About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Publish (*finally*) a book about my travels (20 years in the making!!!) and learn how play a wicked guitar

ABOUT ME

I can wiggle the second toe on my right foot without wiggling any of the others. That and learning to make miso soup from my Japanese friend, Misa, a "real" cappucino from Vincenzo and Khinkhali from my Georgian Bebia; how to dance salsa in Colombia thanks to Carlos; and how to get a job in a foreign country, and travel on a shoestring budget from Buzz -- these are the "special skills" I'm going to add to my CV..... whenever I get around to making one.

PHILOSOPHY

I work to live, not the other way around.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host people, tell people about CS and promote the concept in general. Whereever I stay, if they're not on CS before, they join after!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I met Philippine, my hitchhiking partner from Tbilisi to Yerevan, at a mutual CS friend's house. She hosted me for almost a month in Yerevan. It was fantastic! Since then, I've met some wonderful people through Couchsurfing - two of which have since become my best friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One amazing thing I've seen in my lifetime was Angor Wat in Cambodia.
