About Me


Physically active, substance free, health conscious, environmentally conscious, good listener, believe in compromise and cooperation, like all kinds of people, nonsmoker. I like to get enough sleep.

I grew up in Holland, Massachusetts and Keene, New Hampshire, USA.


It's amazing that there's a planet with life on it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted and I have traveled in Canada.


I have enjoyed meeting various people and being able to travel and do my sport affordably.


I mostly paddle a flat water racing kayak. I do some of those other activities for fun and fitness. I am pretty good at xc skiing, used to race. I play flute, keyboard, and ukelele. I like to sing. I like yoga, contra dance, contact improv, free dance. I don't like to stay out late. I speak French pretty well. Other languages, not so much. I care about ethics and fairness. I like science. I attend nerdy science lectures on occasion. I like to watch birds, and notice flowers and trees. I like cats, dogs, chickens, frogs... Right now I am focusing a lot on paddling.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like a lot of different kinds of music. Celtic music, country, folk, lots of other kinds of music. I like the books The Boys in the Boat and A Beautiful Mind.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I spent 2 years primarily helping out a close friend who had cancer. I miss him a lot now. I was with him the day he died. We had a very meaningful communication without speaking.

Teach, Learn, Share

I tutor math, and I can teach sports I know how to do. I am a personal trainer. I do Thai massage, which is done fully clothed. It is a combination of assisted stretching and acupressure. I like to grow vegetable gardens, and have decades of experience organic gardening. I got my bachelor of science degree in Human Movement and Health, and did my final project about mental health alternatives. I am glad to answer questions on those topics.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook healthy food. I can do some math/science tutoring, gardening, and answering of questions about health, mental health, and physical activity. I am willing to help out.

Countries I’ve Visited
