About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I will be traveling to 12 new countries this year (Hopefully) . If you are interested in joining me or like more information click on the link. I want to travel the world and capture all of it in photographs. To meet people that will move me to be a better person.

ABOUT ME

I am 50 years old and I need to travel the world!!! It seems that my days are getting shorter and shorter as I grow older. There are so many beautiful people to meet, so many wonderful cities to get lost in, so many flowers to smell, so many rivers to touch and so many artistic landscape to photograph. I have been to every state in the United States and all over Mexico and Canada. I just got back from Dubai the third week of November 2014, I have been to Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, China, Viet Nam, Colombia, Ireland, Japan and Costa Rica. And I can't wait for my next photo shoot! I have three grandchildren that I adore and I hope that one day they will reach out to someone and say, "My grandpa ("Papa" as they call me)loved life and he loved to share that love with everyone that he met in his travels all over the world". I am not a rich man however I can afford to travel, eat at restaurants and stay at hotels. I have done that for a long time now. I know what its like to stay room by myself, eat at a restaurants where their main objective is to make a living and I have arrived in cities to get lost by myself. I think it is more important to get lost in a conversation with someone of that city to explain the joys and pains of living in that city. I would rather eat with someone that hands me their favorite peanut butter and jelly sandwich if they hand it to me with love. And I would much prefer to sleep on the floor of someone home then a fancy hotel if I could have a cup of coffee or tea and to watch the sun come to life with someone that is a friend. I love traveling but not just traveling to make a living. I love traveling so that I may live life to its fullest.

PHILOSOPHY

This is my philosophy posted on my Face Book Fan Page several years ago and I think it still is the same. "We were created to have relationships with one another. I have a vision and dreams that my photography and my thoughts may be expressed to build relationships with many. Keep me in your thoughts to make it possible!"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I travel a lot so this is the perfect way of communicating possibly with new friends from all over the world. I am looking forward to people from all over the world experience the beauty of the Colorado Rockies, the massive amount of art Denver has to offer and being able to have a wonderful conversation over a cup of coffee a mile (5,280 feet) above sea level. I love taking day driving trips to the mountains to take pictures if, anyone is interested in one of my trips please feel free to contact me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Jumped out of a perfectly good airplane forty times... That is the not amazing thing. The amazing thing is that I still have the desire to do it again!!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn how to be receptive to peoples culture and how they express themselves to each other.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share stories that will excite you to become a world traveller, learning the richness of not only the places and the people but the wealth of the culture of those places that I have visited. That is what CS is all about for me. Not a place to stay but a place to learn the riches of exploring the world!
