About Me


"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." -- Mahatma Gandhi


I believe in the concept of voluntary simplicity - which is great since for me it is not always voluntary. I am a nature lover and find myself most at peace among the trees.

I've worked seasonally for several years driving a horse and carriage giving tours of Mackinac Island, MI which has forbid automobile traffic since 1898. Being a fan of nature and bicycles, it's a lifestyle I thoroughly enjoy. One year I rode a beat up old bicycle to the island (St.Ignace technically - can't bike to an island) from New Orleans. That was the best road trip of my life.

I'm an optimist trapped in a cynic's body. I hate politics but I'm usually pretty informed. I've been disgusted by all of my politicians at some point or another, and can easily get caught on a soapbox about any number of issues. However, I'm starting to recognize there is duality in everything, and I try not to believe everything I think.


Find Purpose.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I share with people the goodwill and comradery that has been shared with me by the good people I've met through this website.


Couchsurfing has opened many doors that I did not know were even there. Providence Provides.



Music, Movies, and Books

I like happy/funny/inspirational movies, and I don't like sad/violent/fantasy movies (with the exception of documentaries). I like almost all music, and I like reading non-fiction material. Truth is stranger than fiction dontcha know?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I rode my rickety 10 speed bicycle 1700 miles from New Orleans to St.Ignace Michigan. That was the best 2 months of my life. Some people say that's amazing, other people would probably say that's pathetic.
