About Me

COUCHSURFERS: I get sooooo many requests. Special interest in native Spanish speakers and capoeiristas. But don't get discouraged if you aren't- we might be best friends who haven't met!

CURRENT MISSION

The practice of coming and going versus beginning and ending.

ABOUT ME

Broken Portugues~ Cria-lo, nao compra-lo! Compartilha o que pode! Procura explosoes do sabor e das orelhas!

English: Stretch it out. Make it, dont buy it. Share what you can. Seek flavor and aural explosion.

Espanol: Hagalo- no lo compras. Compartir lo que puedes. Busca explosiones de sabor, de las orejas, y mas. Estira!

PHILOSOPHY

JOUISSANCE.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When I'm not gypsying around, I open my home to curious travelers.
To share the joy of laying down the pack, taking a shower or nap and acquiring tips from localites is life's treat.
When surfing, I love to cook, spend time with hosts if they are interested, or otherwise express gratitude for their willingness to put me up.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
I've got a home again and might be able to have you- although I am SO busy and don't go out much during the week.
Couple of years ago, I surfed with some true gems in Brasil. Saudade for my CS familia and gaggle of hosts. I've hosted a handful of travelers (through Couchsurfing and random encounters) from Mexico, England, New Zealand, Spain and several states in the US. I also surfed in Hawaii and Arkansas.
One of my best friends was a surfer at my place in Chicago a few years ago. I love CS!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I placed my fingers inside the jaw of a massive gator whilst sitting atop its body. i lifted its head, felt him thrash side to side, heard him hiss and viewed his thick gums and clenched teeth.

In December of 2012, I went on a 1 month end of the world road trip down the coast of Mexico with 2 friends in a 1965 VW bug, rarely exceeding 40 km/hour. No radio...but with a guitar, sandy beaches, epic lake hikes and a Bart Simpson homemade puppet. I landed a chef job in Guatemala and lived there for a year.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to cook especially New Mexican style! Stuffed bell-peppers, red chile enchiladas...How to stretch and screenprint...a little bit about community organizing, how me and a pal made a Free School...all the swimming strokes..living cheaply in Chicago..English. How to build a fire, or treat sucking chest wounds.
What can you teach me!? I can't wait!
