About Me


I can't tell you right now, but you'll all find out soon enough.


How does one describe himself? What do you want to know?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Whatever I do to participate, I'm doing right now.


It was a major part of my life several years back and met many people who I'm still close to. Not as active in recent years, but we'll see, could get back into it.


Hockey, baseball, traveling, cooking, reading, history, and other activities which challenge me physically or mentally.

  • cooking
  • reading
  • traveling
  • baseball

Music, Movies, and Books

yep, they're good stuff

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once saw an interesting exchange between a bird and a snake in my backyard.
