About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To learn and cook the national dish of every country I travel to.

PHILOSOPHY

WORK HARD, AND PLAY HARDER!!!!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I attend the weekly Yakitori Boy CS gathering.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first CS experience was in Rome/Sicily and it was AWSOME. My host was the most kind and generous person ever and I would not have been able to experience the REAL Italy without her help and guidance. Thanks

Now I am looking forward to having a positive and cultural rewarding Couch surfing experience every time.

Interests

I have many interests below are just and abbrevated list of some of them:
Camping, Backpacking, Hiking, Aniamls, Long Drives, Cooking, Travel, Football(USA), Military History, Movies, Sunsets, photography, Eating, Exploring new and exciting cultures, and having a GREAT TIME.

Music, Movies & Books

Troy, 300, Kingdom of Heaven, Great Raid, anything with lots of action and a spritz of history is right up my alley. Hip Hop, RnB, Rock, Alternative, I like to read biographies, and memoirs.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of the Most Amazing things that I have done was taking part in the rebuilding of a village in Peru after the earthquake. Most Amazing thing that I have seen was a hostel after I Took a 7 day trek through the jungle in Chiang Mai (it was not the beginner course as advertised).

Teach, Learn, Share

I could definately teach a Realestate 101 (the art of flipping) I will try to make that brief. I would love to learn how to cook the National dish (calling all chefs). And I would like to share my time in exchange for yours.
