About Me




I love people of all kinds. I've been bouncing from place to place for a couple years now. Just soaking up life and trying to sponge what nuance, what myriad beauties, what fleeting or stable joys I can. Bumbling about, the further I go the more deliriously, madly, wondrously lost I am.


live hard, laugh as much as i can, and listen deeply to the stories around me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing, hosting, posting, connecting, trading stories.


Couchsurfing is both revelation and revolution. It is the Digital Age's antidote to contemporary xenophobia and general social apathy.


Writing, piano, experimental travel, meeting folks who share my worldview and folks with totally new/different worldviews.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movie: 1st Place goes to The Adventures of Baron von Munchausen
Willow takes second place.
Memento is up there too

Music: Lately I've been digging Beirut, Sufjan, and Lhasa

Books: One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Foer, and almost everything palahniuk

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In Mexico I had a family of total strangers take me into their cinderblock house for a couple days while my friend was imprisoned. After they helped bail him out, this family wouldn't let us cook, clean, or do anything except hold their outrageously adorable baby. That was amazing.
