About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To erase all negativism in our society. Think positive.

ABOUT ME

I am just a simple man who like to meet up with people from all over. I am blessed with a gift of making friends and basically I am a people person.
I was once an exchange student in Australia through Lions Club international exchange program. It was a good experience. I attended university in the United States and my experience there has been really good and I am still in touch with my American friends from college. Since I have spent some years in the American South, I do feel like a Southerner at heart. Couchsurfing has given me this opportunity to play host and I am really enjoying it. I am grateful that each day I have something to look forward to and able to appreciate simple things in life! I am also involve with Amnesty International and a strong beliver of human rights to some extent. I am not anti establishment as I believe it is better to be well balance instead of being an extremist.

PHILOSOPHY

To say we love someone is to love till it hurts. Then this is called real love.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Been through the storm of the century in Asheville, North Carolina in spring of 1993. Saw a REAL tornado in Arkansas in 1994.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy sharing with my students that the world is really small and there is life beyond our comfort zones. I like to be an instrument of encouragement to people who needed it. Have seen so many couch surfers who are "drifters" and some know where they are heading to in life. Regardless, I want them to know that they have a friend, NOT just a one time host/surfer thingy.
