About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To connect with others and find joy in people and experiences, both with others and alone, spiritual growth (buddhism, judaism, chanting,...) creative growth, sustainability in the earth. Enjoy playing with people and having fun even in the shortest interactions. I am a trainer and coach offering Nonviolent Communication (NVC) as one of my main approaches along with a bunch of other modalities.

ABOUT ME

Sense of humor and play highly important. Have to be outside as much as possible especially when it's warm. We hike everyday, Logan and I and sometimes Doug if he's not cycling. We have a large vegetable garden and enjoy cooking healthy vegetable meals with some non-vegetable thrown in. Like hiking, nature, painting, creating, learning, self development, writing, having meaningful conversations with friends and strangers too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have surfed in a bunch of places and enjoyed some very meaningful connections with my hosts. Couchsurfing is a way of life and the people you find here are some of the best people I've met.

I've hosted several people, but as I'm a little far from public transportation, (about 5 miles from the Light Rail). I would love to host more or just share time with others. I'm available to help out with rides to and from the airport or other public transportation spots.

Interests

nature, playing, singing, cooking, gardening, deep conversation, laughing, dogs, crafting, massaging.

Music, Movies, and Books

Read a lot of self development, coaching, communication, psychology nonfiction.
Fiction--authors who write with depth. I like the style to have psychological introspection as well as cleverness--and not too many descriptive details or my eyes glaze over.

Some favorite series are Orphan Black, Transparent, One Mississippi, Catastrophe, comedians, Modern Love, This is Us, How to get away with Murder,

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveling around florida with my dog, using couchsurfing and meeting new friends. Learning how to be resilient and not be attached to a schedule and a plan.
every day brings something amazing....it's more about being than doing.

I love meeting new people and sharing deep conversations and seeing what growth can come from each interaction. We don't always know the impact our words and ways will have on someone's path.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like people who think creatively and don't try to fit into the crowd. Would rather have deeper conversations than small talk.
Massage, cooking, laughing, hiking...

What I Can Share with Hosts

good conversations, humor, nonviolent communication, massage--giving and teaching couples or friends, infant massage, cooking, sprouting, gardening, craft project ideas and assistance.

I love kids, so it would be great to host folks with their kid(s)! Not having any of my own makes me much more patient with others! Plus, I get to give them back!
