About Me


Be here now!


I am a dreamer and a wanderer, prone to stare at clouds or become lost in reveries; I write songs and work to pay the bills. I am a storyteller at heart, but sometimes I compose too many narratives about my past and future and forget to live in the moment. For many years I tried to wrap my mind around the universe until I discovered the futility of analysis.


All I know is that I know nothing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sharing, caring, staring contests.


Surfers are amongst the most magnanimous souls I have ever encountered!

A triple rainbow arced above a tiny medieval village nestled in the mountains of Southern France while a few dozen free peacocks roamed the empty alleyways.
