About Me

***Working/Traveling...Not hosting again in 2017. Happy New Years surfers!!!***

Interests: Big talk, landscape photography, live music and Montaigne! If we meet I will most likely talk about Montaigne and why he is the coolest mofo in the entire classical canon. Viva Montaigne!

Allergies: small talk, partisans (the pox on every one of you!) and dust.

I lives to hike and I hikes to live.

Oscar Wilde was right: life is too important to take seriously. I live by that motto (unless you get me talking politics or religion...D'oh!)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet cool people from around the world—even my fellow USAers. To show visitors the wonderful mountains of Colorado.

Interests

Hike. Bike. Eat pike. Build a dike. I like Ike. What else rhymes with ike?

Music, Movies, and Books

Junk (jazz+funk), Charlie Chaplin, Robin Williams, Montaigne, Rabelais, Vonnegut and so on.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Inspired students to read more; saw mountain lion while hiking in the desert.

Teach, Learn, Share

"in order to restore lucidity and proportion to our judgments, let us read every evening a page of Montaigne"—Saint-Beuve

"In order to restore humanity to our lives, let us read every evening a page of Vonnegut."—Me 😀
