About Me

CURRENT MISSION

“Wherever there is a human being there is an opportunity for kindness.” ~Seneca

ABOUT ME

I am a professional humanitarian specializing in providing protection, camp management and legal aid to displaced populations in conflicts and natural disasters.

I grew up in a little village of 650 in New Hampshire and now I spend my life adventuring throughout the world and helping people as I go. I love making new friends, having fun, laughing, playing music, doing good things for people and discovering all the good things life has to offer.

I've just returned to Melbourne (Australia) with my wife, after a year together in Myanmar.

PHILOSOPHY

Love, compassion and kindness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Right now I am looking for a place to live in Melbourne (Australia). In the future I'll be happy to host people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've couch-surfed several times in Europe and had a very positive experience.

Interests

I love, love, love traditional music from all over the world. My specialty is Irish traditional music, which I play on wooden flute, tin-whistle and the bodhran, which is a traditional frame drum. Really though, I love music from all over the world and the way it brings people together in joy and celebration.
