbing mountains. New York Pizza. oh and I like you.

Music, Movies, and Books

Bruce Springsteen and Pitbull

I like mediocre B movies. Anything with Bruce Campbell, The Warriors (my favorite), Santo vs the vampire women, Adam West Batman series, How high, Purple Rain, Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown. The hustler, The Red Shoes, Nights of Cabiria... Movies are good but I would probably rather just watch the Twilight Zone.

I can barely read, but anyway- Brenden Behan´s, Borstal Boy, Mrs. Dalloway, A brave New World, The Giving Tree, Now We Are Six, Catcher in the Rye, Frannie and Zoe, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Song of Myself by Whitman, The Sun also rises and other self-serving books written by white American men.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I built a giant nest out of leaves with a 7 year old named Anjuli. It is gone now but she is not. neither am I.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you a lot of things that you shouldn't do while traveling across America. Why it is both the greatest and worst country in the world. And which states have the best diners.
