About Me

CURRENT MISSION

moving my three beautiful daughters to our new new mexican home

ABOUT ME

my wife and i have three daughters, who are four, seven and ten. we are embarking on a move to the southwest, where my in-laws live, so my wife can take a job at a museum there. we live for family time and love to cook and talk and eat, we don't need much more. our girls are excited about trying to find hosts for the trip out to nm

PHILOSOPHY

i consider myself a practical hedonist, do what feels good, but do no harm

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

new to cs, would love to find hosts on our way out to nm, then would love to travel some since our kids all love to meet new people whenever they can, looked up cs people in our new home town (only 2) and have already made friends on-line

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

no cs experience proper, but i grew up in a family that belonged to a similar organization called SERVAS. this was pre internet and it was tough to find hosts and make plans. when we returned from a euopean tour where we able to stay only a couple of nights with hosts we put ourselves in the book as needing no advanced notice for travelers. the year that followed we had over thirty visitors, it was fantastic for me as a young teen.

Interests

family, gardening, craft, cooking, listening to live music, making stuff (i.e. treehouses, serving trays from olive oil tins, etc.)

Music, Movies & Books

i grew up in seattle one of the best movie towns in the world, watching jacques tati movies at nine years old. love every movie genre, live music of all kinds, kexp on-line, books?...not until my daughters give me the time again

One Amazing Thing I've Done

it is nothing but amazing to be at a child birth, even more amazing when you realize you will be a part of that baby's life forever

Teach, Learn, Share

peeled and sliced tart raw apples, lime juice, honey, crushed cardamom, and finely chopped scented geranium leaves make a really good treat
