About Me

I'm 41 years old, former military pilot and military test pilot, now I'm an airline pilot. I've never liked being in big groups of people (unless they are so big that I can still feel anonymous). I'm not a big partier, but I thoroughly enjoy a fine scotch or beer and a board game or cards. Holistic and homeopathic medicine is an interest of mine. I'm told I have a rather dry sence of humor (people sometimes take me seriously when I'm actually joking or being sarcastic). Being former military, I'm a team player and thrive in adverse living conditions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I normally try to stay with family/friends, but I know NO ONE in Chicago. It looks like I might be based there for a while. I’d love to meet some locals and get to know the city.


Aviation, hunting, outdoors, games, astronomy, philosophy, theology, holistic medicine.
