About Me

CURRENT MISSION To see and learn, and advocate for social and environmental justice

ABOUT ME I live In an 1890’s worker’s cottage on the near east side of Detroit near Eastern Market. I am an artist and landscaper/gardener in the Detroit area.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I primarily host, as I have found it quite difficult to secure a host when I am traveling. With all my trying, I have only been able to surf once.


I feel like the CS community attracts great people. That being said, I appreciate good communication about arrivals. I also appreciate a heads up if you have sent me a request that I accept, but you find alternate accommodation.

I try to respond to every request.
