About Me


To see more of the world's couches


Quiet at first but charming after you get to know me. Snarky. Generous. Down to earth. Left leaning politically. Gay--but love sports, beer, and hanging with my straight buddies. Love politics and history and exploring. I play tennis and darts and bocce with leagues in DC.


live and let live; don't take it too seriously; when in Rome; you can't take it with you; life's too short.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


None yet. The requests I've received had bad timing and I haven't made any quite yet. But plan to soon.


History. Politics. Sports (tennis and football). Beer. Good conversation and good food. Travel.

Music, Movies, and Books

anything historical--mostly European.
