Be happy, meet positive people, experience LOTS of fantastic things!
I have a lot of geek interests (computers, books, games) and non-geek interests, too (spirituality, civil liberties, animals, military, films and filmmaking, hiking, camping, Burning Man). I'm also an eternal optimist, love the meaning of the word "namaste," and recognize that everyone has an inner Buddha. Also, I don't smoke or do drugs, and don't have kids (other than critters).
...And I enjoy swearing. If you have delicate ears, meander elsewhere, lest my foul mouth wilt your flowers! (I can shut it off, but in my own home, I prefer to speak freely. ;)
Namaste + laughter. :)
Network For Good!
Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
"If a man be gracious to strangers, it shows that he is a citizen of the world, and his heart is no island, cut off from other islands, but a continent that joins them."
-- Francis Bacon
''Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.''
-- Maya Angelou
This, more than anything, sums up my philosophy about travel and about Couchsurfing. Love it.
Traveled in Europe, met with a couple of other couch surfers for camping, hiking, and picnicking in Sicily. When I moved to Napoli, I met and toured a bit with visitors. Also took weekend trips to various European cities, where I met and sometimes surfed with other CS-ers. I attended the occasional CS gathering in Napoli and, now that I've moved to Ireland, regularly attend (and sometimes organize) local events.
I have met some incredibly interesting, adventurous, and hospitable people. Always interesting stories to listen to when it comes to CS folks!

Une aventure extraordinaire que j'ai vécue
Worked on feature films, even gotten screen credits; completed US Marine Corps bootcamp; self-financed and arranged a solo trip to Burning Man (my own shade structure, even, yay!); climbed down Mt. Etna in Sicily; went on safari in Tanzania -- snorkeling off Unguja and Pemba, too! Besides joining the Marine Corps, camping on Mt. Etna was the craziest, most amazing, intense thing I've ever done -- AWESOME!
Enseignez, apprenez, partagez
I can teach you the basics of internet usage, email setup, and computer repair and maintenance. I imagine if you are using this site, however, you are already comfortable with the basics. ;) Happy to show you how to register a domain and get basic hosting, if you want a website. Can even show you some basic HTML for your first page.
Lately, with the blog, I've been learning a great deal about WordPress and social media. I can teach you about Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Reddit, etc. Just an intro, but enough to demystify it. :)
I'm into the "woowoo" side of things and spirituality, but I respect all paths.
