About Me

Searching for creative souls to connect with.

PS: I have had both doses of the Pfizer vaccine (plus both boosters) and am now fully vaccinated.


is creating a movie of my life I'd want to watch over and over again...


Originally from the NYC area...

Chill, down-to-earth, meditative, contemplative, camera-toting, globe-trotting soul inspired by random acts of kindness that I encounter on my journey . . .


Be cool...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couch Surfing has been an amazing platform for me to connect with my 'tribe'...


Over the years I've stayed on many couches, futons and floors and now I'm doing so 'officially' as a "Couch Surfer".


Looking to connect with like-minded positive people...
Interested in travel, music, FOOD, cooking, social gatherings, musical improv, hiking, cycling, the outdoors, learning, checking out live shows.
Photography, the arts, creativity and new ideas...
Natural healing and well being...
Working out and staying healthy...
