About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel, Live, Love, and Learn. To sail and explore as much of the world as possible.

ABOUT ME

I love adventure.The salt spray on my lips refreshes me and pushes me further into the unknown. New experiences are my motivation to see the world.I stop to smell the flowers.When I throw a party I bring people together, networking and connecting people is fun for me.Music moves me, and I am always open to hearing new and interesting forms of music from nose flutes to armpits to didgeridoos I love it all. I'm learning to pick around on the guitar, focusing on Ki Ho'alu (slack key) guitar playing. I love spicy foods and hot sauces. If you happen to be traveling through Maui bring me some from your hometown.People say I have an old soul... People will say that I resemble one of the following:Orlando Bloom, Ananada Everingham (Thai movie star), that kid from 3rd Rock, or their best friend. People see in me what they need to see.I dislike drama, dogma, whining, hate, and really judgmental people. I work everyday at being less involved with drama and hate as well as pride myself in being non-judgmental, open and peaceful.

PHILOSOPHY

I live my life to make the world a better place.

Everything in moderation, including moderation.

My mantra is peace, love and happiness.

Do what you want because those who care don't matter and those who matter don't care.
-Dr. Seuss

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I promote the CouchSurfing community and encourage people of all nationalities, beliefs and cultures to exchange ideas gain understanding. Sharing any and all skills I have with everyone who needs them.

I sing Karaoke in every country I go!

Acro Yoga, Slackline, Fixing computers, tutoring, washing dishes, networking, and cooking are all skills I will give freely!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted dozens of people and have loved everyone who has walked through my door. Amazing people at every turn. I was vicariously traveling the world through the couchsurfers who stayed with me. Now I am experiencing travel direct! I've couchsurfed through Europe, Morocco, and SE Asia and want more!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

While hiking through Haleakala Crater I was at the right place at the right time. The sun setting behind a ridge we were climbing. Trudging and tired we pressed on. A friend said check this out and most everyone passed by, focused on the footsteps ahead.
I stopped and to my amazement as I turned around with my back to the sun there was a shadow cast out onto the clouds below us. The shadow of the ridge with our silhouettes encircled by a double rainbow. Beautiful and awe inspiring.
