Join Couchsurfing to see Michael’s full profile. It’s free!
Currently traveling through Colombia and heading south through Peru. I rarely like to party and am more interested in learning, music, and coffee.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To meet cool people.
Couch surfing in Guatemala was great for me and I have had several strangers live on my boats, sail with me, and I love picking up hitchhikers. A friend of mine and I picked up two hitchhikers driving across the States and they stayed with us for 3 weeks in a small van.
Gourmet Coffee (barista/roasting/farming), chilling, photography, playing guitar, writing, reading, walking around strange places, sharing cool videos on YouTube, cooking, learning languages, and I really want to start playing team sports again.
I try to keep up with my martial arts (Jiu Jitsu, Kung Fu).
I just entered the world of free diving. Too many hobbies :D

What I Can Share with Hosts
15 years experience working in restaurants, so I can cook. Much sailing/building experience, so I can fix things and build some things. I would like to learn more gardening and can help around the yard. I have also worked in gourmet coffee and love the preparation and celebration of great coffee. I have a guitar and harmonica if you like to play or listen to music. Lately, I've been teaching myself videography and can make a video of your business if you like.
