About Me


To see, feel, smell, touch, think and hear the unfamiliar


I enjoy reading, watching documentaries, theme parties and finding myself in unusual places. The more I get lost, the more I feel right at home. A work in progress.


Everything that happens to me is the best possible thing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meet ups. potlucks. an occasional surf.


Politics, Djing, photography, reading, sea kayaking, college football, Alaska, travelling, learning new things, meeting new friends, climbing mountains, good deeds, spicy food.....

Music, Movies, and Books

I worked in College radio for four years both on the air and in show production, I am a music snob thru and thru. I like movies done by Kim Ki Duk, Korean director, I also like comedies and pretty much any thing with substance. I read a lot of books on human behavior and travel.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

moved to Alaska in 2001, hitchhiked, sea kayaked, backpacked and made some of the best friends of my life.
