About Me


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


zero. need some friends and experiences to see what this is all about.


none. at first i joined as a joke. never thought it would work. what the hell. nothing ventured-nothing gained. in the beginning i had no opportunity to travel. now i make opportunities.


Chess,scuba diving, photography, aviation and children. tutor illiterate adults how to read. literacy is the key. it separates us from the animals.

Music, Movies, and Books

i'm all over the place. i'm a gemini and cannot sit still for one thing for one minute. with no favorite author or book i walk through the library and check out half of the library after i read all the newspapers and periodicals. but, i only read non-fiction. i have to leave with more knowledge than i came with. i crave learning.
i once saw a movie as improbable in a two hour time span. from that time on it ruined all movies for me.
i am still seeking revenge for the eighth grade dance where i was deeply humiliated. so music is out.
i don't seem to have the need for commercial entertainment that grips the nation. i put most of my energy into making and maintaining friendships.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

i reviewed other profiles. i would like to write something that plays well with other people and would attract them to me. but i must tell you the truth. my life pivots around one moment in time. when i saw my daughter born,heard the first cry and felt the first heartbeat. nothing enriches your life like bringing a new life into this world. the miracle of human birth is matched by nothing in this universe.

Teach, Learn, Share

each one teach and travel. a smile will get you farther than an economy car.
