About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy life, enjoy the journey and the people, be open minded, teach and practice tolerance, and continue to learn every day.

Disfruta de la vida , disfrutar del viaje y la gente , ser de mente abierta , enseñar y practicar la tolerancia , y seguir aprendiendo cada día .

ABOUT ME

While I do speak a little Spanish, I used Google Translate for my profile, so I apologize in advance if some of the translation is difficult to understand.

Mientras lo hago hablar un poco de español , usé Traductor de Google para el perfil , por lo que pido disculpas de antemano si algunos de la traducción es difícil de entender.

On March 10, 2015, I left the United States (Miami/Key West) to start a multi year/multi country world journey. I'm started in Central America (learning Spanish in Antigua, Guatemala) for a couple of months, and then spending most of the remaining part of this year in Central and South America. I'm not exactly sure everywhere that I'll go or how long I'll be gone, but I anticipate being gone 10 - 12 years as I travel through Africa, Europe, China, Japan, Thailand, Nepal, India, Middle East, South Korea, Vietnam, Polynesia, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand etc...

I'm very laid back, down to earth, extremely open minded, liberal, non judgmental. I'm free spirited and I don't have many personal boundaries that prevent me from enjoying life to its fullest. I enjoy sharing new experiences with travelers and hosts...creating lifetime memories.

I enjoy engaging in deep conversations with people about everything, and since I've been on this journey, I’ve noticed that many of my hosts (and some travelers) that I’ve met so far feel forced to live life full of rules, restrictions, and boundaries based on cultural and family norms and expectations. They never have the opportunity to express themselves or share deep emotions with anyone, and I love providing that opportunity for them to step outside of their comfort zones, talk about their fears and anxieties and dreams, and experience the pure joy that comes with self-awareness and self-exploration and having someone to share those experiences.

I enjoy people who like cooking, good beer and/or wine, hanging out at the beach, talking about sex (even taboo subjects like masturbation and sexual experiences or fantasies), 😱 camping, kayaking, live music, happy hour, movies, being naked, game nights at home, creating new experiences, and most importantly - those that are open minded/free spirited with a "live and let live/Carpe Diem" mentality and those who just want to relax and enjoy this carefree hedonistic lifestyle that I've grown to love so much.

************************************************************************************

El 10 de marzo de 2015, salí de los Estados Unidos (Miami / Key West) para iniciar un año de múltiples / multi país viaje por el mundo. Estoy empecé en Centroamérica (aprender español en Antigua, Guatemala) durante un par de meses, y después de pasar la mayor parte de la parte restante de este año en América Central y del Sur. No estoy exactamente seguro de todas partes que voy a ir o cuánto tiempo me iré, pero Anticipo siendo ido 10 - 12 años que viajo a través de África, Europa, China, Japón, Tailandia, Nepal, India, Oriente Medio , Corea del Sur, Vietnam, Polinesia, Malasia, Australia, Nueva Zelanda, etc ...

Estoy muy tranquilo, a la tierra, sin prejuicios muy de mente abierta, liberal,. Soy un espíritu libre y no tengo muchos límites personales que me impiden disfrutar de la vida al máximo. Disfruto de compartir nuevas experiencias con los viajeros y anfitriones ... la creación de recuerdos para toda la vida.

Me gusta participar en conversaciones profundas con la gente acerca de todo, y desde que estoy en este viaje, me he dado cuenta de que muchos de mis anfitriones (y algunos viajeros) que he conocido hasta ahora se sienten obligados a vivir la vida llena de reglas , restricciones y límites en base a normas y expectativas culturales y familiares. Ellos nunca tienen la oportunidad de expresarse o compartir emociones profundas con nadie, y me encanta que proporciona esa oportunidad para que den un paso fuera de su zona de confort, hablan de sus miedos y ansiedades y sueños, y experimentar la alegría pura que viene con auto- conciencia y auto-exploración y tener alguien con quien compartir esas experiencias.

