About Me


I would like to share my family's home with people from all over the world. (At least occassionally.)


I have multiple beautiful children, a lovely wife, and a couple of friends.
I am happiest on those days when I type at least a few sentences.


I will need to work on this one for a while.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We recently hosted a great professor from Miami in our home in Evanston, IL -- an old suburb just north of Chicago.


See above, and other than that, I have traveled a fair amount.

Music, Movies, and Books

Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway is my favorite book so far.
A few nights ago I enjoyed very much watching Girl With Green Eyes starring Rita Tushingham and Vanessa Redgrave. I think I'm going to watch it again.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I fell in love with my Poetry Teacher.
And I have three amazing children.
I also hitchhiked from Chicago to California and arrived at the beach in Leucedia at precisely midnight. So I went swimming alone in the moonlight.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn sticktoitiveness.
