About Me


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


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


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


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


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

Music, Movies, and 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

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
