About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To create jobs for others in their own countries

ABOUT ME

I am a participator in life, not a spectator. Never missing an opportunity to make a new friend, learn something new, do something I have never done before and go some place I've never been. I am intelligent, curious and adventuresome. I'm not as young as I use to be and I'm not as old as I plan to be, so that makes me just about the right age for anything. The only thing domestic about me is that I live in a house. My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first is hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint. I am not much of a cook but I know how to behave in a restaurant! On the positive side, I can put out a fire really fast.

PHILOSOPHY

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths and superficial relationships so that you may live deep within your heart. May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may wish for justice, freedom, and peace. May God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done. (A Franciscan blessing)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Every Peace corp volunteer in Peru used to have a key to my house. I even had a special bed custom designed for those really tall Americans. my house has always been as open to the world as my neighbors would permit.

Interests

The only musical instrument I can play is the radio, but I have other talents! I speak a couple of languages, am a certified sky diver, hang gliding, glider plane pilot, have a motorcycle (but no tattoos!), had 6 1/2 years of karate and I am the only hydrophobic SCUBA diver I have ever met.

Music, Movies & Books

TUNA MUSIC es mi favorito! AAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!! Gusta la todo musica.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hang gliding in Texas. It is flat in Texas, so to get up in the air, you lay on a skate board and tie a rope from your hang glider to the back of an airplane. When the plane goes up, you go up and the skateboard just moves on alone. yep, getting pulled up behind a plane was almost a good as jumping out of them.

Countries I've Visited

Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guam, Indonesia, Mexico, Saint Kitts and Nevis

Countries I've Lived In

Bolivia, Plurinational State of, Brazil, China, Micronesia, Federated States of, Northern Mariana Islands, Peru, Qatar, United States
