Why I'm on Couchsurfing


professional surfer - wannabe host


Couch-surfed, lawn-surfed, barn-surfed, bridge-surfed; I've had a fair stretch of the planet beneath my backside.


writing, reading, photography, walking the sorts of distances most people would take an airplane for, scrabble, newspapers, rust belt cities, stubbornly resisting the 21st century, backpacking, philosophy, Thai life insurance commercials, Northern New England, tea, classical music, napping in public places, live music, California, crafting elaborate scenarios, milling around hospitals guessing the illnesses of outpatients, doing things in places where they were never intended to be done, Tom Petty music videos, Iowa, found poems

Music, Movies & Books

Let's keep this simple.I like:- colorful or bold movies where each shot could stand alone as a composition- music where the artist has done something genuinely musical and original- books with pages that I have to physically turnmaybe this will help:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhARR-zmTCE
