About Me


Boldly go where no one has gone before - in conversation, on a forest hike, anywhere!


The answer is always developing with each new day, but I always feel most fulfilled when I am making the effort to serve through making the best effort to support the environment, teaching, talking with a neighbor, or in any way taking time for another.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have always camped or did homestays when I traveled. I have been so lucky to always meet wonderful people with big hearts.


Everyone I've stayed with has been so generous.


clarinet, improvisational music, knitting, ceramic sculpture, gardening, poodles, hiking, biking, nature....
