About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am exploring what makes the world--and society--tick, both in my work and in my travels.

ABOUT ME

Music lover, into artsy things and intellectual things both. Occasional filmmaker. Recently been taking Bhangra dance lessons so I can be in one of those Bollywood movies one day.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm new to the site but interested in contributing to the community.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None yet...but will soon, I hope.

Interests

Playing music, making films, reading about how the world works, travel, my hometown baseball team (Red Sox), snorkeling and hiking.

Music, Movies & Books

Wilco, Flaming Lips, Radiohead, The Meters, Ozomatli. I love it when someone blends music styles from different parts of the world.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a jack of all trades, though that has probably kept me from being an expert in any one thing. Music, sports and art are my interests, and I can probably share some of my passions with you. My work is all about studying broad global trends, and I have worked in many areas: non-profit, economic development, technology, transportation, energy. So, we'll probably find something interesting to talk about!

Countries I've Visited

Argentina, Austria, China, Costa Rica, Cuba, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Korea, Republic of, Mexico, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In
