I'm a computer geek who assumes everyone else is as excited about what I'm doing as I am. In the summer I rock climb, in the winter I snowboard. I love ice climbing, but need to do it more before I can really claim it as a hobby.
I used to make music, but these days I just listen to it ... choices have to be made, and I'm happy with mine.
luck is a state of mind; succeeding isn't easy, but it's possible; nice guys _don't_ finish last
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've crashed on a few couches in Europe, and hosted people as well.
I haven't used CouchSurfing.com to surf yet, but I have definitely surfed plenty of couches and hosted plenty of surfers over the years. The longest I hosted was ten days when two guys from the UK came to stay at my place in Vancouver ... they had only planned to stay for a few days, but had such a great time that they extended their trip. I later spent time with them in England. I've also hosted people from Iceland and around the US.
I'm hoping to meet a lot of people traveling in Europe this summer, whether while surfing their couch or at some events.

Teach, Learn, Share
I can definitely teach computer programming, also music theory (although I'm definitely getting rusty in that area), and I have tons of random little skills that I'm not great at, but can definitely give some beginning pointers on ... things like rock climbing, camping, organizing, etc.
