About Me

I truly live the 'work hard, play hard' mentality. I look forward to meeting like minded people.

I started traveling over 15 years ago and I travel around the world 3 times a year for 5 months out of the year. Love seeing the world, meeting interesting people, eating exotic foods and having random adventures!

I am an active artist, director, animator, photographer and travel for work. I have the joy to speak at prestigious conferences, International film festivals and to take my students to the top studios in the world such as Pixar, Disney and Square Enix. Twice a year I have to go to Bangkok, Thailand where I'm the Director of Special Projects, developing original intellectual property for RiFF Animation Studio. We're starting to pitch a couple of projects for International distribution.

Since I am a practicing artist, I love photography and visiting museums. I stay fit, so I love to go kayaking, play tennis, and hiking. In my spare time, I'm a professor @ one of the top universities in USA.

I love to eat, drink with good conversation. Life has been very good to me. The sun always seems to shine wherever I go and I appear to bring the best in people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting like minded people in their environments. I love learning about culture.

The world is only as amazing as what you put into it.
