About Me

I'm a "third culture kid" living in a small town who has had the good fortune to travel and live in many parts of the world. I love to meet fellow travelers and adventurous people and am happy to host when I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Over the years, as I grew up in different parts of Africa and then as an adult in different places and parts of the world; hosting people was, and is, such a memorable and fantastic experience (in some ways I was doing Couchsursurfing before the website couchsursurfing existed) I want to continue to host and travel and and think this is a great way to do it.


I love love animals of all sorts and sizes. Tastes, sights and sounds that delight the senses. Good books that you get lost in and music that stays with you after it has stopped playing.
I'm an omnivore that stays mostly vegetarian.
Introduce me to new authors, artists, musicians and tastes and I will be very happy.
