I'm much more interested in you but, sticking to the topic, let me say that I love to share stories and to show people this wonderful place where I live. I'm motivated and inspired by the variety of life. I really appreciate the connections I've made with people while exploring the globe and look forward to more in the future. I prefer spontaneous adventures to places I've never been, so naturally I love this community!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I love meeting new people, and that is part of the reason I travel. The chance to meet and learn from an adventurous traveler is an opportunity I don't want to miss! Once a month I host an event at the Laguna Beach Artwalk which features dozens of gallery exhibits with free music and wine.
I have couchsurfed the Western half of the USA, parts of Canada, Spain, England, Australia, Sweden, Finland, and Germany. One time I was couchsurfing in the mountains in Lake Tahoe, California during the winter. The owner did not pay the electricity bill so the power was cut. Things got very cold very quickly. We all had to sleep huddled around the fire for a few days and wake up every few hours to add more wood.
I enjoy conversation, cooking, hiking, all things history and science, snowboarding, skateboarding and being a great big brother to my 6 younger brothers and sisters. Always try to learn and progress.
