About Me


To see and do


I love to travel. Travelling to new places opens me up to places within myself. No doubt. I love nature and being in undeveloped places that inform me with new information about the world. This is the time to be alive! This is the time to discover and explore!


The power to change is within. The problems humanity faces are curable by us because they were created by us. We need only to recognize, and put into action, the unlimited power we possess.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and host.


Had a great time with hosts in New Mexico and hosting travelers from Canada and Georgia.


Im interested in music, art, culture and education. Whenever I travel somewhere new I tend to study up on the history of the place before I go. I like to know what has been happening in places and how people have come to settle there. Other than that I love writing about places I go to and have kept a consistent journal for a while. Please direct me to your local independent bookstore.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Communication with nature has left the biggest impression on me. The silent language in the skies of the southwest are life-changing. Being in communion with flowing water is also amazing. I like to say I baptized myself in the Ho River in the NW peninsula of Washington state, a beautiful, sacred place!

Teach, Learn, Share

I think Im mostly here to learn. However I may be able to teach someone through the process of dialogue. I have knowledge of the Buddhism I practice - one of the lessons I have learned from it is "turning poison into medicine." I would love to share literature I have on the subject.
