About Me


Europe summer 2016


I am retired and enjoying traveling and learning how people really live in other countries. I was raised on the east Coast of USA (Rhode Island) and entered the military at a young age. . I am very outgoing and energetic (despite my age!) I am well read and enjoy interesting conversations about other cultures.
"The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
-Marcel Proust


"An unexamined life is not worth living",...Socrates
I am currently reading and re-reading many philosophy greats(Greek, Roman, Modern europeans)Also European history.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am interested in meeting and hosting interesting and wordly people. I am retired and my wife and live on a lovely three bedroom home on 12 acres in the country (Complete with Donkeys, dogs, chickens and cats!) Although Oklahoma is not the most active cultural destination it is very central to the major interstate highways, east-west and north-south. Try us if you are driving through.
