About Me


to find facts and 'les emotions fortes'


I once threw out my back lifting many bags of rock salt. It still gets sore sometimes. We can talk about the rest in person. Also, I do want to make it clear that if you do not answer my quiz I will not accept you.


What this kid said.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed and hosted.


I really love Couchsurfing, it has shown me more of the world then I could have wished to see. However, I do think couchsurfing is best complemented with stays in hostels and guesthouses if available, which can be lots of fun as well.


I enjoy talking about bird migratory patterns, the recent changes in your child's nap schedule, and Ke$ha.

Oh wait....no I don't, I hope your presence will bring about more convivial and astute conversation.

Music, Movies, and Books

I read indy magazines.

I watch all movies from Will Farrell to Quentin Tarantino.

My music range is similarly as broad. However, I have a firm belief the the band Love is the most underrated band of all time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland, lived in beautiful Lugano Switzerland for three years, lived La Dolce Vita in Italy, experienced amazing hospitality in more places than I can name, did construction work in Abkhazia, spent many nights on the town in Ankawa, Erbil, Iraq.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you the origins of the universe, the place of man in the universe, what is good and what is evil, what happens in the afterlife, and the ideal relationship between the individual and the state.

Ok, no I can't. But I can tell stories of past travels.
