About Me

Wanting to inspire as many as I can toward their excellence. Tina and I bought a van and are traveling to North America inspiring and giving hope to people for a better life. We travel and live in our van loving live.

A "people person" all my life, from age 15 I have been an entertainer--juggler, magician, comedian--and have loved that path in my life. In the first year of my juggling I got first place on "The Gong Show" and went on to perform around the world (this was before surfing on coaches was around.) I ended up as a featured performer at Ballys in Atlantic City. Life was excellent--performing 2 shows a night, 6 days a week, about 15 minutes a show--getting paid well to do what I loved.

Then one night, while walking to the show in a terrible rainstorm, I was hit by a truck. I remained in a coma for 37 days. When I awoke I had to learn to do everything physical again, including walking, talking, and, of course, juggling. I came back to juggle, ride a unicycle and perform again; although my skill level is much lower then what it was. Also, I have written four books and traveled the world motivating others to see the potential that we all have for a fantastic life.

About 16 years ago I developed a Mexican salsa that has done quite well for me. People love the taste and buy much. Perhaps we can make some when we are together?

Having an intellectual, fun and educating talk with someone is so important to me. Most recently I have been studying the idea of a "God" and how he or she might help people in their life. I am not finding any evidence or proof of anything along the lines of any kind of god. Perhaps you know things I don't? Let's have a talk, educate me, please.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meeting new people is such a joy in my life—yes, you—I want to meet you. I can guarantee you, you will learn to juggle when we are together, a good time will be had by all. Also, please teach me what you know, we all need to connect in that way and learn from each other.

Dave Finnigan, an old friend, juggler and surfer, took me along on a trip he was taking to NY. We stayed with a wonderful family and I knew at that point that was the way to get around in the world. Who wants a "motel" when you can connect with people and share the world.


When you get paid to do what you love in life, it is hard to decide on "Interests". Joys in life for me can be: bicycling, camping, wilderness, juggling?, backgammon, computer writing, having fun with new people I meet (you), spreading joy and enjoyment of life as much as I can.

Music, Movies, and Books

Modern rock interests me much, always on in my car. I like to read science books, I like to learn new things about life. Often I don't have time for movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The joy of a child as they learn something new is wonderful. As we age we lose our childhood curiosity, fun and interest in life. It can always be brought back, I like to see it evident.

Teach, Learn, Share

Everyone of us has something to teach. I want to learn from you how to put on a roof, how to shoe a horse, how to make the best Japanese food, how to be a superb clown. You have so many skills, I want to tap your mind to gain knowledge, as I have much to give you.

What I Can Share with Hosts

You will learn how to juggle, and, I want to help you to find an better life for yourself than you currently live.
