About Me

I live like crazy, so I can live happily with this beautiful crazy world.

I love hiking in places here like Point Reyes and Muir Woods. Am a Film lover personally & professionally. Big Time Foodie. Burning Man. Lover of Earth's beauty. Stone carver. all sculpture, life drawing, live music, chamber music, some jazz and rhythm&blues, rock climber, cutting-edge performance, Vipassana meditation, Forest explorer. Music clubs, museums, art installations. Love to eat tasty, healthy food, and I cook.

Long-time writer about film and film production.


My personal philosophy is e a s y : I like people... passionate people, smart, with opinions (whatever they are), open-minded, curious, spontaneous, creative. Especially people who are passionate and doing something to create any change in the world, not just suck it up.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING I'm an active member, hosting, meet-ups, and CS events (many in SF).


I joined CS as a host, and am overwhelmed by the dozens of outstanding good people who come to my door. I host often and maybe 200+ couchsurfers have been to my home, and only one was psycho and the rest are good to amazing. I'm lucky to meet so many excellent friends.

Where else in life can you find that?


(where to begin) good food, live music, all arts, fitness, laughing, cinema, Burning Man, hang gliding, spiritual, laughing, stone sculpture, sunsets, sunrise, Pacific waves, full moons, homemade pizza...oh, yes, T R A V E L.

Music, Movies & Books

I read Music, hear Movies, and watch Books...just not all at the same time. I started a film trade online paper, and my choices change. Favorite directors and periods, no problem.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Too many. So many. Many more coming when I next travel.

Teach, Learn, Share

I share my love with hiking through forests, redwoods, mountains, and can lead anyone to memorable walks. Talk about film, art,and music. Let me be a guide through the food and street music jungle that SF offers. I wanna to learn whatever you have to teach me. I'm a foodie if you want to cook in my kitchen -- or I like to cook if you eat at my table.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I love to cook, and hope I can share that. I want to meet people who'd like to go hiking, and share my love for natural places. I'd love to help someone get started on a stone sculpture, or to build a clay model for a casting. It doesn't stop there, but I will stop there, for now.
