About Me


Setting up a charity USA in Kenya to do HIV and AIDS prevention education in East Africa.


I used to have a house and things to fill it. But, since I travel constantly. I've decided to ditch the house and live on the road. Well, I mean, not on the actual road, that would be uncomfortable and truckers toss jugs of urine out the window. No one wants to live like that. But I am booking gigs around the country, and visiting friends and family, and checking out roadside attractions.


Trying to live in the moment, make lists, make people smile, be cool. I am most comfortable when I am in a brand new place. I like that most of my small talk conversations include someone saying "are you f^%&^%ing with me?" or "is that true?" "Oh you aren't kidding?" "I can't tell if you are making this up." People just don't often believe that I get to do what I get to do. There is fun to be had, let's have it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Um, sorry, I found this site very late in the game. I've had a killer spare bedroom for YEARS, and now that I am hopping on here, I'll no longer have my house. You can sleep in my car if you want.


Worlds' Largest Things, Roadside Attractions, Oddball Museums, Antiques, I also am mostly friends with clowns, jugglers, magicians, mimes, stand up comedians, and very strange people.
