About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living Life, enjoying the great city and meeting people from other cultures. It has been so enjoyable to be apart of couchsurfing meeting great people from all over. Both hosting and surfing.

ABOUT ME

a very social, friendly, open minded, neat, honest, and non-smoking guy here. I love living in nyc in my own place. I have been a professional musical theater actor/singer for the past 9 years. Now on a financial hiatus. I love the outdoors, nude beaches, theater/movies,tennis and anything to do with the arts.

I do have skype (on request) if care to chat and learn more.

PHILOSOPHY

treat people and their property with respect just as you would like them to treat you. Be thankful for what we are given and don't be afraid to share in the goodness.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have had a great time hosting people from all over the world. It has been a great experience. I have learned so much looking through other peoples eyes. For my first experience with cs, I had the opportunity to try a couch surf in Budapest two years ago. It was a real nice experience. I was able to learn about the culture and get good advice on things to do and see from my host. It was a much better option than going to an empty hotel room. This year I surfed all over Italy. What a blast. Thanks to all who hosted me.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

When growing up we used to always share beds, sleep on floors with large groups of relatives. I also had to do the same while on the road touring with shows, so couch surfing is not very foreign to me.

I indirectly have hosted my couch on many occasions for friends and fellow travelers through my friends and church. I have two friends who are avid couch surfer hosts and surfers when they go abroad. I had my first couch surfer officially through this site, and had a blast. I was bummed I wasn't able to spend more time visiting and showing him around. Now I have had hosted several fantastic surfers. Each and everyone is unique in their cultures and it has been grounding to learn from them all. I haven't had one bad experience yet. This is an incredible concept. Keep it going.

Interests

photography, painting, woodworking, tennis, volleyball, swimming, outdoors, movies/ theater, Yoga (of the au naturel kind recently) to name a small few

Music, Movies & Books

all kinds of movies except horror all kinds of music except punk and rap with a large collection of musicals since that is one of my professions. Spy thrillers, and science fiction (the old kind, not the new with fantasy mix).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Nothing too exciting. Only been to Greece, London, Jamaica, Budapest, Vienna, Prague, Berlin along with all 50 USA states.

Teach, Learn, Share

They call me the renaissance man since I do photography, oil paint, wood working, cook/bake, know computers,prograaming, engineering, the list goes on. I have tutored calculus, physics, and taught tap dancing, so I have a lot of varied skills I could teach. I"m also told I'm a good tour guide in the Big Apple.
