About Me


YOU HAVE A PLACE TO STAY * FOR SURE * if you can assist in the project AFTER NOV 9TH when I get back from THAILAND !

I am looking for adventures outside the city such as hikes , yoga, morning WORK OUTS, growing food , lunch outings, snorkeling, or North Shore day trips.

I work in the event industry and work EVENINGS AND WEEKENDS OFTEN .
*** I am most free Mon, Tues, Wed., and Fri 9a.m. - 3 p.m. ! ***


Good things come to those who take them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've wished there was a way to figure out right away if new people that you meet are into travel (it would be ideal if they had a stamp on their forehead). CS is great for that.


Gardens that GROW FOOD , permaculture, seed sharing.
Stand up Paddle boarding ( come to Kailua and I'll take you!)
Fishing ( if anyone wants to invite me on your boat, please DO )
Any other Hawaii outdoor activity!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw lava SPILLING down the side of the arenal volcano in Costa Rica. The rocks would hit the side and pop open ... it looked like upside down fireworks.
