To expand my understanding of unique individuals. Learn, love and teach in a unique way.....
I've had quite a journey physically, mentally and emotionally that began when I helped a friend sell all of their belongings with the idea of traveling together to Hawaii to start a business. That was over three years ago, and while that idea didn't come to fruition exactly, most of the three years since has been spent traveling across the country, meeting new people and helping them develop their online business ideas...or other things more commonly associated with Couch Surfing.
Whether it's building a website or watching a dog at somebodies house while they're gone, they're other reasons that show up to meet new people here beyond just the need to be somewhere different. One thing as an affect of this sort of traveling lifestyle I've noticed and confirmed is that NOTHING AT ALL HAPPENS BY ACCIDENT...The people we meet, things that happen to us both good and bad, places we find, all have a purpose. There's an acceleration of seemingly random coincidence that happen when either our mind is open, or more easily enough when we travel. We tend to be more open minded when we travel, so because of this more great things happens to most of us when we're in travel mode, even from our sub-conscious, super-conscious (similar to the state of mind where miracles happen).
Cool things can also happen to me (or we) at my home in MO, to - but my mind often is more open to the universe of possibilities when I travel, which is often a mutual benefit noticed in the people I meet along the way.
That said, my life's more recent work and research for a new type of social networking site that has the power to change the world, and joining with other companies who would use it, is often times good reason to travel and see the sites along the way! Really there are many reasons why I get around, whatever the reason, I'm grateful I've gotten to do what I love most in this life, and help others to do the same! Which gets me around today in finding new applications limited only by vision: )
I'm also a teacher of different spiritual paths, and enjoy sharing the many stories that happen upon myraid paths joining and coming together...
Plan to live in the moment anytime possible! But also know thyself, know what you want to do while allowing a new wind to fill thy wings in pursuit of a ever changing vision that COMES from being free.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I go to CS events when I can...and offer my house to everyone when I'm there...Well known friends when I'm not. I'm open to new ways to participate in the future, perhaps as the ambassador of Pierce City: )
My first Couch Surfing experience was at a meetup in Phoenix where my friend and I met some really cool people. We later went on a trip to see the Grand Canyon as a group which was nice... After that I was more open to start CS-ing once in a while with others besides friends I know.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've eaten durian fruit (really, really strange but sweet fruit). I recently spent many months in the South West countryside touring the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Phoenix, Santa Fe and many wonderful places in between. More recently seen VA beach, NC and TX - which was freaking fun! A lot of hiking, bicycling and shopping!
Teach, Learn, Share
To teach is to share what your love of life is. I want to learn what motivates others to teach and share what makes life worth living for themselves!
