About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Having an adventure every day

ABOUT ME

we were wandering professionals, traveling in a band of gypsies or homeless depending on which family member you asked (and on which side)...but NOW we have a home finally! He's the dentist, she's the lawyer and Nanuq is the best, sweetest, most amazing dog in the entire world. Recently we expanded our family and have adopted a new puppy, Diesel, who is the best, sweetest, most amazing puppy in the entire world. Please be aware that Nanuq's and Diesel's concepts of 'personal space' is that you will be ok with them invading yours….all the time. Patrick and I, of course, will intervene, but if you are shy about dogs--take this into consideration before sending us a request.

PHILOSOPHY

Everything is perfect just as it is. How you react to your own interpretation of life experiences determines the level of your own spiritual growth.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We host and we surf, we try to participate in couchsurfing community events, and we share our experiences with non-couchsurfers (to which we get mixed reviews.) However, we're happy to report that those that have participated in our adventures, forgot their reservations and embraced the idea of couchsurfing.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We have hosted surfers from all over and surfed in many different areas with a lot of different people. Some have become life-long friends and part of our couchsurfing family.

Interests

Salsa and bachata dancing, screen printing, motorcycles, fishing, surfing, hoop dancing, flying, reading, traveling, anything with costumes-we take costumes VERY seriously, wine--he's really into food

Music, Movies & Books

Rushmore, Princess Bride, Spaceballs, Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day, A Confederacy of Dunces, Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, Me talk pretty one day, The Magnetic Fields, Slightly Stoopid, Chopin...honestly the list could go on-

One Amazing Thing I've Done

All three of us (Nanuq included) slid down a 14K foot peak in Colorado to avoid a lightning storm that was complete with hail and snow.

Teach, Learn, Share

We can share hoop dancing, give some surf tips, share some vegan recipes, and we are open to learning about anything.

What I Can Share With Hosts

We love to cook for our hosts and bring gifts from our beach town to share.
