About Me

Returning to Couchsurfing after 18 years!
Laughing now, reading what I and other people wrote about each other when we were young pups.

I am an independent filmmaker ( who shoots on celluloid film.
A father of 4 sons.
I live travelling between Southern California (USA) and Baja California (Mexico).
Founder of the Transborder Film Fellowship ( which helps produce 16mm films by emerging artists in the US/Mexico region.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I used this site while travelling in my youth and have many fond memories. This year, a short film that I helped produce is in competition at Cannes Semaine de la Critique ( and I am searching for a place to stay while I'm in Cannes.

I'd be glad to answer any questions you have!
