About Me

I am a science fiction writer, currently traveling in SE Asia. I like being outdoors and spend a lot of time hiking and camping. And I love to hear people's stories.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have hosted or been hosted by at least a hundred people all over the world. I love meeting new people and hosting when I can.


Science fiction. The near future. Culture and globalization. Evolution. Economics and global politics. Indigenous groups and social paradigms. China.

Most everything, when it comes down to it.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books. Can we talk about books? I am infatuated with books. Storyline. Arc. My first idols were Milan Kundera and Italo Calvino. Then in early SciFi Arthur C. Clarke, of course, and Octavia Butler.

Ray Bradbury. William Gibson. Neal Stephenson. China Mieville. These are my rock star gods, but I read anything and everything, and would love to know what you read.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once spent three months studying frogs in the Upper Amazon of Ecuador.
