About Me


Less Stuff, More Life.


A Renaissance man! Eclectic interests and passions. A very caring person and great father.


Enjoy life, but tread lightly and recognize limitations.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In personal and business travel, I have often sought out private B&B listings. Not the expensive, luxurious hotel like properties, but mostly people who share a room or two in their home, encourage active, engaging conversation over breakfast or coffee, and some who even allow the household cat or dog to wander into the guests room at night.


Music, concerts, biking, skiing.

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't read enough, but the books I enjoy the most are about industrial history. I love reading about how people from the past brought mechanical, technological and scientific solutions into mainstream human society.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing the Grand Canyon by helicopter. Standing at the top of several ski runs in Colorado and Utah, looking out as far as you can see. The oceanfront and cliffs in Western South Africa. The mountains in Austria.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a problem solver. I seek out problems, and look for methodical solutions. My primary tool for problem solving is technology, but I also apply a liberal dose of mechanical experience.
