About Me

***Not doing a lot of hosting these daze but a well-written request has a decent chance of being accepted. Only hosting out of state travelers!***

It's good to be alive!

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!)

I used to be very political but the grand American experiment in representative, democratic government has failed and I no longer pay attention to the ubiquitous political stupidity and immorality of this society. I believe that the American government, in its current militarized state, is the largest terrorist organization on the planet and no moral person can pay taxes to such an entity.

Like I said at the beginning, it's good to be alive!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

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


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

Music, Movies, and Books

Music is the purest and greatest of the arts. I'm a jazz/funk junkie. A few of my favorite bands/performers are: Herbie Hancock, MMW, Thelonius Monk, Charles Mingus, The Bad Plus and Lettuce.

Books saved my life. I love the classics and anything that furthers underatanding of the self and society. A few of my favorite writers are: Montaigne, Tocqueville, Vonnegut, Gogol and Thoreau.

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 😀
