About Me

PLEASE READ the "MORE DETAILS" section under the "MY HOME" section BEFORE SENDING ME A REQUEST and kindly include the details I ask for...
Thank you...


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


Chill, down-to-earth, meditative, contemplative, deliberative, innovative, creative, soulful, Bass playing, camera-toting, globe-trotting, global 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".


I want to meet like-minded individuals, positive people with open minds and similar tastes...
Interested in travel, music, FOOD, cooking, social gatherings, musical improv, hiking, cycling, the outdoors, learning, checking out live shows. An evening spent with candles, incense, chilling and conversation...
Photography, the arts, creativity and new ideas...
Natural healing and well being...
Working out and staying healthy...
