About Me


Help raise my kids well, have fun,


I sell commercial insurance for a local independent agency. In my free time I love to go the YMCA, attend business events, Mountain Bike, go to Karaoke Bars, and tent camp. These are all things I would be happy to bring a CS guest along with me to do.
Yes we have mountain bike trails in Iowa and Illinois. Or also called Cross Country Trails. I belong to the local club and we have built some great trails!
As far as Karaoke goes I can find a place every night that has karaoke. I can't sing but do anyway! My best "song" Tone Loc's Bust A Move.


To live happily ever after every now and then.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hope I can meet some new people and show them around my neck of the woods. I suppose the Mississippi is the biggest draw in the area.


I had my first couch surfing experience in March of 2009. I don't think I could have asked for a better introduction to the concept. My host were great, along with another CS'rs who took me hiking, and another I never met but helped get a lost bag back to me.


Mountain Biking, Camping, Reading fiction and non-fiction books. Canoeing and road cycling are some new things I am enjoying

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy reading all sorts of books. My two favorite authors are Carl Hiassen, and Elmore Leonard, when it comes to movies I love the many film adaptations of their books. Such as Strip Tease, or Jackie Brown. I also try and read non-fiction and enjoy Malcolm Gladwells books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This spring I helped my girlfriends family artificially inseminate their herd of Angus cattle. Living in Iowa I think I have better sense then many people of where our food comes from.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a canoe and a desire to travel the Mississippi in it for 3-4 days. That is an experience I am looking to share with someone!