Me gusta la gente que les gusta cocinar, buena cerveza y / o vino, pasar un rato en la playa, hablando de sexo, (incluso temas tabú como la masturbación y experiencias sexuales o fantasías), 😱 kayak, música en vivo, happy hour, camping, películas, siendo desnudo, noches de juego desnudas en el país, la creación de nuevas experiencias, y la mayoría importante - los que son de mente / espíritu libre con una abierta "vive y deja vivir / Carpe Diem" mentalidad y aquellos que sólo quieren relajarse y disfrutar de este estilo de vida hedonista sin preocupaciones que he llegado a amar tanto.

PHILOSOPHY

The world is our playground - it begs us to come play - but WE make our lives so complicated - and the truth is...life is NOT COMPLICATED!

Make it easy - let go - give in - and PLAY!! Explore the world...explore YOUR world - step out - question EVERYTHING - have fun!! Step outside of your personal comfort zone...do something fun/exhilarating, you'll be amazed at how awesome life CAN be! Boundaries are boring and prevent you from enjoying everything that life has to offer! The exhilaration of expanding your boundaries...priceless.

El mundo es nuestro patio de recreo - nos pide para venir a jugar - pero hacemos nuestras vidas tan complicado - y la verdad es ... la vida no es complicado!

Que sea fácil - dejar ir - ceder - y PLAY !! Explora el mundo ... Explora tu mundo - salir - Pregunta todo - divertirse !! Paso fuera de su zona de confort personal ... hacer algo divertido / estimulante, usted se sorprenderá de lo maravilloso puede ser la vida ! Los límites son aburridos y le impiden disfrutar de todo lo que la vida tiene para ofrecer! La alegría de ampliar sus límites ... no tiene precio .

******************************************************
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!

Trata a los demás como a usted le gustaría ser tratado . Si esa es la única regla de seguir en la vida , usted tiene una gran vida !
*****************************************************
"You are a transferable medium. You imprint yourself on people that you meet, speak with, or travel with... in no more than mere random conversation... and when you separate from that person... they will carry you to wherever they go, taking you with them. Knowing that your influence in the world is involuntary... and it's almost completely outside of yourself... do everything you can do make that influence your very best for the world."

" Usted es un medio transferible. Usted imprimes a ti mismo en las personas que conoces , hablas con , o viaja en ... en no más que una simple conversación al azar ... y cuando se separan de esa persona ... que va a llevar a donde quiera que vayan , que le llevará con ellos . Sabiendo que su influencia en el mundo es involuntario ... y es casi completamente fuera de ti mismo ... hacer todo lo que puede hacer que esa influencia su mejor para el mundo. "

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 others and introduce their friends to the couch surfing community. 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 my 8th 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 been driving home from work thinking it would be a routine 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 actually!

Interests

Worldwide travel - especially Europe and the Caribbean. Enjoy making new friends, movies, music, cooking, hiking, camping etc..

You can find me on Facebook by entering this number 8139287698 in your search.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have an eclectic taste in music, from Faith Hill to Dave Matthews Band, to Madonna, to Rage Against the Machine, Limp Bizkit, Static X to Rascal Flats, to Sarah Brightman, Alannis Morrisette, Puddle of Mudd.

My movie tastes are just as spread out - some of my favorites are American Beauty, Slumdog Millionaire, Sicko, Doubt, Seven Pounds, Eating Out, Shortbus, Training Day, Crash, Derailed, Latter Days, We're the Millers, Bad Teacher, End of Watch, Taking Lives, Wild Things, Cruel Intentions, The Sweetest Thing, Minority Report.

I'm a big fan of Family Guy, Bob's Burgers, and American Dad. And who doesn't like a little South Park? I like The Apprentice, Biggest Loser, Kitchen Nightmares, Master Chef, Little Britain, Orange is the New Black, New Girl, 2 Broke Girls....just to name a few.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I recently quit my job, sold my house, my car, my furniture, all of my clothes...and have started a world journey.

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.

Me encanta cocinar , limpiar, ayudar en la casa o con proyectos especiales , y mis amigos / clientes anteriores digo que doy gran masajes ... pero voy a dejar que sea el juez de eso. Yo no soy profesional, pero me gusta ayudar a alguien a relajarse , sobre todo después de haber trabajado todo el día
