Settling in to my new home on Robinwood St. in Grixdale Farms(Caldean Town,) & fixing up said home. Getting my art projects going again. Finishing my most recent demo. Mostly I'm burnt out from working as a dishwasher & don't do any of that but that's the goal... er... mission.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i host and surf

Positive. I think CS is a noble idea and it helps bridge gaps that direly need to be bridged, & helps the world become safer funner and freer.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love music. I'm particularly into African music, Jazz, Blues, old timey music. 60's hippy music. Blues, Soul, Reggae. Always excited to hear new music. Enjoy movies that are well written acted directed etc. Kurosawa is a favorite, especially Yojimbo and Seven Samurai.
I've been getting really into Moondog recently!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived at Occupy Wallstreet for 40 days then walked from NYC to DC & from Richmond VA to Chappel Hill NC barefoot with Occupy Marches, then walked across most of NC & Half of SC by myself after that... just for the hell of it. Also because I lost my wallet in DC. It all worked out relatively well.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll show you art objects I've made and listen to your story. I will try to respect you for the god/ant/star/human driftwood that you are. I'll probably cook some stir-fry/veggie hash. I can teach basic crochet, dreamcatcher weaving, patchwork, & share tips on clay sculpting & other art media.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I usually share food or something artsy &or crafty. I can ramble on(and on, and on) about various things.

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, Ecuador, Italy, Jamaica, Peru, United Kingdom, United States, Vatican City State

Countries I’ve Lived In
