About Me

NOT HOSTING UNTIL AUGUST UNLESS YOU WANT TO HELP WITH HOUSE PAINTING AND REPAIRS!!!!! I don't host for more than 3 days. I get sooooo many requests. Special interest in native Spanish or Portuguese speakers and capoeiristas. Conscious guests who bring in groceries to share or take out their own trash are so appreciated, for example.


The practice of coming and going versus beginning and ending.


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!



Why I’m on 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.

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 do headstands...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!
