To live a life of exploration, service and joy.
Some friends would called me lost, but I say that not all those who wander are lost.
I currently coordinate a community center/food pantry in Colorado Springs, CO. I also direct interagency health and feeding programs and am working on building community gardens for 3 sites in 2012. I am also a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who served in the Philippines from 2008-2010. Great to meet you!
The purpose of life is to live fully, wisely, compassionately and with joy.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I hosted couch surfers while living in the Philippines and loved it! I'm interested to become involved with CS again now that I have 'settled down' for the time being in my hometown of Colorado Springs and am planning new travel adventures.
Outdoors: hiking, camping, running (training for a marathon now!)
Music (guitar, clarinet, hand drumming)
- outdoor activities
- scuba diving
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
Hmmm...quite a bit actually. But I love non-fiction and travel memoirs.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Scuba diving and snorkeling in the Philippines (most marine bio-diverse region in the world)
Climbing Colorado 14ers
Hiking rim-to-rim in the Grand Canyon
Working in the Scottish Highlands at the base of Ben Nevis
Teach, Learn, Share
I love to meet other humanitarians, or those who love to travel and learn. I enjoy sharing experiences with all kinds of people--
I have a friend who tells me I could get along with a brick.
You know what? I think he's right.
