About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Extemporize Extraneously

ABOUT ME

I live with my wife and our two tiny dogs in the center of the city. We work downtown during the day, but we love to explore. We love meeting all of the surfers that come through, and have a great time hosting!

PHILOSOPHY

I only have 24 hours every day - why waste any time being unhappy?

I have lived in the United States my entire life. I have traveled extensively, and I would like to travel more to other countries - as time and opportunity permit. I love hosting people because I get to travel vicariously through your stories and experiences. Come stay with me!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I joined because I needed a place to stay, but what I enjoy the most is to guide other wearied and wayward travelers with a good night's rest and an insightful view of my town - a guide to the area. I welcome all peoples and I hope I can show you the true measure of my hospitality.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couch Surfing has only given me joy and amazing experiences. From Japan to Seattle to Key West and back, Couch surfers are incredible!

Interests

Energy Efficiency - I should be an electrical Engineer. I love renewable energy, electric cars, and bio fuels. I Wakeboard, snowboard, and fix jetskis. I recycle more things than I throw away.

Music, Movies & Books

I always have a song in my head, and so do you. We are constantly shaped by the stories of the artists around us - good and bad.

My favorite book is always the last book I've read. A very "Perks... Wallflower" view, but I like it that way.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

In the middle of a field in Bucyrus, Ohio - there is a place where for 2 weeks in the summer - there are fireflies enough to produce light by which you could read a book - clearly. I stand on the bed of my truck and looking around, there are millions of beautiful green lights, more than could ever be counted.

Teach, Learn, Share

Computer and electronics, data, phones, wireless, television, audio, video, home theater. I have worked in every electronics industry from car-audio to baseball stadiums to DJing, theater productions, and software development.

I can build it, re-wire it, re-program it, plumb it, patch it, drywall and tile it, replace the head gaskets and clean the spark plugs, and I can do it all under budget and on time.

Ask me about anything.
