About Me


Breathe, laugh, love, squirm,travel, taste, relax, see, learn, be left breathless, tread lightly, eat well, drink coffee in the sun, grow vegetables,swim,dive, sky dive,meditate, connect, touch, dance, rain, stretch, squirm. Repeat.


In a nutshell? I'm sarcastic and my humor is dry. I'm silly, I'm serious, I'm fun and I'm deep.

I think about things-not just accepting them at face value. I love to learn, I'm compassionate and I'm totally crass!


nothing is set in stone (for now)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a few times. Want to travel more and can't wait to surf!


I havent had a chance to couchsurf but would love to. I've hosted 3 people for a short time and had 1 long-er term couchsurfer.


My attention is fleeting and so i have many interests theatre,performance, movement based performance, reading, nature, gardening, nutrition, poetry, meditation, therapies, community upliftment, road-tripping. Oh god, I love beer and cheese.

Music, Movies, and Books
