About Me


To see the world and live my life to the fullest!


Well - what can I say here to sum me up? I guess I dont really know... I like to think of myself as interesting - but comparing myself to some well-traveled adventurous people, I'm pretty damn boring! Im a gay guy - but I dont let the whole "gay" thing precede me. There is so much more to life than bars and clubs and circuit parties. Been there, done that. I smoke (outside), and drink but dont do drugs. I guess thats why I need a little excitement. I've always been very independent, and would have NO problem going to another country on my own without telling a soul I'm going. Now to me - THAT's adventure. What else... Im a proud father of two Himalayan cats (Jasper and Oliver), and seemingly on the endless search for my true purpose on this earth. I so often find myself thinking, "What the fuck am I doing here?"


Never really thought about that.. But "Do what ye will and harm none" comes to mind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I havent actually surfed anyone's couch, but when I went to Scotland for New Years, I met some awesome people from this site that really were the highlight of my trip


I have so many interests that its hard to list here. But I love the beach, great food, art, museums, good movies... laughing, and of course travel :-)

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a big movie buff.. I love so many from so many different genres - but a few of my favorites are the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Steel Magnolias, Best in Show, The Breakfast Club, The Color Purple, House of Yes, The Goonies, The Explorers, and all the Harry Potters. Music is kind of like the hampster in my wheel, so theres so much to list and Im drawing a blank. But my true passion is OPERA!!!!! Books - The Historian, The Four Agreements, The Chocolate War, Chronicles of Narnia, all of the Harry Potters, Dracula, Killing for Sport, any biographies on Madonna or Maria Callas - god that sounded gay... Um yeah anything else just ask.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A rooster raping a duck. I have pictures. Very distressing.
