Join Couchsurfing to see Mike’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm an engineer, artist, and an explorer. I love to design and build things including a smart phone controlled multi color lamp, electronic juggling prop, and interactive art displays.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I need to travel more to broaden my perspective of the World and challenge myself to break the barriers holding me back from traveling.
Rock climbing, hiking, bicycling, theater, music, writing, reading, art, religion, new foods.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
With a group, we hiked to the top of a frozen waterfall, setup a climbing anchor, and repelled down. For the rest of the day we took turns ice climbing this frozen waterfall.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach the English language, electronics, and basic wilderness survival.
I would like to learn as much as I can about Indian culture, Hinduism, and the places I travel.
I can share my experiences and stories in Life thus far.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can share a young modern American perspective with hosts. I would like to change the way people see Americans, as I am not an overweight, idiot and bully, like Trump, who has been defacing the average American. Often I am embarrassed to admit I'm American when traveling because of the negative bias with which I feel we are seen.
I can also teach English, as I am a writer and grammar nut. This includes the slang with which I normally speak, but also the strict grammar with which I usually write.
As an electrical engineer and handyman, I can fix most things around the house (with the right tools), and help hosts get a better understanding of electronics and the handyman mindset.
