About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To not reward bad behavior. Heads up to potential couchsurfers: Please practice good couchsurfing etiquette or we will be forced to decline your couchrequest. http://www.couchsurfing.com/about/resource-center/

ABOUT ME

I am someone who has appreciated many generous hosts and I like pass on the kindness shown to me in my travels to others down the road. . .

PHILOSOPHY

Do not seek to follow the footsteps of the wise, seek what they sought. - Matsuo Basho

Be good.

Get along with your neighbors.

Money can be and most times usually is, a distraction to the things that are most important in life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We have hosted many travellers in the past 8 years and couchsurfed just a few times on special occasions.
COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We've enjoyed hosting couchsurfers and love the concept and community spirit of couchsurfing. We hope to set a good example as hosts so that the couchsurfers that we've hosted. will also want to be hosts when they make their way back home.

Interests

I love water in any form, snow, ice, waves, clouds, saltly, fresh, falling, flowing, raging, etc. etc. . .

Petting dangerous animals at the zoo.

Learning from inspiring people.

I love to surf big waves!

Music, Movies & Books

I listen to all music, but rarely can make out the lyrics... I love the all the different sounds and the harmony created when the artist(s) find 'it'. Banco de Gaia's live sets are amazing!
I love the cinematic experience so much, we have a 3D screening room :)
The last book I read, I read because I had met the author while surfing my favourite wave in Mexico (In Search of Captain Zero is the name of the book)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

A few things that I've done that seem too crazy to be true...

I befriended a 300 pound wild crocodile.

I performed on stage with the founder of The Loveparade in front of a dancefloor of at least 60,000 people.

I saw a live grizzly bear's teeth and claws from less than 1 meter away (he was drugged).

I met Banksy at Damien Hirst's house just after I delivered an second encore performance at the request of Julian Schnabel.
