About Me


creative cartography.


I love the San Jose Sharks, meeting people who like the Sharks, Talking about the Sharks, Dressing up like the Sharks, and finger painting.


To live for some future goal is pointless. It is the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love hosting and making the people staying with me go on asinine errands or drag them to some awkward party and when people do that to me in return.


Couch surfing is the only way I travel anymore.


People and dogs. Dogs mostly.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
