About Me


Being lovers of different cultures, we want to bring other cultures to our door (and couch).


We are drawn to CS because we are very into building community in new and creative ways. Each of us has an interest in other cultures too. Our family includes a dog and 4 cats...a gentle caution for those with allergies or fear of big, barking dogs :)


Each day we are given the opportunity to recreate ourselves...hopefully growing into better versions of our own unique selves. I want my headstone to read: Work in progress.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We really love hosting on a regular basis and couchsurfed through India February '09 and Germany and Poland in '11. We happily host more than we surf and have made several lifelong friends (some are more like family).


Enriching! For me, sharing the CS experience with my son and daughter since they were young teens has been amazing.


Hiking, snowboarding, freecycling, Scrabble and crosswords, computer technology, art, music (listening and creating), animals, the environment, and finding new ways to bring people together...the only way we will all survive as residents of the same planet.

Music, Movies, and Books

Very diverse. Ask us when we're together.
