About Me

Hi. Thanks for reading. I've lived in greater Fort Lauderdale for the last 30 years. I really like it here. I work Mon-Fri full time, but I'm free nights and weekends (when there's no football on TV). I like to travel, eat well, and generally enjoy myself. Ademas, hablo un poco de Espanol... MUY poco jaja

UPDATE February 2022: I have hosted thirty-three sets of guests so far, along with having met up with a couchsurfer who had her own hotel room on a layover, and I have also spent time with two CS members during a trip to Peru. With very, very limited exceptions, all the people I have encountered have been cool to be around, and I am a happy CS customer!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to travel. And I like meeting people who travel. A friend told me about couchsurfing, and it affords me the chance to get to know new people and learn about some new places, um, like a local. It turns out that I host much more than I am a guest - the times I had to write a CS request were very nerve-wracking , and waiting for responses was painful, so I try to respond to all requests quickly.
