About Me


Doing environmental art and education projects in the U.S. and Europe. Traveling to Oslo, Norway in late May 2007 and trying to create a network across Europe through a museum I work with to educate people about the arts and environment.


I'm a multi-disciplinary artist, producer and director. I work with museums, art groups, and other creative organizations frequently. I am very interseted in the convergence of nature and technology as well as environmental issues. My worked has been exhibited in the U.S., Europe, Africa, and in movies ect. I love to make things constantly, solve problems, and have lots of fun when i can.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just joined and immediately donated my fair share, i'm sure i'll figure out ways to contribute!


Many, i've traveled quite a bit and it's the best to stay with people who have the lay of the land. I frequently host artists from all over the world and send them back home with one of a kind memories.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I just went to Algeria last year for an art show and it was the first time i stayed around practicing Muslim culture. It was very positive being an american in that culture. We are told to fear that culture, it's ludricrous. They were dedicated and beautiful people, connected spiritually and to their families first. It was a great experience and the overall lesson for people is never ever judge what you don't understand.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have many skills and i love to teach/learn and empower people. A little validation can go a long way. Education is the key to many world problems. Knowledge is_________.....You know that!
