About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To have life long friends from every country in the world and to feel we cant wait to learn from each other and share positive experiences.

ABOUT ME

Great question! Truthfully what might they say. Well, as much as it pains me, I think they would say that Im a guy who loves music, loves sharing depth and philosophy, and is open, but too confident. I think at their best they might say, I loved his openness and willingness to see and engage in life and learn from others, but at their worst might say, he's too open and confident for his own good in that he should not be or share so openly. By the way, I consider sharing and humility along with inspiring people to try positive new experiences, without worry, and to enjoy discussion and sharing experiences/events while offering warmth/ humility/kindness and adventure best ways to learn and have fun in life.
I hope that friends might say that my main fault is that I look at life as what I want it to be: where they think it many times too good to be true, I think its all how you view and correspond to people and situations and we are hear to learn how to feel comfortable and not fearful at our best. Its all about learning how to feel comfortable through the journeys and trusting your in route to get there to know that awareness at all times.

PHILOSOPHY

See above 3 sections as I list them and do not want to bore you.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Im a person who has been married. HAd great relationships and friends with most still, as I think its how we learn about ourselves and other people close to us help us learn if we dont push away out of fear. Ive tried many many sports and activities such as become a pilot, scuba diver, etcc. but enjoy to share and teach rather than compete. Though I did compete earlier in life more. Travel and people teach me the most of what matters and allow the things ive done and acquired only meaningful when shared, to be most helpful. I am a lucky and positive person, who challenges myself when fearful of things to accept them regardless of my participating or not in them.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

not known yet.

Interests

I spend all most all of my time traveling. 12 international trips per year minimum, with a 6 week trip abroad each year, really embracing learning a new culture for that time with family, friends, and adventures outside of home culture.
I love nature, being outside, seeing the beauty of an area in its physical beauty and the architecture and culture.
Ive boxed, played american football, raced motorcycles, and started 3 companies. I enjoy most, learning from others their philosophy on how best to live and share experiences. my interests include travel, photography, all things beautiful without fear, worry, or being negative. (seeing answers rather than problems of how to be in the moment and work of off going and doing at all moments of life rather than waiting for the "right time to come moments" To experience and share, rather than collect and be private. To go and do all through life, rather than wait for the right moment. To share all of my blessings with others, and hope they enjoy the moments as much as I have and feel that they have as many moments to share through their experiences and adventures.
I love music....especially samba, jazz, especially contemporary jazz, and seeing nature and architecture.

Music, Movies & Books

Described above in other sections.
Best book: The results book; how to flow with the universe, Wally Minto-Author; written in the 70s.----Jazz. /Bossa Nova/Somba/ rythem and blues

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Ive been lucky to go to every continent, except Russia, antartica. Ive been lucky enough to go to most of Africa, including Morocco, Kilamangaro 3 times and stay with wonderful tribes in the bush, with animals and safari. All through Europe. Through most places in the middle east, including Israel, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt etc. etc. Also through most of South and central america including Machu Piccu in Peru, Bolivia, Patagonia-(argentina and Chile), Galapagos, Equador, Etc.
and through much of China and Indonesia, and scuba dove most sights there and other main island places. (see my pictures and website, please)
Ive been lucky to see 3-400 surgery's and be so young, meeting so many great people who share so much so easily, to learn from.

Teach, Learn, Share

Life is love and fear and 0 in between the 2. we all feel fears but have and are provided opportunities to move always to the positive side by inner action and sharing experiences. Its a limited experience so enjoy teaching/sharing with one another openly and easily. Then you can learn just about anything and count on one another through life as one grows as light bulbs go off and you learn something you didnt know or understand. Its all a math equation between love(positive on scale) and negative fear (negative thoughts) on negative side of math scale until we embrace acceptance, warmth and loving/embracing life experiences and challenges.
