Discover, create, wonder.
I like to make stuff. I ride my bike everywhere. I love books and orchards and the sound of rain. I also like frisbee, adventure and science. I live with my sweetest sweetheart.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I want to show people my world, and see their worlds too. Apartment currently genuinely too tiny to hold me, my sweetie and a surfer (i.e.: our couch = our bed). One day we will host...
I haven't yet couchsurfed via the Internet, but every time I've stayed on strangers' couches it's been for the best. I slept on the floor of a Mexico City apartment for a week, with a friend-of-a-friend who was the sweetest person alive and he inspired me to open up my own couch to others. We cooked together, talked, drank a little mezcal... I learned way more about Mexico staying with him than I ever could've at a hostel.
Bikes, books, running-jumping-climbing trees, cooking, dirt, sewing, salsa, singing, tinkering, drawing pictures, science, forests, rock and roll, history, accordion music, socks and jam.

Music, Movies, and Books
I like reading A LOT! I like "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance," "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" and "Everything is Illuminated" and of course everything Kurt Vonnegut Jr has ever written.
Movies: "Frances Ha", "The Orange Thief", "Band of Outsiders", "Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?"
I'll put anything danceable on my stereo, especially for doing dishes; stuff like Balkan Beat Box, Tina Turner, Elvis Costello, or Orishas. My sweetie likes Viking metal so if that's your thing, you've got a friend in him.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Climbing to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun!
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm good with plants and I can show you tricks to repair your bike. My sweetie is a Spanish teacher and can talk a blue streak about linguistics and plays the guitar beautifully. We like learning new recipes and languages.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Mad bike skills, excellent book recommendations, washing dishes...
