About Me


to be free and wise


I Love! I love music and music-making. I love to cook for my friends and self, in a word; potluck! I love traveling and being on the road and yet I fully appreciate Home (where ever/whatever that may be). I have a wonderful dog named DizzyBear. I have cool folks that take care of D.Bear when I scramble and wander from time to time. Love em.

Take love with you where ever you go.

Try things twice, unless it's known to be deadly from time to time, then maybe just try it once.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been on the mission since April 2008, and the concept and action have been a big part of my life for over twelve years. Over the years I've shared my bed, couch, floor and received the same in good turn. If I'm staying in your space, I welcome the chance to work with you and learn from you. I hope I can leave others with a new song, or way of seeing the world and I would like to discover these things too. Most recently i've been hosting folks in the big bad bronx. I'm away often, but i can get you in touch with the good and the great alike.


Old surfer with New Network. I am grateful for the many wonderful people in the CS community.


Music and Love are the first things that come to mind, good friends and family and in no particular order; traveling, balance, cycling, cooking, trying new foods and ideas, learning from my day and from stories, keeping active and eating well. Good wine (especially red) and dark chocolate. Laughter. good socks. wool. Garlic. Olive Oil. Balsamic Vinegar. Cheese. Peanut butter. Cities. Alleys. Puddles. Hiking/Camping. Sleeping. Dreaming. Dogs and Cats. Couchsurfing. Soup. the Woods.

I've always enjoyed sitting around a fire and singing familiar songs; so, i'm interested in sitting in new circles learning new songs.

I would like to meet an infinite spectrum of people and especially other travelers and seekers.

Music, Movies, and Books

I do like movies.

Generally I like acoustic music and folk lyrics. Really, Everything from Metalica to Tribalistas, to Yo Yo Ma to John Hartford, to Radiohead. My bands: Boss Hagwon and JasonLiskoLive

I like to read. I tend to keep a couple of books going between fiction and non.

I like to read T-shirt slogans too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen Aurora Borealis from Alaska and N.Y.; the best ones I've known were in Plattsburgh, NY out my back yard and over Lake Champlain.

One thing I've done that I found amazing was to help make Canela (a form of cane sugar) in Ecuador.

I also played Trumpet in a high school Orchestra and Jazz Band at Carnegie Hall. This impresses me now more than when it happened.
