About Me


I am iinvolved in historic preservation and often travel around the country for conferences and sometimes just for fun


I am artistic, love to paint landscapes in oils and water colors as well as sculpt in clay. I am friendly and outgoing, love meeting new people and love being around people. I am compassionate and feel love for my family and friends. I am hardworking and very impeccable about my appearance and how I dress. I love to be creative and love meeting other creative and artistic people. I am also very interactive with what goes on around me and like to learn new things.


I love to meet people and share experiences and other things with them. It's always good to know all kinds of people and have a social life. I am a positive person who enjoys being alive and seeing the world and what it offers. I feel good when I can be free and have a lot of adventure.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I do not have any room at my home right now for hosting anybody but when I move to a new place in the New York City area I would love to host people.


I do a lot of traveling and almost always stay in hostels around the country. I never did any couch surfing, or stayed at someone's house. I am new to this.


I like to travel to different cities around the United States and eventually plan to travel to cities around the world. I am into historic preservation and like to see old outdated buildings fixed up for new uses. I also like to visit historic places and old cities. I love visiting musuems and parks and like the seashore too. I go to amusement parks in the summer time and like to go to various types of dances, contra, folk, swing and other social dances.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like novels, and historic stories. My favorite kind of music is classic rock, jazz and some classical. I like Disney type movies, romance and adventure type movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been involved in historic preservation and recently formed a branch of a non profit for preserving older and endangered buildings. Building Conservation has existed in Phila PA since the 1970's but I recently formed a branch of this non profit in New York City.
I saw a lot of great places while I traveled to other cities and met a lot of nice interesting people.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to share my artistic talents and the knowledge that I have about life and living. I like to share ideas and how to make the world a better place to live and enjoy. I love to have people I come in contact with be touched, moved and inspired and learn new ways they never knew before.
