About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Destination Past :: Smokey Mountains, TN
Destination Next :: California Snowy Mountains =)

ABOUT ME

Hello & welcome to my Couchsurfing page. I hope I can create an inspiring couch surfing experience for you.

If you are visiting the southwest :: CA, AZ, NV, UT feel free to leave me a message. I can suggest lots to do around town.

I enjoy meeting new people & learning about different cultures and worldwide history. Especially when it relates to food & culinary arts =)

I donate my blood for those who need it.

I am a registered marrow donor. Hoping to make a change in someone's life one day.

How do I help the homeless & hungry? 99 cent store allows me to feed many.

I support & donate to our National Parks across the USA

I support & donate a lot of my time to various Children Hospitals across the USA

I do my best to reduce any carbon footprint possible from an efficient eco friendly approach.

Always Smile =)

PHILOSOPHY

Help those in need by sharing and learning.

Go ahead and take a step out of your comfort zone =)

At some point in time do what you want, not what you need.

Dean Karnazes said it best, "Just GO."

Give it your ALL.

Wherever you are & whatever you do, leave the place cleaner than you found it

Believe you can and you are already half way there

Don't just aspire to make a living, Aspire to make a difference - DW

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It's been a little over a few years now and I have to say I learned a lot from couch surfing. The sharing and exchange within different cultures are amazing. I am lucky to meet so many people from all cultures and enjoying all the great eats that come with it. I look forward to more positive experiences in the near future.

Interests

Can't stop exploring the unexplored.

An ongoing goal of 2016. Visit the volcano ranges of Eastern Sierras, backpack over the rim and camp inside the Crater. Care to join? Message me.

On my spare time I like to swim, mountain bike, trail run, tennis, hike, camp, backpack, snowboard, rock climb, card games, recharge my cranium @ the local book store & Letterbox(almost like geocaching).

Looking to learn more Japanese & Portugese and excel more in Spanish.

Music, Movies, and Books

Enjoy all music!

Movies: I enjoy all movies especially The Rock, The Town, & 127hrs

Books: Dean Karnazes :: Ultra-Marathon Man & RUN!
