About Me


Reflect joy and God's good things into the world.


So a guy goes into publishing, stays 25 years, then packs it in, packs it up and moves his family to China. Midlife crisis or reassessment? I have 4 kids, no grand-kids. Fitness is a high value to all of us, and we have cultivated consideration of others in our children. For a good date, we like to hike, canoe, or just sit at a bookstore. But a free concert at the university trumps all that.


Life is more complicated than we thought. Be humble.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have no CS experiences yet, but soon will.


I play saxophone and guitar, enjoy reading, bicycling (recumbent), motorcycles, outdoor stuff. Love jazz and classical music, but other kinds also. I enjoy good food and fine company.

Music, Movies, and Books

Wow, too many to list. Groundhog Day and Field of Dreams are two of my favorite movies. Add The Truman Show to that. I read many books a year, mostly nonfiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I watched two of my children be born, all natural in a midwife clinic.
