About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy life, make people laugh and always have a song in my heart and on my lips

ABOUT ME

My grandfather who brought me up was a magician and a plumber and taught me both trades. I am taking theater classes in college and computer courses. I like to do water color paintings and singing and camping. I belong to a Hillbilly Jug Band and I play the jug in our 10 people group. I like to help out senior citizen, the homeless and those less fortunate.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in "live and let live". I believe in peace and in life, in love and charity, in karma, I believe in treating others as you would like to be treated. I believe there are three kinds of people in the world - those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who say "what happened". I believe "Not to decide is to decide".

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to welcome people to my home town over coffee and show them the sites which Albuquerque has to offer.
I enjoy going to the potlucks around town and meet new people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Attended several of the potlucks around town

Interests

I really enjoy doing magic/illusions. I've been doing magic for 43 years now. My grandfather was a magician and taught me. I am active in my Church. I like to sing and do watercolor paintings. I like to garden and go camping. I like working on my computer.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies I like: South Pacific, Oliver, Gigi, Avatar, Old classic movies. I enjoy going to plays. I enjoyed the book Chesapeake.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have not done much traveling. I have gone to Chicago and all the way down to the Florida Keys. I won a district award for my magic show as a Drunk Low-rider Magician and was written up internationally for my act. I now perform as "Magic with a Message".

Teach, Learn, Share

I use to play the guitar and would like to play it again. I use to own a small plumbing business. I can teach people a few magic tricks.
