About Me

Note, 14 Feb 2017:
I'm in San Cristobal for two weeks (14 Feb - 28 Feb) with my girlfriend Lindsay (CS: lindsaywallin). We are not hosting, but both would love to meet up for delicious Chiapas coffee, a hike, a meditation session, a music jam, or whatever else you fancy. We are staying here with AirB&B and cannot host overnight guests. This is a gorgeous city!

--------

Winter Time (in the Northern Hemisphere) = Travel Time!

I love artistic and creative things, big mountains, passion, passionfruit, good beer, wildflowers, water, delicious water, all types of food (except scorpions, yuk!), coffee, wine... live music is important for me, and I'll skip a hike just to listen or play

My interests are:
the trombone, music making, hiking, mountains
hitchhiking, coffee, food, collaboration
equality, etymology, cheese, freeganism
sunrises and sunsets, health, connectedness
swimming, photography

I've many stories, but I usually keep them to myself unless prompted :)

I run up the stairs because I'm too lazy to walk up at a normal pace

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I chose to be

Teach, Learn, Share

Would love to practice Spanish more often.

I might be able to teach you how to play an instrument; at least the basics. I know some ukulele, and am teaching myself to have the courage to sing out. I would LOVE to learn songs from the places I visit! One favorite thing to do is find that little button to turn you on to playing music --- EVERYONE has that talent, even if it's playing the triangle. My main squeeze is my Trombone (with no name), who usually travels with me, and my Ukulele (her name is Ginger) comes along as well. Let's jam!

Coffee, its history, culture, and its deliciousness.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Smiles, songs, humour, humor, wine!
