I have over 40+ addresses in my lifetime-(I've beena rolling stone) I am starting to travel for my own business and enjoy sharing knowledge-can be entertaining :P
My father is an engineer and growing up he would do contract work and we would move from place to place. (I was always the new kid, kind of goofy looking boney, etc..) So I had to learn to communicate real well. Things changed some time in High School, there really is so much to tell. My goal is to reduce commuting for work some days and save the environment(Spare the Air) Too many people going from Sa fancisco to San Jose for work and people from San jose going to San francisco. The state should offer tax incentives for companies to trade employees in the same line of work. (Kind of hard to explain here.) I have jobs for a couple days a distance away, and if I can reduce emissions by staying locally for those few days as well as reduce the risk of a speeding citation or falling asleep driving saving my life as well as others.. at a fraction of the cost. Perhaps treat my host to dinner (Tax write off for me) ;) and good company. (Hey, I'm the handiest man you will find.) Need some minor fixing or advice? on home, computer, etc..
Funny, Sometiems I feel it's because I have to. But really, I think.. I work to live, I work to pay taxes, I fight to keep weight off-sometimes miserably (Often) Pay Child Support ona son I rarely have gotten to see. I traveled 2000 miles to find him and found him within a week on a beach in California and have been here supporting him since 1996. Long story... I have millions of stories... Basically I feel it's not how long you live, but how you live it. God did not put us here to really be miserable.. He wants us to enjoy life-we should ALL ENJOY LIFE. Like I told my wife when I had a peice of cake or good meal.. I would rather live to 50+ years and really enjoy life, then Hide from societys great events, skip meals, have excercise as a chore! and live to 70+ (Probably in a half enjoyable to possibly miserable state thats intensifies with age.) Putting it in SHORT: It's now what you have attained in life when you leave this world you will be remembered by, it's those live you have left positive lasting impressions that can pass on similar traits sharing how fun and the great many things you share enjoyment in.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I would like to offer my services with free security Consulting and a Non-profit rate installation services to help you host. This is really a greta world we live in, only a few bad apples.

New to this.. but many travels to share..
Shooting Pool, computers, photography, Skiing, Movies, etc..
Music, Movies, and Books
a Variety... just not PUNK-ROCK or THAT REALLY REALLY HEAVY METAL.. OR REALLY BORING Opera.. (I like some opera music (Ie: Italian) I don't buy it.. but can handle it.
