About Me


To travel through Paris on February 8 - 12th. Live one of my favorite cities to the fullest


- a brave traveller, who likes to cook and eat local style food, anything goes.
- a friendly guy who engages in the worlds I visit. Telling stories of the world and luvin it if you tell yours, helping with good ideas, fixing things, and I cook for you at the drop of a hat. If you sing I will.
- a designer of cross-functional objects and compact homes and work environments. I'm trying to break ground in Vancouveropulis in small apartments , lane-way housing and sea containers.


Hang on tightly, let go lightly.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, so drink deeply from the Perian spring. For there shallow drafts intoxicate the brain, while drinking fully sobers us again. (Alexander Pope).

Sure every one can have an opinion on things they think are important. But opinions are like children. We wouldn't leave them unattended at parties or online or impose them on others without supporting them gently and well, or in the case our acquaintances had "children" of they're own who might disagree.:)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


boldly, constructively.

I plan to offer up my pimped out AirStream Trailerto reliable CSurf comrades every once and a while, or my apartment couch and kitchen.


I met my now dear friend Jana while she was surfing in Vancouver and ended up meeting her in Budapeche months later. I Travelled up through Europe to Berlin and out through Paris a few months later.


I like: knowing about things that are different. I notice small and large details / similarities that others don't spend time on, subtle humor about all that we do. staying in touch with the humorous side of things is essential to a flexible and humble attitude.
Loves: celebrate Food, thrill on nature and sport - I ParaGlide, Kayak, Ski , scuba dive, ride horses, roller blade, cycle, +. - Conversation, Chess, magic tricks, comedy, flying, birds, design, arts and literature, physics.

Music, Movies, and Books

Progressive, alternative, Jazz rock fusion, Experimental Classical fusion. World.
Don't like old goldies or rock. There's way too much incredible new music and artists to listen to anything old ... excluding anything David Bowie ever created, and music written since I was born. I am not old b.t.w. :I

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The 3/4 moon was rising in the East, as the sun was setting on mountains in the west as I flew into a valley over its river,on the tail end of my first solo high flight in a Paraglider. (just 1500 feet).

A Colt being born and struggling to its feet moments later.

Galloping on a young Apalossa horse up through a birch tree forest on a foothill in Alberta in the Spring.
