About Me


To travel and affect others in positive ways


I think the best purpose in life is to have a positive impact on others. I finished my career in local government and now do volunteer work including being an elder with my church.

I have been lucky to not have to work so I!enjoy varied interests like sports and being licensed in massage. Work to stay fit and eat right!


A Christian trying to live like one, and from a liberal perspective.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have hosted and surfed with 4 great people in Europe in 2010. This is a great place to meet locals and really experience an unfamiliar city, and add friends too.
