About Me


Try it all out if it remotely is of interest, why not right, we get one go at this and its all gone in the end anyway, the triumphs and mistakes, so rock n roll your way to the oblivion you so richly deserve.

We will meet many different people on our walk of life, always try to focus on the positive in any experience and you will have a good life, pretty simple, at least that's the current plan...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm a groovy guest and a groovy host.


I LOVE IT, I've been given horse riding lesson, hung out with a volunteer fire dept, ate at a sweet private schools cafeteria, had conversations with geniuses, given the chance to teach surfing, speaking at school about peace and the environment, meditating on lake shores.... this rocks, this will help give us the world we all dream of. We all get to see how different we are and yet at the same time that we have a common goodness underneath it all!


surfing, yoga, nature, physics, MUSIC, spirituality, quantum physics/mechanics, farming, kung fu, chinese medicine,running (minimalist style) plant based living.

Music, Movies, and Books

Khalil Ghibran, JRR Tolkien, Rumi, Umberto Eco, Jorge Luis Borges, Led Zepplin, Dance, classical, I love it all, I'll read it or listen to it once for sure. I listen and read from such an incredibly diverse range as i figure this will make me ninja, plus why not right....

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've changed, lost weight (over 100lbs), changed world views, become a better man....... If you are always learning, you are staying ahead of Darwin, ergo, you are on the path...

I have seen a trail of bio-luminescent plakton trailing out for miles behind my aircraft carrier in the middle east under a crescent moon in the Red Sea(at least, I think it was the Red Sea, my geography is decidedly NOT amazing).

My mom and dad after 43 years of marriage=) Heres a kicker, same home phone number for 42 years!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

Think for yourself based on what you feel... the space for that which you truly want in life is filled by what you settle for...

Basics of Chinese medicine and philosophy, vegan cooking, philosophy, kung fu, yoga, nutrition, cranio-sacral therapy, silly jokes, music, perma-culture farming, landscaping, bicycle maintenance/repair, dude, I got a lot to share=)

What I Can Share with Hosts

A dose of ninja goodness in a world gone loopy
