About Me


Two months in Europe beginning in Paris and ending in Sweden with family.


After 27 years primarily spent in the Midwest USA, it's time to explore the world and see where my ancestors came from!

Even more than seeing the sights in Europe, I look forward to meeting interesting people and observing societies that differ from the one I'm accustomed to.

I enjoy good conversation, playing and listening to music, good food and good beer/wine.


I live my life with a satisfied mind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm a newby to the CS community, but it's such an appealing idea. Once I have a bigger place in the future, I look forward to hosting travelers. For now, I'm very interested in a cup of coffee for those in Minneapolis, MN.


None... YET!


Writing and playing music is my passion. I play in a band, The Small Cities and would be happy to play you a tune or several in exchange for a couch. I also enjoy travel... though I suppose that goes without saying.
