About Me


Closely examine all the colors displayed in every morning's sunrise.


I am one of those terrible people that hates superficiality- (most people find that too intimidating.) I love getting to know new people and always seek to turn strangers into friends. I am.

Actually, I'm pretty quiet but I love having new experiences.

Life is merely a successive series of "now" moments.
There is no intelligence higher than kindness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed in Italy, (but had to pay for it.) I've hosted in Bangkok and enjoyed it.


Anything fun and exciting... I enjoy the beauty of nature, they play of children, the "high" of a challenge,....

I seek others to share being "in-the-moment" with and learn from their Aura.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can change the strings and tune-up your guitar. I can sample all of your delicious cooking and tell you what I like best- for me, no onions! If I open my home to you, it means that I am hoping to to share your "life-story" and develop a personal, intimate, lasting friendship.
