About Me


To see the world. . .little by little. 👀


I'm an easy going guy, very easy to get along with, and fun to hang out with. But then again, I'm biased. LOL! 😜

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I really enjoy meeting people and interacting with different personalities. I'd like to help others see this part of the world, and in exchange perhaps see their part of the world too. . .one couchsurfing experience at a time! 🙂


I play video games, card games, enjoy the outdoors, hikes, laying in the grass talking about space, stars, planets, the solar system, potential for other life forms, and so on.

I also enjoy theological conversations having to do with belief in God (I'm an Aethiest), not to downplay other people's beliefs, but to *understand* what they believe and why.

I also enjoy political conversation, like why some world governments are bonkers, and how we can help make them less bonkers (obviously they're going to be bonkers, and we'll never be able to fix that, but just *maybe* we can make them less inept). LOL! 🤪

Music, Movies, and Books

The Secret is my favorite movie. I like all kinds of music literally. Nothing is off my radar. 🎧

I also read the Bhagavad Gita, Wisdom of The Universe, Q'uran, Bible (NIV), The Hite Report, Rich Dad/Poor Dad, Think and Grow Rich, The Universe in a Single Atom and a slew of other books to numerous to list here.

I'm also studying astrology and the role in plays in human interactions - so expect me to ask your birthday, so that I can understand your better - in case you're interested, I'll tell you my birthday too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lived and Traveled in Europe for 9 months in 2019! Phenomenal experiences. Amazing people. Lots of Love. ❤

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I don't know what I could teach. I guess you'll figure that out as we get to know each other.

Learn: I thirst and hunger for knowledge and information; so whatever you know - feel free to teach me! 🤓

Share: Mostly everything. I come from a home where things were always taken from me, so to that end, I'm working on sharing my things more openly, but I do have some house rules for making me feel more comfortable in that process of growth.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Video games, Netflix, Hulu, regular cable with premium channels (I have HBO, Showtime, etc), and experiences around Orlando. I have an Annual Pass to Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens. I love Thai Food, Vietnamese Food, and pretty much every kind of food. I love doing Escape Rooms, and fun stuff like that too. I'm literally open to most things. 😎

Countries I’ve Visited

Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Czech Republic, Dominica, England, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Jamaica, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In
