About Me


Make great movies. Raise great kids. Enlighten. Empower. Be free.


We are an adventurous young British/American family of five. We love attachment parenting, filmmaking, organic food (but we're not fanatical), traveling, spirituality, alternative health, good discussions, classical and world music, sun.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We have surfed a few times and hosted once so far.


We have couchsurfed in Lake Charles, Baton Rouge, Mobile, and Minneapolis - all wonderful experiences.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Romantic comedies and mainstream action movies are ones that we can usually agree on. Orion likes the more manly stuff. :-)

Music: Classical, soundtracks, Enya, Izzy, Celtic, Indian especially bhangra and bhajans, Russian, Hebrew, all sorts of world music actually.

Authors: Malcolm Gladwell, Seth Godin, Martha Beck, Elizabeth Clare Prophet. Non-fiction books about business, entrepreneurship, success, psychology. Helen's all-time favorite: Expecting Adam by Martha Beck.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
