About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy my life, enjoy the journey and the people, travel as long and as far as I can, be extremely open minded, learn from others every day, teach and practice radical acceptance, LIVE.. outside of my comfort zone, help myself and others eliminate traditional and personal boundaries and fears and embrace our natural curiosities, question everything in life, say yes to new experiences, don't take life too seriously, and create lifelong memorable experiences with people that I meet along the way. Love without condition, only talk well of others, give without any reason, and care for people without any expectation.

🙌🙌I ❤️ giving free full body deep tissue sport massage. 🙌🙌

⭐ I'm looking for a travel buddy. ⭐

ABOUT ME

I really enjoy cooking, 🥣good beer🍺 and/or wine,🍷 hanging out at the beach,🏖️ hiking,🚶‍♂️snorkeling, cenotes, ruins, walking around the city🚶‍♂️, international travel, ✈️🚅 camping,🏕️ kayaking, giving massages,👐 live music,🎶 deep philosophical discussions, happy hour, movie nights,📽️ getting drunk and naked, 😱 game nights at home, creating unique experiences, and most importantly - spending my time with people that are open minded/free spirited with a "live and let live/Carpe Diem" mentality. 😎😉

PHILOSOPHY

The world is our playground - it BEGS us to come play - but WE make our lives too complicated - and the truth is...life is NOT COMPLICATED! Life can be so easy if we just let go, give in, and PLAY!!! Explore the world...explore YOUR world - step out - question EVERYTHING - and have fun!!
******************************************************
Treat others the way you would want to be treated. If that is the only rule you follow in life, you will have a great life! Give as much as you can (your time, energy, resources, love) and take only what you need.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've been couch surfing now for a while, and I've got to tell you - it's awesome! I've stayed on several couches, I've had many people stay on my couch, and I try to attend as many CS functions as my schedule allows.

I enjoy hosting events, creating opportunities for local couch surfers to meet each other and international travelers. I hope to meet some more great people, share great discussions and memories, and maybe even make a couple of friends along the way.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm on my15th year of CouchSurfing, and I still think it's awesome! I have made some great acquaintances and friends. I'm always impressed with how cool people are, and how complete strangers are really only friends that you haven't met yet. I can't tell you how many times I've thought it would be an ordinary night at home, and then see a last minute couch request...and an hour later I'm hosting some cool person from some random country...it's pretty amazing!

Interests

I really enjoying having deep discussions and listening to people, trying to understand the human race, and "why we do - what we do".

Don't take life so seriously....we've all read the book - we all die in the end. We are all in the process of dying right now. Our beauty and vitality slip away no matter how hard we try to hold on to them. Don't die without living....really living.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I quit my job, sold my house, my car, my furniture, all of my clothes...and have started a world journey. On March 10, 2015, I left the United States (Miami/Key West) to start a multi year/multi country world journey.

2018 Summary - New Years Eve in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Carnivale in Rio De Janeiro, Camping and riding a camel in the Sahara Desert, CheckPoint Charlie/Berlin Wall, Berlin Germany, Fringe in Edinburgh, Scotland, The Guinness Factor in Dublin, Ireland, The Titanic Museum in Belfast, Northern Ireland, The Basilica in Istanbul, Turkey, Ephesus and Pammukale in Turkey, Elephant Sanctuary in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and Yee Peng Lantern Celebration. New Years eve in Bangkok.

2019 Summary - Traditional Vietnamese wedding, Angkor Wat, Batu Caves, Genting HIghland, Rome (is an Outdoor Museum), Tower of Pisa, Ellora Caves, Khaneri Caves, Gate of India, Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai (tallest building in the world). In 2019, I visited 60+ cities in 34 new countries, and ended with New Years Eve in Goa, India.

In 2015...I saw Tikal, Machu Picchu, Iguazu Falls, and traveled all over Central and South America.

I used to own a large nightclub in Ybor City, which is not necessarily that amazing, but it sure was fun.

January 2009, I spent several nights with other couch surfers in Washington D.C. to witness history being made (the inauguration of Barack Obama) It was awesome!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd gladly teach English to anyone who wants to learn. I can share my limited knowledge of cooking, massage, and beer drinking.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to cook, clean, help out around the house or with special projects, and my friends/previous guests say that I give great massages...but I'll let you be the judge of that. I'm not professional but I enjoy helping someone relax, particularly after they have worked all day.
