About Me


live, laugh, love....


I spend about 1/2 the year (summertime) in Canada (May to October) .. part of the time I spend at my house in Kingston and the remainder I live aboard my boat in Toronto at Ontario Place. In the other 1/2 of the year (November to April), I travel to Asia, mostly spending time in Thailand, but also traveling to other countries in that part of the world. I offer to host other CS's and whichever place I may be at, at the time, so feel free to send me a request and I will let you know if I can accommodate you.

i'm a relaxed, easy-going, friendly, open-minded guy with a good sense of humour and positive attitude towards life.. I'm an avid nudist/naturist especially in the warm outdoors and enjoy that freedom at every opportunity, whether it be hiking, cycling, swimming, sunbathing, nude yoga and other exercise.. Please understand that, being a nudist, you will need to be comfortable with me being naked whenever I can be, wherever I may be staying. Love to cook, wine & dine, entertain, enjoying nights out at bars, clubs, dancing as well as quiet evenings at home with some music or a movie and glass of wine.

live and let live... and wanting to find those with similar views on life..

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I love to find other travelers or hosts who share common interests, and love to learn from those with different cultures from my own.


Have been hosting more the last couple of years and enjoying it more and more.. sometimes I also look for hosts when traveling but not so much experience with that so far.


wide variety of interests, especially the outdoors - tho only WARM outdoors.. hiking, bicycling, beaches, swimming, snorkeling.. also love to wine, dine, entertain, cook, travel, and sometimes party party party!! :)

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: I'm not a real movie fanatic - mostly enjoy a movie when it means accompanying a good friend for a relaxing evening out, or relax at home with a friend, interesting movie and nice bottle of wine.

Music: most anything from classical to electro house, deep house, dance, jazz, new age, folk, rock, Danish pop, Thai folk music, etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- fathered 3 wonderful kids - 3 granddaughters so far..

- jumped into frozen lake in Northern Ontario (hole cut through the ice) after sitting in sauna - what a rush!!

- rode the Battlestar Galactica ride at Universal Studios in Singapore - absolutely the most thrilling 60 seconds of my life!!
