About Me


reaching out to others so they can experience life as I see it near Disney


I have had the opportunity of traveling to see the great sites of the world. Sites do not contribute to ones education as well as the people with whom you can interact. This is the real education I have enjoyed.

University educated in Finance and further in Mathematics; Served in the US Navy during the Vietnam Era - I did not serve in the country of Vietnam but was based out of Charleston, South Carolina - doing work in the Caribbean.


Great to get up each day to experience a new beginning.

Love to travel -- sometimes with friends sometimes alone and it is those times when it would be wonderful to have someone else to share some of my hours as some hours feel lonely when not conversing and sharing time with another being even if it is strictly a silent sharing.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have met CS folks around the world. We have gathered for a drink or just to bring their groups together so they can meet to share ideas with each other. I have been instrumental in having it happen. We all benefit.

Like to see more involvement of the CS groups here in the Orlando area of Florida.


Orlando is a fun town. Disney World is very close to my home. While Disney is nice we also have Universal Studios; Sea World along with Cape Kennedy about an hour drive away from here. At Sea World you can swim with the sharks. Nearby is Fantasy of Flight where you can fly in a bi-plane. Another experience is to fly in a helicopter while watching the fireworks which happen nightly at Disney. In the old Cypress Gardens we now have Legoland. If you are still looking for more to do then check out these local websites:
orlandocircusschool.com and the
we have more fun things to do here than in many other areas of the country yet if Walt Disney did not bring his park here I doubt any of the other experiences would ever have existed. Come and Enjoy Your Life!!!


Interaction with People -

Music, Movies & Books

I enjoy listening to the sound of the Harp, yet many types of music can be enjoyed at different times but certainly not into reggae or hard rock.. I have had my times enjoying some of these but no longer interested in them.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

i enjoy traveling... no one amazing thing.. but with CS have been able to meet and travel with many young people - Now I am in Europe.
Travel is excitement ..brings meaning to my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like people who are not glued to a tube. In my home the TVs are not connected to anything at this point in time so either let us speak or read or have your own computer.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I have traveled a lot in life. i have met many interesting people and have visited many great countries. locals have shown me special places within their community and i try to do the same when others visit with me too.
