About Me

CURRENT MISSION

California adventure time!

ABOUT ME

I can't sit still. If there is a reason to go somewhere, I'm already out the door and 5 miles up the road be it a movie, music gig or a random road trip. My career is based on contractual promotional work, which fortunately feeds my active lifestyle and allows me to take time off for traveling. It's easy to live on basics if all you want are experiences.

PHILOSOPHY

Love is saying yes to what is

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Love meeting world travelers who have a passion for adventure wherever life takes them! Sometimes getting lost is the only way to truly find ourselves.

Interests

I am deeply involved in any activity that brings me closer to all forms of personal balance. My greatest interests in this field are Vedic Meditation, Acupuncture, Rolfing, and lucid dream development. Basically, I'm a very passionate person who likes to be calm.

I also like other fun stuff like polar bears, robots, popcorn, futbol, going to the movies, river rafting, impulse adventures, city-spelunking, grilled cheese, Fondue, Google Maps, Comedy Central.....you know...fun stuff ;D
