About Me

I'm a entrepreneur, consultant and coach who founded and produced the Yoga Teacher Telesummit in the spring of 2011, and is now doing ongoing education and training for yoga teachers around the world. I am also working on a book about leadership, business, and yoga, and lead workshops and do both one-on-one and group work with clients.


Go deeper. Listen.
Be authentic. But be aware and sensitive to others, including non-human others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In all kinds of ways - I used to host a lot more, and have surfed quite a bit, but my new place in San Francisco doesn't have any common space so I'm only up for showing people around when I have time.


have surfed all over the pacific northwest, and in a few places in San Francisco and the Bay Area


communities of all kinds...
history, psychology, sociology, philosophy, ecology
all kinds of music, punk-vaudeville circuses
the earth and everything that naturally happens on it, in it, around it
i wish I could surf more...on water.

ecopsychology, deep ecology, history. building community.
I might try cooking up a little something for ya. I like to cook. Not saying it's always delicious. But it sometimes is. And hopefully I'll keep improving my skills. Would love to learn from other gourmand CSers.
