About Me

CURRENT MISSION: travel as much as possible and pay it forward

ABOUT ME: I am a part time employee at the airport so I am able to travel frequently. The summer of 2015 looks like a great season to travel.

I am ideally looking for a family who might want to stay in our home for up to 6 weeks. My wife and kids will be in Spain during mid June through July. I am looking to travel some or most of that time for work and to visit with the family. ( I will be staying some of the time though exactly how much has yet to be determined)

The catch: In exchange of free accommodations I will need pet sitting. We have a Dog, a cat and yes fish (very cliche' I know).

PHILOSOPHY: Do good work, pay it forward, walk a mile in your shoes.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING: I have surfed and visited a few times over the years and now I would like to offer my home. My home is available from mid June through July, 2015.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE: I surfed a couple times last year, once with my kids and once solo. It was great on both counts. I am excited about the opportunity to continue to walk the good walk.

Interests

I enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, swimming, surfing solar, craft beer festivals, and of course travel.

Music, Movies & Books

eclectic and varied

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The birth of my kids are hands down the most amazing things I have seen. On a world travel scale, I love visiting 1500 year old cities throughout Europe. I enjoy National Parks in the US ... probably Yosemite is my favorite.

Teach, Learn, Share

I volunteer to install PV and solar thermal systems. I enjoy working with, learning and teaching solar technologies. When I travel I fly stand-by so my plans are often in flux.
