About Me


To enjoy meeting new folks as I have for the past 25 years


I've had an interesting life in the past 20 years. Worked and lived at the Washington DC Youth hostel while working my Masters, worked as an archivist at George Washington University, and have traveled to Europe, England, Scotland, Australia, Argentina, Uruguay, Dominican Republic, and a few cities in the US. Currently working on a book on some of golf's greatest players and looking to do some work at the USGA library in Far Hills, NJ.


Live and let live and treat people as you'd like to be treated

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm trying to jump in and surf, since I have traveld a lot and met tons of interesting people in youth hostels, so this is kind of the same thing - finding great people to share a meal and a drink and a place to sleep while traveling


Had a friend introduce me to this when I was staying in Argentina a couple years ago, but have yet to surf. Woulod like to
