About Me


Let my roots grow a little.


I love simple life, interesting people, and fresh fruit and vegetables. I adore my wife. I believe humans are inherently good. The trust I have in my relationship with what I call god (you can call it whatever you want) allows me to live a beautiful and amazing life.


Live life and love it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Mostly hosting in a "free hotel room" style for now - usually in exchange for catsitting so my wife and I can get out of town. Honestly, you don't have to worry about a perfectly worded couch request. I care more about the dates, references, and if you like cats.


Couchsurfing helps my faith in humankind. I enjoy immersing myself in cultures different to mine and allowing the experience to change me a little, and couchsurfers help me do this. People who are willing to open their homes and have conversation with someone new give me a positive view of who we are as a species, and chances of meeting kindred souls through this site are very high.


I collect coins: if you surf with us and you are from a country of which I don't have the coins, I will love if bring some with you. I have other interests too, including humans, meditation/yoga, freediving, plants, sun, photography, and painting.
