Have fun and live life.
I'm an honest sincere fellow just trying to get around in the world. I enjoy the simple things in life and try to celebrate them as much as possible. I believe in the golden rule and attempt to apply it in everyday life as much as possible. I'm a drinker but not an alcoholic, preferring spirits and wine over beer. I'm not a cigarette smoker but am friendly towards herb. I'm also a pretty fine cook and am totally willing to cook for an appreciative audience.

"The Road goes ever on and on, down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the road has gone, and I must follow if I can. Pursuing it with eager feet, until it joins some larger way. Where many paths and errands meet, and whither then I cannot say." JRR Tolkien
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I spent on and off two years traveling abroad within the United States, and met many groovy people in the cities and towns I visited. So far I've had nothing but fantastic experiences and I look forward to having more great experiences.
Spent my last two teenage years homeless surfing friends couches with my trusty sleeping bag. Most recently began to use the Couchsurfing Network to visit other places and get to know the people there. I've found you learn a lot more about a place staying with a local than staying at a Hotel and doing Tourista Stuff.
Overall I have many interests, and enjoy learning new things. The World is there to be enjoyed and experienced.
I'm kind of a Nerd, and a Geek, but I'm friendly and Sociable.
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: I like so many movies my top ten varies day to day. Some films that are always in my top ten are and this list is not in numerical order: Grosse Point Blank, Shawshank Redemption, Star Wars, Pulp Fiction, and The Hobbit (animated feature from the 70's).
Musical preferences tend towards the mood I'm in, but I can almost always listen to either Frank Sinatra, or Pink Floyd.
Books: I tend to prefer science fiction and fantasy, and a good pulp novel is always nice. Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaimen are two favorites, but I really find myself loving the Dresden Files recently.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
There are so many amazing and wonderful things in this world I have experienced, and will experience, it is impossible to say. How does one weigh their first snowfall or their first sunset, or the warm waves lapping at their feet as they watch their final sunrise against each other?
Teach, Learn, Share
I have few things I can teach that I consider noteworthy. I suppose I could teach you the finer points of checking ID's, or some basic bartending tricks. Maybe how to cook a tasty gumbo or collared greens.
I'm always open to new experiences and live for the stories of real lives told by real people.
