About Me


being a part of the Cambridge technology culture


Accomplished father, product developer, conversationalist. Worldly view, with a good sense of humor. I love the outdoors, and really everything. I am enthusiastic about most things. Eating mostly a vegan diet for a few years now, and really appreciating so much more about food, and politics.


I seek to enjoy life at every moment, and not dwell on the past for more than a few seconds!

I think "we" need to clean up our act as humans, or we are really in for some tough times, and I am also optomistic that we can solve most of the forseeable problems, if we really get to work on them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted many times, each more entertaining than the last, and been to a few CS events in town.


very interesting, open minded, and mind expanding!, polite, generous, considerate and kind people all around!


music, dancing, eating, history, evolution, photography, anything that can be computerized, cool ponds on hot days, lots and lots of things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

everyday that I open my eyes is fantastic. My best friend and I took off for Milan, Italy, with only our bikes, and a couple of changes of clothes August 1988 or so, and rode from there around all the "Great Lakes" ending up in Belagio for the best two weeks ever. So many wonderful and interesting people!
