About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Tramontane

ABOUT ME

I grew up in Colorado, went to school in Oregon and now I live in Spain. I have a beautiful wife from Germany that I love with all my heart. Two things that describe who I am, I am an outdoor enthusiast (surfer, mountain biking, climbing, anything) and then there is the classical guitar. I am always obsessively working on classical guitar pieces (sometimes I even forget to eat!) and looking at the sea charts for swells to surf. All things outdoors I love!

PHILOSOPHY

Live Simply

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have also hosted at my flat in Spain, I try to connect with people whenever I can. I am always travelling so this website is essential to meet people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I don't really like couches unless they are SUPER comfy. That said, I would rather just set up my tent in your backyard!

Interests

MUSIC & Guitars, looking at classical guitars, testing different guitars and listening to their sound qualities and differences in wood or materials used, their overall artistic/aesthetic value.

Surfing, i´m really addicted to it (suppose there are worse things to be addicted to), it is all consuming. Mountain Biking Swimming, running, rythmic sports, Yoga Climbing ( i like the movement) Skiing for sure. Exploring, trying things

Nutrition-- i'm vegetarian and into diet and health.

Music, Movies & Books

Books- Nothing more exciting to me than getting immersed in a piece of guitar music to read, such an adventure!

Music -- Music is very important to me because I dislike tv usually, so I constantly consume music instead. This is the tip of the iceberg: Classical music from all over the world, lets talk about it, but I generally don't like pop music or culture.

Movies- I dislike most popular culture television programs or from what I have seen as an American, cooking with Sara Wiener is so cool though!!!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have climbed all sorts of Peaks in the Andes, lived through a revolution and well some mischievous things... :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a teacher and guide by training, could also teach you guitar, how to climb, surf, and do 5 minute headstands without passing out. I work as guide as well, throughout Spain, Canary Islands and South America, I like sharing my knowledge of these areas with others.
