About Me


To explore the world, meet people and learn new and exciting things!


I have a diverse background and I look forward to sharing my experiences.


My personal philosophy:
I am a student of the world...

My philosophy of music (because I love it so much):
"Music is so naturally united with us that we cannot be free from it even if we so desired" - Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I always try to spread the word to help enhance the Couchsurfing project. And, I try to keep a GLOBAL TRAVELER'S MIND and interact with like minded people.


I have had a great experience staying with a Couchsurfer in PERU! Also, I was accepted to stay with someone in Panama, but, due to scheduling, I was unable to make it. However, I was accepted to stay with someone in Cali, Colombia, and, I will eventually be going! Also, stayed with a young lady CouchSurfer while in southern France.


ALL types of music, Traveling, Reading, Music Production, Out-of-Print CDs and Vinyl, Live Music, Quantum Mechanics, Racquetball, Squash, Cricket, Hiking...RUGBY!!!!
