About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet some CSers.

ABOUT ME

I am an adventurer at heart. I am happiest when I am in a good setting, exploring, digging, or experiencing something new.
My education is primarily professional IT, and military engineering. I am a computer programmer, was an army engineer, school teacher, researcher for a DoD firm, and a student in the broadest sense of the word after i left college.

PHILOSOPHY

Do it, have fun, send a postcard home.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I realized that i did CS type stuff for a while before I heard of CS. Even on small scale, when I am new at a job or a school I do much better if I take time to explore on my own, and when opportunity presents itself, do so with a likeminded individual.
I am new to CS. If I can help ye, write an email or call.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Sent some emails, gave info I could to help those who asked.

Met some nice people on the east coast. Very impressed with openness and wealth of experiences i have got to see.

Summer 2012 update.
Trip to DC/college park and Fort Lee was a lot of fun and productive. Big thank you to all my hosts. I got to meet people from different walks of life, who invited me in, and made me feel at home.

Interests

Self development, psychology, history, hiking, biking, swimming, photography, and of course - exploring!!!

Music, Movies & Books

I did a lot of studying and reading in history. I valued primary sources, so many things I read were journals people kept, reports governments kept, a lot of military day to day stuff. It was truly an amazing mozaik of information.

Books by successful enterpreneurs and not so famous psychologists: Jack Canfield, Esther/Jerry Hicks, Roger Elliot, Swami Sachitananda, Vladimir Zhikarentsev, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer.

I reread a lot of highschool classics a few years back and really liked them: Fahrenheit 451, catcher in the rye, bunch of Shakespeare plays. Its funny that I did not really did not appreciate them as a kid, but loved them as an adult.

I like independent films, foreign films, documentaries. Positive good stuff.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Looking at stars by the campfire on a mountain top in central mass, where my friend and i would hike.

seeing heavy equipment transports(HET) trucks make turns in middle of the night. I got to stand right next to them and heard metal on metal sounds I did not hear before or since.

Sharp cliff dropoffs from the first time i hiked mountain Tom.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy all kinds of people. Smiling, energetic, knowledgeable in something specific, are all a big plus, and are very much appreciated.

In friends i value honesty, good will, and dependability. I value being a good friend myself.

In communications i aim to be authentic, humorous or goal oriented.
