About Me


looking for a group of folks in california that are living off the grid... as much as possible, with an emphasis on sustainability and a post petrol world


have loved traveling since i was a kid. have been to over 20 countries and plan on adding to those adventures here in 2010-2011.particularily asia this winter. lived a pretty unconventional life. at one time i went from living on my 40 acres in rural wisconsin with no pluming to modeling in NYC. New York being the place where I find the most diverse eccentric intelligent people of anywhere i have been. just too much concrete and noise for me. I feel like i'm a citizen of the planet. Am finding that my interests, knowledge and skills that were deemed "fringe" 15 years ago are starting to show up on msn news articles. tend to prefer people that have done enough traveling to realize that they are not what the television tells them. which in my county of origin, is a small percentage. could use, and would love to have in my life a woman that would compliment and balance my unconventional aspirations, which there seems not to be too many!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Wish i would have found out about CS sooner! definately plan on hosting other travelers when i settle down someday. hopefully it will be amongst a fleet of sailboats, sailing around the south pacific doing humanitarian work, or somthing like that. or maybe on a organic farm, wellness retreat center.


none, keep hearing good things though


electric blues guitar, shamanism, green building, biodynamic farming, the power of now, meeting intelligent passionalte people from all over the world,

Music, Movies, and Books

the power of now

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

watched terry dunn, a chi gung master, pushing and pulling a t-shirt...30 feet away from him.

saw stevie ray vaughan play on the night that he died

have been able to access a profound sense of GRATITUDE, for the support i received from western doctors in flawlessly saving my eye from a nail that went into it.
