About Me


To help others see the world, and to do the same. Life is short and it's best to see the whole world while you can!


I'm a fun-loving guy who is infatuated with this planet and everything that is in it.


Humans should be trying to live in harmony with this planet, each other, and our non-human fellow inhabitants. But we are not, and it concerns me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I couchsurfed a little in 2010, and I have hosted a few people at my little suburban house over the years.


I couchsurfed two nights in Hungary, two in Slovakia, and one in Slovenia. It's great!


Watching sports, drinking beer, eating good food. Travel, travel, travel. Talking to people from far-flung places. Exploring new cities. Watching Australian football. Planning my next trip!

Music, Movies, and Books

I absolutely love cinema, and there are about two dozen films that I can watch over and over again. Books are too slow, I prefer movies. Music, I like classical and hard rock.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Started my own trivia business!
