About Me


to enrich my life experiences and establsh positive relations with all sorts of people


I'm interested in all aspects of our contemporary world and like to meet like-minded people; I love the arts in all their forms and especially love the theater scene in Minneapolis; I like riding my bike, going out, meeting new people, reading in different langauges, rambling conversations, developing my own style of writing, and finding beauty in the world and in people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm just getting started with CouchSurfing; we'll see where it leads. I love the idea. I believe this is one of the most interesting fallouts of the new communications technology.


No experience yet, but hopefully that will change.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

On this current trip I've loved bike tours through Berlin and Prague; going out in Munich; walking along the Neckar in Hiedelberg on a beautiful morning on my way to meet other academics; I also really loved checking out the Marx Haus in Trier. I've traveled a good deal and have hiked through foothills of the Himalayas, swum in the lagoons along the coast of Goa, and photographed cityscapes around the world.

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach by profession, but I'm not all the that pedantic. I continue to be a student in a variety of ways. I'm not terribly possessive, but I also respect the integrity of things and try not to mess up anything that is not mine.
