About Me


swallowing clouds, burping brilliance. to create and foster community. to eat anything and enjoy most of it. being light, and finding promise in the darkness. to challenge myself and others.


i like people, new communities, exciting places, exciting times. try to never postpone joy. want to always be learning.
excited about cultural exchange; i really enjoy that space when you know you like what's going on, and you think you've probably just learned something, but you realize you are still such a little baby.

always wished i was a painter. i mean, we are all painters, but... i'd like to be a painter that really paints.

i'm pretty laid back, easy going guy. world issues concern me. people inspires me. art motivates. freedom and the responsibilities that come with are important to me.


communication is key. honor, compassion. sharing.
not why, but how.
how? live well.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


interested in giving back the kindness that has been shown to me. surprised so many times by the compassion of strangers, opening up my own space only makes sense.


couch surfed for a long while before i knew of the site, and since have had wonderful experiences.


music, cooking, eating, dumpsters with food in them, games, revelry, song and dance, banjos, making new friends, loving, the ocean, mountains, the road, sunny afternoons, warm nights, snow, camping, hiking, wilderness, finding time.
