I grew up in Michigan, then moved around a bit and now I'm back taking care of my dad.
Lately I've become pretty fired up about Bernie Sanders and his becoming our next president. I had a fairly right-wing upbringing, but it never sat well with me. After living in progressive San Francisco for eight years and Berlin, Germany, for two, I can very clearly see that the roots of world problems are planted in the American oligarchy that Bernie is fighting.
I'm happy to chat about any interesting topic that the extraordinary people of couchsurfing care to discuss, and if you like talking about progressive political revolution, I think we'll get along just fine.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have hosted and surfed but not much lately.
Right now I'm settling in Berlin and using CS to find new pals in the groups.
I've been a couchsurfer in Canada, Mexico, the US, New Zealand, Australia and Fiji.
I have had loads of great ones. For example, my host in San Antonio gave me a tour of the town on his tandem recumbent tricycle. Everyone we passed smiled and waved. We were rock stars.

The sunrise from Haleakala, the volcano on Maui, was pretty awesome.
Teach, Learn, Share
If you're really interested, I could show you how to do some web development stuff. Otherwise, I'm sure we can find something new to learn.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I like to cook and will happily prepare something yummy.
