About Me


Broaden our horizons, meet new people, make a difference, and live a good life.


I have many longtime friends, I enjoy traveling, I am learning the guitar (slowly), I love learning and I love life. If I won the lottery, I would return to university to obtain a PHd in Psychology, which isn't going to happen because I don't buy lotterty tickets. I have a television, but I rarely use it. Our television has rabbit ears. Music and books are food for the soul. I love my wife and my dog, in that order.


Life is good, enjoy it. Memories of your big house or your nice car will not comfort in your old age, but the people you've met, loved, and laughed with will. It brings more joy to give than to recieve.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


All I have done so far is donate a bit of money, but I hope to help in other ways in the future.


None. Hopefully that will change.


Psychology, education, travel, history, photography, food, and wine.
