About Me


Inspire and lift the world


Healthy, strong individual from an amazing family. Grew up taking saunas and jumping in the lake. Read Walden, then built a cabin and survived winter with nothing but the woodstove. Spent summers trail building. My favorite place to be is outside. Love to cook and eat, dance and sing, play. On a mission to put people in space. Lover of life.


I am here to be a part of this amazing human experiment.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Listening and caring.


Couchsurfing exposes the best of humanity, giving and caring for each other. Slept on couches, in tents, barns, yurts, beds, floors, hammocks, and best of all under the stars. Shared great meals and stories!
