About Me

My partner (39 this coming June 2018) and I are considering something of a round-the-world sojourn sometime last this year, or next. It's very preliminary, but he should do it while he's still young, and I should do it before I'm too old! .. We have a home on the island of Hawaii (in the State of Hawaii).

I work as an administrator for a hospice, and it has put a lot of perspective on life for me, and making me think about what's important in life and what's no so important. I spent many years in the travel industry, but here remains a lot of the world to see, and so many interesting people to meet.

I'm also a writer ... have a well researched project I'm working on, now into the writing phase. It's fictional, and in the fantasy fiction genre.

My partner Jason works for a local helicopter sightseeing company, and also as a real estate agent.

I'm a former helicopter pilot and travel industry exec. We both are graduates of Le Cordon Bleu.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Getting familiar with the organization, how it works, expectations. And as mentioned in a prior section, my partner and I are contemplating an around-the-world travel adventure.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Most recently, I drove 12,000 miles around the USA one summer, camping and seeing sights, visiting family and friends. Other road trips across the USA, Canada and Mexico, including a lot of miles off-road.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to learn others' stories. I'm an avid listener and interviewer. I worked some time ago as a radio talk-show host and producer. I found my way into many interesting stories with some very well known celebrities, politicians and others from all walks of life.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Cooking -- probably a variety of other things, but as I'm new to this, I'm not too sure what to offer here.
