About Me


To learn. To teach. To enjoy life. To make sense of nonsense and then find more nonsense.


I am an American who has lived outside of the states for most of my life. I love to travel and meet good people. I cannot live without books, and I like movies. I can cook food that is usually edible and I am always looking for new friends and new ideas.

Right now I run a tech school in a low-income area of Nairobi. I think technology and design have the power to transform lives and communities and the more people that know these skills, the better our world will be.

Sorry for the low response rate! I haven't been a regular responder and will try to do better.


Everyone has something to teach me, so I try to be willing to learn.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

love meeting people and getting new perspectives.


Conversations, education, books, movies, outdoors, culture, food, drink, music, laughter.
