Discover my purpose and value in life; explore and learn.
American living in Netherlands, trying to find my next business venture or productive activity :)
I believe the greatest value in life is in expressing creativity and good, and most often involving other people.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To meet new (local) people when I travel
To share ideas about the world and gain new perspectives
To share good meals and experience new culinary delights
I love good food. Sometimes I cook above average meals, but I always enjoy trying new good (vegetarian/vegan) dishes. Spicy is good sometimes.
Musically I like a lot. Live music is great, but I can also chill with a glass of wine and Miles Davis on the turntable.
For fitness, and when I'm in the mountains, I really enjoy mountain biking or skiing. The rest of the time, I enjoy weightlifting. In the past I played a lot of tennis, and I would enjoy doing that again.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Sang with my choir on stage with Barbra Streisand to a packed concert hall.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach computer stuff (programming, logic, architecture, etc.); but I'd rather not, since it might compel someone to become like me! (and I'd rather not have chosen this path :P ).
I can teach you to ride technical trails in the mountains on a bike.
I can teach English, insofar as I speak it and have a strong grasp of English grammar and spelling.
