About Me


Making a difference, being happy.


What would our best friends say about us? We're straight shooters. Honest. Reliable. Funny. Whatever we're doing, we're doing it 100%.


It's all One. Be kind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We're happy to host, and eager to surf. We particularly love sharing our neighborhood with new friends. Food is a big deal to us, and we'll be delighted to have our surfers join us for really tasty vegan meals. And cyclists....you've always got a place to stay with us!


We've hosted folks from one to four nights, and it's been hassle-free and delightful. Our surfing experience is more limited at this point, but we hope to change that next summer.

For us, CS ought not to be only, or even primarily, about saving bucks while traveling (though there's nothing wrong with that!). We enjoy showing people our community, and getting to know them.


Vegan cuisine, good wine and beer. Road cycling (anything from a short jaunt in the hills to a long, lovely century). Yoga, mindfulness meditation. Hearing great live music, and playing it, too (others will have to decide if it's great or not).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Awestruck moments? For her, it was swimming with the turtles off the Galapagos Islands. He remembers a "Stella Blue" on the '89 tour that turned him into a puddle. We continue to be awestruck by each other, as often as possible.

Teach, Learn, Share
