About Me


Telecommute from *everywhere*! Live life well and full; celebrate the differences; eat butter, bacon and drink red wine; normal is overrated.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Traveling, meeting new people, enjoying a meal with them and touring parts unknown is a passion. I don't do group travel or tourist "traps", as they cut the heart and soul out of every great place. I also don’t go to shopping malls when traveling - unless it has a grocery and I’m in need of the same.


Outdoors, hiking, swimming, off the beaten path, avoiding tourist traps, enjoying good food, good wine, good coffee, good ice cream, and good company.
