About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"The future is what you make of it, so make it a good one" - Doc Brown

ABOUT ME

I'm an experience seeking, intellectually curious, oft nerdy guy, seeking to learn a much as I can in the time that I have. What better way to learn about others than living in their shoes (and in their homes) when abroad, and hosting them in my own town.

PHILOSOPHY

I love to learn stories of others and internalize foreign cultures as much as I can. Take in as much as I can, and share it through story, song, and times well spent.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've been hosted by many amazing travelers across the sea, and look forward to more. I'd like to host international travelers, learn about their culture, cuisine and song, while sharing what I love about the area I live in.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed in Europe and N. Africa and had amazing times. I'd like to give others the same memorable expirences in the place I live and love.

Interests

Good friends, good food, good beer and great times. I enjoy making short films, playing music (on Piano, Accordion or Guitar) and learning the songs of other cultures. I'm an avid outdoorsman who enjoys Sailing, Fishing, Biking and Hiking

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was able to explore the "uncharted" territory of the Paris Catacombs last year. Here's a short film I made of the experience. https://vimeo.com/90859417

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm happy to teach what I know of Piano, Accordion, Guitar, and the countless american (and Polka) songs I know. If you visit me during the warmer times, I can teach you a bit about sailing or fishing. I'm happy to share my skills and make a short film together.

I'd like to learn music of different cultures as well as to cook their cuisine. If you fish, i'd be interested in knowing some new techniques or attending a fishing trip with you.

J'aime beacoup parler francais, mais je ne suis pas tres bien. Si vous parlez le francais, je vais adore etudier.
