About Me


Have the wisdom and experience of an 80 year old.....NOW!


I believe in a minimalistic life style(doing more with less), a naturally healthy lifestyle(for myself and the planet), and being open minded. Some say I am optimistic and sincere. I love taking risks and exploring. I try to live my life like an adventure. I am not religious, but I respect everyone who is. I like helping people without expecting anything in return.

I share the same respect for my body and the planet. I believe in sustainable practices for both. True wealth is health.

I believe we need money to survive but not to live. The three biggest commodities in life are time, health, and relationships. Without these, there is no point in living. But time is the most important. If people used their 40-60 hour work weeks to try and attain these three things, the world would be a better place.

There is very little I would not try or do at least once. I love experiencing anything and everything. I can spend a night partying and dancing or quietly reading a book. I have a wide range of interests.

I am openly friendly to everyone and don't judge. Every person has something beautiful to share and I love finding out what that is.


Minimalism and simplicity. I think Bruce Lee said it best, “One does not accumulate but eliminate. It is not daily increase but daily decrease. The height of cultivation always runs to simplicity.”

Give what you want to get. The key to living is giving. Happiness along with everything else is a choice. The only difference between an adventure and ordeal is your attitude. Whatever the mind can Conceive and Believe it can Achieve. Once the mind accepts, the body adapts.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and help out anyway I can.


I used cs on 5 continents and nothing but amazing people and experiences


I love culture, meeting new people, traveling, and learning. When it comes to learning, I'm like a sponge and try to absorb as much as I can. New languages are cool.

I am a big advocate of natural health and raw foods. But I won't say I am a raw foodist or vegetarian because then it limits me from soooo many tasty foods. So, I eat whatever I want whenever I want.

I love nature, beaches, gardens, friendly animals, and natural beauty. Of the man made things, I like art, history, and the Internet machine thingy.

Sports: Snowboarding, surfing, skateboarding, kite surfing, soccer, tennis, hiking, ping pong, yoga, and cooking
