About Me

US Army Veteran, divorced father of 2 adult daughters. Sold home and traveling and working remotely from all over the US.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have totally enjoyed the experience I've had with couch surfers thus far. It's much more interesting to stay with couchsurfers than it is to stay in a place by myself. I have been living in air bnbs, cabins, campsites or hotels... making it around the US to experience fun places and working remotely on my laptop. Then after 5, I like to explore with or without others. I am an extravert so I have found this journey fun for the last 19 months.

I have three main goals for 2023: in February, I am leaving my current job so that I can pursue a new career in marketing. It's something I've been wanting to do for a while and the timing is just right. Second, I want to ride a horse fast and third, I want to teach country dancing on a cruise ship somewhere.

Music, Movies, and Books

Country is at my core because I grew up with it. I love Jazz, big band, latin, pop, EDM, blues, bluegrass, alternative, christian, classical and more.

Love all personal and professional development books, math textbooks, biographies of older people and anything witty!

Movies I prefer psychological thrillers, witty, and smart movies. Enjoy any movie where I am taken through a variety of emotions and actually feel for the story. This can be through visual scenes, music, sounds or acting. I don't mind crying in a movie whether it was funny or sad. 😂

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Won a "Twister" competition with over 2,000 students while in college. I guess I was flexible and well balanced...

Teach, Learn, Share

I have owned 2 homes for 28 years so I am knowledgeable on home repairs and remodeling efforts. Great organizer. Can tutor most math subjects. Can teach country or salsa dancing! 🤠

What I Can Share with Hosts

Energetic personality, great traveling stories, Army stories, leadership guidance, dance lessons, weapons training, weightlifting advice, party planning ideas, math tutoring and spreadsheet help.
