About Me

I am a musician, writer and student w/ an entrepreneurial, team & free spirit. I enjoy the outdoors and new cultural experiences

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

RHCP lyric: "Oh let your ride be free"
I think we rely to much on money. Although I enjoy time to myself, I meet interesting folk all around the world. I'm new to this. But it seems great because it'll afford me opportunity to integrate into cultural fabric instead of landing at Ramada. Those are nice sometimes, but don't reflect the life of a town.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Life. And I keep doing it!

Teach, Learn, Share

Anthony Kiedis introduced himself to me once in a Malibu market line. He said to his director friend "I know a guy who gave his whole life to music", arcing his head dramatically and staring into my eyes. I said, "Hi, I'm John". He said, "I'm Anthony".

I listen to everything & everyone everywhere. I am interested

What I Can Share with Hosts

Well, I'm kinda shy singing outside of a music venue, but I do have my guitar and occasionally lightning strikes & I do love to express my freedom through song.

I listen, I discuss, I learn, I have a culture all my own that is constantly evolving thanks to amazing nature and souls.

Above all, I've been told I have a strong sense of calm. And I do. And that is empowering. Perhaps something I share with you can open new possibility.
