About Me


keepin' it real around the world


This is never fun. What do I write about myself? I like creative activities. I also enjoy sitting still like the hummingbird. Actually, take a look at my interests. That will tell you quite a bit.

Additionally, I'm a tidy, well-mannered, quiet guy who gets along well with most anybody. Enjoy the occasional drink at a bar, but prefer to spend my time with coffee, a book, a pad and pen, or a laptop, quietly. I also love just wandering around new places, or old places, with my trusty Leica camera. Conversation is good if not forced -- there is something to be said about enjoying the company one is in simply for their presence.


"I've lived out my melancholy youth. I don't give a fuck anymore what's behind me, or what's ahead of me. I'm healthy. Incurably healthy. No sorrows, no regrets. No past, no future. The present is enough for me. Day by day. Today!"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed, but not yet hosted. Planning on traveling long term some time in October. Can maybe host now, but I'm living with a woman who is rather wary of "strangers" staying in her home.
