About Me

CURRENT MISSION

recently retired, I am in the process of catching up with my personal life

ABOUT ME

I used to run a photo agency that I sold in early 2010. Photography was both a profession and an avocation for me - I can still get high on great photojournalism, and now, that I am retired, can spend more time on my own photography.
I love the ourdoors: rock climbing, backpacking, hiking, bicycling, canoeing

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live. We all have a responsibility for each other. It is unacceptable that some people lavishly spend on themselves, while others are starving

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Looking forward to meeting travellers from different cultures for tea or a drink

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfed in Denmark in 2011 and enjoyed it very much. Best way to learn about the country and meet its people. I have hosted a few couchsurfers - also a very positive experience - and lots of friends visiting New York, and their (grown up) children. I find their visits always enriching

Interests

Life in countries that have visited

Music, Movies & Books

I like low budget movies like Beasts of the Southern Wilds, European and Iranian movies. Reggae, Bossa Nova, and the Paul Winter Consort.
Biographies, and short stories - I am a very slow reader.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

have to think about that

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach my native language, German, though Berlitz once rejected me on account of my strong dialect. Can also teach English as a second language
