About Me

I host people on Trustroots and Warmshowers. I believe everyone is a philosopher. The favorite compliment I have been given is, "You have interesting friends."

I have filled out about a zillion "about me" boxes, ama

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because it's still a great place to meet travelers!


The history of languages is cool. I like riding my bike through fall mornings, caressed by falling leaves.

I've listed "mushrooms" as an interest, but let me be clear. I like to go into forests and take pictures of neat mushrooms. I like to pick chanterelle and boletes, and eat them for supper. :D

Music, Movies, and Books

I like movies, but I only watch them in an opportunistic kind of way -- I don't really keep track of them. I kinda wish I did, because so many movies have truly been inspiring!

I used to read a lot of sci-fi. I've read some non-fiction that was nice, and a bit of literature. I do like Hemingway, Michener, and John McPhee. I'd love to spend more time with books.

As for music, heavy metal!
