About Me

I am starting to travel more after taking a few years off to focus on other areas. I have made it through 26 countries so far, mostly Asia. There was a lot of business travel in my past. Now I am looking forward to leisure travel and exploring new areas.

At home you will most likely find me cooking something with a glass of champagne nearby. Living in Chicago, it is also fun to follow all of the up and coming chefs on the nights I don't cook. Tasting menus rock!

I am also a Reiki Master and really enjoy sharing the loving energy whenever I get a change. I learned Reiki with I got my Dane to offset the health problems they often have. She loves getting energy work. So far so good on the health front.

I grew up in the foothills of North Carolina. So a southern twang comes with me. If you can't understand me, I am fine reverting to signs or charades ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like the idea of meeting new friends on my trips. Hotels get so sterile after a while. Why not swap stories and roam the city with people that know the area? I'd rather know I left the city with new friends that I may meet again on another continent at another time.

I rare for me to think back on the places I've been and remember the monuments. I seldom forget the people I met along the way...


good food, good wine (preferable bubbles), anything to do with healing work.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I illegally climbed and camped out on the Great Wall of China near where it meets the sea so that some girlfriends and I could practice our version of naked Tai Chi at sunrise.
