About Me


Life is brilliant. You just have to see it. :)


I'm a very polite guy and I am very nice. I was raised with very good manners. I simply take part of Couch Surfing to meet locals and experience YOUR WAY of life and not just the tourist "hot spots" of your country. I have no intention of hurting anyone or offending you. Just hope we can share a very special experience maybe in the small amount of time we may cross paths in life and be changed forever by it. About me....My Grandfather arrived in 1901 to Ellis Island New York from Moss, Norway which is a place known for making "smelly" paper. I am Swedish, Norwegian, Danish & Polish by blood.


Only live once, make the most of it. Those who are always young at heart, the sun never sets. I truly feel sorry for those who never travel or don't want to educate themselves more.

It's not how much money you make, it's how you spend

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just try to be the nice, honest, sincere guy I am and hope you like me. Every couchsurfer I show Boston I give a 2 to 3 hour walking tour and you get to meet my little partner in crime "Mango" my cat from Taiwan.
