About Me

Fully Vaxxed - Timely Boosted

***Read my entire profile.***

Boom! We just hit the Marseille Invasion, April of 2023...huge CouchCrash!

Surprise, we headed to Germany (winter of 2020) and got out just before COVID19 lock-downs. While there, we surfed in Kassel, Brunswick/Braunschweig, Berlin, and Dresden.

We surfed Amsterdam, Bayreuth, and Prague summer of 2019.

We surfed Slovenia, Austria, and 3x in Germany in 2017.

I enjoy English literature, specifically Edwardian era lit. I enjoy dry, British humour, and 80's music...think New Order, Alphaville, The Cure... That is enough for a teaser, reserve the couch to get the rest of the story.

I will read your entire profile. Please return the favor.

If there is any doubt, there is no doubt. Also, we are a household of smart-asses. Fair warning.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My wife, Liana Ottaviano, runs the couch. I keep the bathrooms clean and the dishes done. I also attend the CS meetups here in town. I also wear a CS t-shirt from time to time.

1. You are better off requesting a surf via her profile. 2. Please do that 3. after reviewing my profile in full. 4. If you were declined by her or her schedule is blocked as to tour dates, think hard as to whether requesting the same dates of me will actually work. I always ponder why one would not follow the above steps. The shorter your couch request, the shorter my reply.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE - My wife has triple-digit references from running our couch. We love bringing the world to our home.

We are also Trail Angels for the Pacific Crest Trail. The smells do not bother us.
