About Me

Hi Guys! I've been on CS (Couchsurfing) for a while now; not the oldest member by any means, but I've met so many amazzzzing people, it has changed my life in so many wonderful ways! As you can see, I've done far more surfing than hosting, mostly because my travel addiction is hardly satisfied. Hope to meet you to see how our lives change!

I'm very much into artistic and creative things. 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 (though not on this trip in SE Asia), and my Ukulele (her name is Ginger) comes along as well.

I'm goofy.

I'll be the first to dive into the water at the ocean, lake, river, waterfall... I love love love being in and around the water.

I'll be the first to start up a mountain, or trek up a hill or through the jungle... I love love love being in and around trees and nature.

I'll be the first to suggest going for coffee... (continue the above "loves")

I'll be the first to try a new dish from another country...

Roads that cross, those that end...

I run up the stairs

If there is a beautiful flower lying on the ground, I'll pick it up

I don't smoke; it makes my mustache smell terrible.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Instead of going into the "work force" after I graduated from the University, I tried to satiate my addiction to travel. I'm still traveling. The more you know, the more you don't know. I'll be traveling the rest of my life; always satisfied, but always craving more.

Teach, Learn, Share

Would love to practice Spanish more often.

Music Theory, History and Music Psychology are a great things to discuss with me. 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!

Coffee, its history, culture, and its deliciousness.
