About Me




Lived in Vietnam for 3 years, and before that lived in my home of Orange County, California. I've become a teacher here, first teaching English, then literature, and now I teach all subjects at the elementary level.

I like to jam and play songs with guitars and electronic instruments, also traveling, meeting other travelers, and hanging out with my lovely wife. If you meet me, you'll probably meet her too.


Dharma is following the heart. Yoga is listening to the mind. Karma is acting with love.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I host, I would like to surf, and I like to meet for drinks or coffee. My wife and I enjoy showing travelers around the city.


I've hosted a few times and never surfed, but I would like to very much!


People, music, art, traveling, teaching, philosophy, literature, history, science etc.

Music, Movies & Books

There are good and bad examples of all types of art. I figure somebody had to do it well at some point for it to exist at all.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The way Vietnamese people live.

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach English, literature, philosophy, science, and history. I also once designed a course on the history of Rock 'n' Roll. I play guitar, synthesizer, and hand percussion and love to jam or teach others to play.

I would like to learn about gardening/sustainable agriculture. One day I'd like to grow my own food.

Countries I've Visited

Cambodia, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Laos, Mexico, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In
