About Me

I am available to host the third Friday (weekend ) of every month.

live, love, be loved, give, hope, stretch.. okay I like all that but keeping it real...focus on creating a full life and being open to new adventures. I have dreams of sailing long distance and am slowly working in that direction. I hope to sail to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico next October/November 2017 in the Baha ha ha


I'm an ophthalmologist, practicing in northern California. I have the blessing of a wonderful family, Wife (Ruth) and three children (Joel, Kathryn, and Becca) heading off to college and careers.


Respect, kindness, caring

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have a 40' sailboat near San Francisco and would love to share this space and sailing opportunity. the " couch" IS ONLY AVAILABLE THE 3RD WEEKEND (FRIDAY AND SATURDAY) OF THE MONTH. The boat has two cabins and I would enjoy the company and sharing sailing with any interested people or couple. The bed space is a little small (you would have your own space), and the views are beautiful. Depending on time and weather I hope you can come sailing in the San Francisco Bay.


My son has done this a number of times and it would be nice to meet new people and share experiences. I have now been the host for many travelers and I continue to be blessed by making new friends


Well... I spend a lot of time at work. Thankfully, I am proud of what I do and I like it. Beyond that I enjoy my family. As you can guess I've invested some time in learning to sail and I am hoping this takes me to exotic lands... or at least allow me to meet people from exotic lands.

The sailboat offers and excellent classroom with hands on opportunity to learn about sailing and the san francisco bay...from the water
