About Me


Hi, I'm Jo. I'm fairly new to Maine. I spend a lot of time cooking new things, finding new music to listen to, and making things out of fiber. At the moment I am enjoying learning French, building up my new Cilo bicycle, and watching movies from the 1960s.

I'm also on warm showers:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I joined Couchsurfing before my first big bike tour down the west coast. Then I used it again for a bike tour of the south east states, North Carolina to Louisiana. I also spent 3 months in South Africa, and Couchsurfing helped me connect with people in Johannesburg.

I hosted often when I lived in a big, messy community house in Bellingham, WA, but for the past couple years I haven't been able to.


Most of my experiences have been pleasant and some have been amazing. The rest make good stories, at least.


mix tapes and animation. card games and house shows. buttermilk biscuits and free flowers.
