About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To have fun wherever I go!

ABOUT ME

I am adventurous, outgoing, positive, open minded, crazy.

I'm not easily offended so it's usually easy to get along with me.

When I'm in a different city I like to meet up with other csers and/or my host and try to live a day in the life of a local. I can also be very independent and am good at planning things to see myself.

PHILOSOPHY

The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination. ~Don Williams Jr.

Be kind, because everyone is fighting their own battle.

If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Interests

You!

Traveling of course!

Fooooooood, photography, film....life....schtuff

Music, Movies & Books

Chuck Palahniuk is the bomb! Shel Silverstein is a great classic. I also like autobiographies (Koren Zailckas, Carl Reiner) and fiction/thriller novels (Monica Drake, Dean Koontz).

I can listen to any type of music really but when I turn on the radio it goes to Alt Nation.

I have a wholehearted passion for film. You'll see this if you surf on my couch. :) Favorites: When Harry Met Sally, Lila Says, Lie With Me, Boondock Saints, Amelie, La Vita E Bella, Everything is Illuminated, Into the Wild, etc etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Toured Africa: Nairobi to Cape Town for 2.5 months. Bungee Jump at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. Sky Dive in Swakopmund, Namibia. Sandboarding in Namibia, White Shark Cage Dive in Cape Town, earned my open water scuba certification. Pet lions and cheetahs. Lions and Leopards and Buffalo oh my!

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to learn more about photography. I consider myself an amateur photographer.

I can teach you how to drink and play some bar games, darts and pool. :) I like to hang out in the city. I love to cook and share meals with guests and hosts. I don't know what I know...lots of stuff. It's all in there somewhere.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Zest for life!!! I love to talk over good food and good drink. Share experiences and provide advice for future travels or life lessons.
