About Me


To meet new people at home and while traveling


I am a devout Catholic who goes to church everyday and am open minded to all belief systems and ways. I have an adventurous spirit and enjoy trying new things. I am a widower with 2 grown children. I have been amazed at how much I have been enjoying hosting so many wonderful folks. I am traveling vicariously through my guests. Hope you have a safe and exciting trip. When requesting a couch, please let me know one particular thing that made you decide to surf my couch. I look forward to meeting you! If your plans change call me as soon as you can. I look forward to showing you some "brotherly love" Ed


Live and let live. Live each day to its fullest....

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love Philadelphia and enjoy sharing with others what this fine city has to offer. -- Please NOTE -- I will be away August 28 through Sept 23, 2018, and June 30 thru July 10, 2018. I have hosted many wonderful folks, now I hope to be able to surf myself.


I have met so many interesting and wonderful people so far. I do get disappointed when I commit to a couchsurfer and their plans change at the last minute. I understand but when they do that, many times I have already declined other CSers.


I am interested in traveling and meeting new people. I love to dance. I love the Irish music and dance and enjoy going to Ceilies. I also love dancing to Motown - 70 80's and like to try new things. I am now square dancing 3 nights a week.
I now travel the country enjoying square dance festivals and weekends. Maybe I will be coming to a square dance near you.
