About Me

I live fairly close to Berkeley. I've just written a 350 page anthropological book about a place in northern California, and am developing an online free CC university (which is accrediting on CC MIT OpenCourseWare in 7 languages and CC Yale OYC) and is also a wiki (like CC Wikipedia in ~300 languages). I like to travel and meet people! You can read more about my book here - ( & - as well as my interests and research on my homepage -

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Visiting people is my favorite way to travel and visit people and places! There is nothing better, more fun and interesting than being a guest in a local resident’s home, for instance – in Paris. And this way of great value accommodation can be practiced everywhere – in Europe as well as Asia, America, and island nations. I want to feel the real atmosphere of places I visit!


Online highest quality free education ( and in a new wiki, music (I play the Scottish Small Pipes -, studying the Internet ( and anthropology and languages.
