About Me


Propagate kirtan yoga (chanting Names of God) far & wide


Left university to spend a year with the V.I.S.T.A. program in Atlanta Georgia. By the end of that year I left the country rather than go to Vietnam. Spent more than a month each in France, Canary Islands, Greece, Malaysia, Bali, and Thailand. Worked on a kibbutz in Israel for a year, and lived in Australia for 5 years, where I became a Krishna devotee. Have traveled to India 20 plus times, spending an average of five weeks each trip.


I don't want suffering in my life, and I recognize that my suffering is the karmic reaction to suffering I have caused to other living entities in the past. Thus in my own self interest, I want to be as kind as possible to all entities.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host initially, would be interested in couches in India or in homes of NRI's worldwide.


None as of yet, joined August 2010.


Running (have run 32 marathons), juicing for health, Sanskrit chanting, performing pujas, cooking, preparing power points for public presentation (visit Itunes to download up to 65 Utah Krishna Sunday Talks). Enjoy writing scripts and directing dramas. Learning Hindi & harmonium. Would like to get better at mrdanga drumming.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have seen this temple in Spanish Fork evolve over 20 years from an impractical notion to a substantial main stream Utah institution. Living the dream.....

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to live in a world where everyone sings for the glorification of God (kirtan). I'm willing to share what little I know of the harmonium. Every Sunday I give power points on conquering anger, depression, complaining, loneliness, breaking bad habits etc. No one listens to these talk more than me and no one needs to hear them more than me.
