About Me

CURRENT MISSION

hosting folks (especially those who like the outdoors) in San Antonio and the Texas Hill Country

ABOUT ME

Multilingual, conscientious guy who loves the outdoors (camping, hiking, biking, kayaking, caving) and foreign cuisine. I have a clean, comfortable home with a large kitchen and 2 roommates (one gay & one straight). We are progressive-minded, eco friendly liberals. We are omnivores, but can and do enjoy accommodating vegetarians, vegans, gluten free, and just about any other dietary considerations.

PHILOSOPHY

The central purpose of each life should be to dilute the misery in the world.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am using CS in my travels and repaying it as a host when I am home. I enjoy making good, healthy meals for our travelers to give them a break from fast food on the road. We also have a washer & dryer you can use. I mostly host (a lot) and set up camping trips for our local CS crowd and anyone else who likes to join us.
WE LOVE TO HOST MUSICIANS!!! :D

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have hosted dozens and dozens of times and we seem to manage to always have a great time. :)

Interests

I volunteer as a cave guide at Texas State Parks. We go on a lot of camping, kayaking, river tubing, and caving trips all year round. I also used to be a sous chef in Austin, TX and am great at making Mexican, Italian, and Korean food.

Music, Movies & Books

The Hero With 1000 Faces, Seven Arrows, anything by John Muir, The Color Purple, Black Elk Speaks.
Fleet Foxes, The Shins, Old Crow Medicine Show, Gillian Welch

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The Anderson Watson Lake trail at Mt Baker, WA. New Years in Rome. My life in Austin. My years in Italy and the rest of Europe.

Teach, Learn, Share

We really enjoy sharing meals, craft beer, and wine and if it so happens to line up I am happy to take people on a camping trip and show you some beautiful parts of the Texas hill country.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I am an excellent cook and very tidy and conscientious.
