About Me

We are a fucking delight.
This is my profile, but if we are meeting up, you are staying with me, or I'm staying with you, my SO (37f) will be there too!

I like being helpful. People say I'm easy going/laid back. I can easily be a man of few words or the center of attention. I'll eat anything once.
Drinks and chit-chat are wonderful.
I'm an Atheist but love discussing religion. I love learning. Dive bars.
I have an affinity for music and Art. The Met is my favorite museum. Pretty open minded. Logical. I enjoy all music except country but I'm willing to listen if you think you can persuade me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Recently divorced so I'm now able to be myself again!
I want to travel more again and experience the attitudes/lifestyles of differing people.

"Let us endeavour so to live that when we come to die, even the undertaker will be sorry."
-Mark Twain


I hosted over 100 people in about four months and had a wonderful time.
I bought a one way ticket to China, had $300 bucks and a bag, and traveled almost 2 years hitting 26 countries.

I can say I enjoy both aspects equally. It's interesting and wonderful, meeting new people.


My favorite thing is hearing people discuss in detail and with enthusiasm the things they are interested in, especially if it is nerdy or useless.
