About Me


Find Enjoyment in Travel....or make a good attempt.


My work in energy efficiency engineering gives me satisfaction for problem solving. Mostly, I help businesses reduce their energy consumption by recommending improvements to the air conditioning equipment. I enjoy travel in the US for work because I often get to explore new areas. The work is flexible to accommodate my exploring habits. I have a huge social life beyond work and would like to share it with visiting CSers. I have a few bikes, so we can go for rides.


All meaning is Subjective;therefore, I intend to enjoy making-meaning. Cultural pluralism rewards.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I joined and attended the million member event in Golden Gate Park during the same week. I want to host for one to three days or maybe longer depending.


I like the idea of CS as a chance to meet many more travelers visiting from many more cultures than I am able to visit myself.


I live life as adventure and enjoy many outlets to challenge myself. Interests include: sailing, travel, cooking, road biking, mountain biking, music concerts, talking with others, reading, and exploring the nightlife in San Francisco.

Music, Movies, and Books

My Pandora.com is seeded with a Florence and the Machine's channel.

"The Fugitive", Harrison Ford unjustly accused of killing his wife, must find the real one-armed killer while avoiding Tommy Lee Jones.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sailing from Oahu Hawaii to San Francisco in a 47 foot sailboat taking 19 days on the water.

Teach, Learn, Share

Sailing: I know how, when, and why to tie sailing knots. Very good for moving such as heavy TVs from a second story balcony.

Countries I’ve Visited

Antigua and Barbuda, Cuba, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Myanmar, Spain, Switzerland

Countries I’ve Lived In

Ireland, Scotland, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States
