About Me


Hop Skip and Jump around the world until I get dizzy!


I have created a new fabulous life in Northern California, first starting at Spirit Rock Meditation Center living as a dharma bum and now working a real job again as a County Planner. I love living in Ca, I love the fresh organic food, the beautiful scenery, hikes, camping, beach walks, big trees and big mountains. I love architecture and long city walks. There is nothing like a great spiritual discussion and I enjoy hearing other people tell their synchronistic stories so we can revel in the amazing miracles all around us. I am funny and a bit shy but always open to meeting new people.


I follow a lifestyle based on Theravadan Buddhism, understanding suffering, and striving to live with an open heart.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have not participated in the CS2 project yet. Not sure what contributions I can offer at this time.


I have had experiences couch surfing with friends many years ago but never in this formalized way. This is very cool!


music, photography, museums, people watching, parks, great city neighborhoods, book stores, movies and a good pale ale. I have fun reading tarot cards, astrological charts and am learning how to read palms.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a really long list of favorite movies.. My music tastes range from classical to bluegrass, old time rock and roll and new women artists. I enjoy reading the classics, american novels and love books filled with art.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Only one- my whole life has been amazing to me. I climbed Uluru in Australia, I used to ride my own Harley.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can offer teachings from the Buddha with a special northern california psychological twist.
I would like to learn about eastern astrology.
