About Me

CURRENT MISSION To write the song that makes the whole world sing. In Harmony. As One.

ABOUT ME Music is a big part of my life. Performing, touring, recording, listening or just jammin' with people. I live in Key West and play a lot of gigs here around town. Now, I’m working on an interactive music experience called the Great Song. It involves breath work, vocalization, rhythm and mantra. It culminates into a beautiful and unique song that we all sing play and dance to.

Things that turn me on…nature, traveling, camping, hiking, bird watchin', chopping wood and building fires, moon gazing, sun worshiping. swimming in oceans, rivers and lakes, concerts festivals and gatherings, yoga and meditation, trees in general, medicinal plants, sound healing, Tantra path and lifestyle, crystals fossils and minerals, sacred geometry, massages(giving and receiving), disc golf and shootin' pool.

I am laid back and mostly aloof but very passionate about certain things, my Scorpio nature. Im generally a health and environmentally conscious guy. When I can, I support local farms, fair trade companies and anyone doing business with integrity, - what a concept, right? I like to drink water from the side of a mountain and try to eat organic and locally grown foods as much as I can. I enjoy high quality micro beers (stouts and porters especially) and really good wine!

I enjoy the company of open hearted and open minded people. I like to sleep on couches but rarely sit on one. I'm just too damn busy.
PHILOSOPHY Love everyone. I am who I was. But who I am becoming is who I am. We are all ONE, connected, from the same source and once we recognize this, the world will be a different place. This ain't my first rodeo!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It started with P in Scottsdale who told us where the key was and let us in her house before she got home. It blasted opened my heart and mind! The amount of trust in a growingly untrusting world. After that, I went on a 6 month cross country charity tour called the Half 4 Humanity Tour ( and we couchsurfed our way across the country, meeting amazing people and creating beautiful connections. The tour would not have lasted 6 months without the grace, generosity and support from this community. It changed my life forever and I’m deeply grateful for this platform and community.


My experiences couchsurfing have been so amazing and unbelievable that it is hard to put here in this box. I think most of you on here probably can say the same thing. When I would tell people what I am doing and what this community is all about, they look at me like I'm loco. They dont get it. The people I have met through this community have been so incredible. Some that I may never see again. Some, new friends for life. All in all, this community has re-instilled my faith in humanity and proves more that we are all connected. Love and respect to all who participate.
