About Me

Some evidence: one of my surfers has a travel vlog:

I love traveling and learning about other cultures. I would love to host you to help you learn about Houston culture! My travel philosophy, “Upon those travelers who make their way without maps or guides, there breaks a wave of exhilaration with each unexpected change of plans. This exhilaration is not a whore who can be bought with money nor a neighborhood beauty who may be wooed. She (to persist in personifying the sensation as female) is a wild and sea-eyed undine, the darling daughter of adventure, the sister of risk, and it is for her rare and always ephemeral embrace, the temporary pressure she exerts on the membrane of ecstasy, that many men leave home.” Tom Robbins

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I served in the Peace Corps in Honduras. I also lived in Japan for 2 years teaching ESL.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd love to help with ESL learners traveling. I can share travel and family experiences. We can hang on my patio or go to a local pub. I can point you to all the amazing spots in Houston, my favorite city!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'd love to treat you to a meal at your favorite place, or would you let me cook for you? I'm also great at cleaning and doing household projects. Just let me know what I can help with!
