About Me


Meet new people and learn about them, their country, and their faith.


As a work-a-holic, I do find that I enjoy living on the beach and taking time to breath the salt air. My friends and I enjoy traveling to different places and exploring local culture and customs.


I am pretty easy going guy who is laid back -- as I learn about new people, places and things, I am inquisitive. My goal is to learn.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Looking to serve as a host.


Never knew much about Couch Surfing until a good friend traveled Europe and met an incredible extended family via CS.

Since I love meeting new people, I thought this is perfect!


My friends often laugh and tell me that I ask too many questions. I am very curious about the way in which people live and work. Understanding the political structure of other governments is interest, and learning about religions fascinates me. Suppose that I am forever a student of life.

An understanding of other places broadens the mind and allows for a more meaningful life as you can appreciate the differences of others.
