About Me


To enjoy life, to celebrate old friends, to cultivate new friends from around the world, to travel to many places, to be kind-hearted, level-headed, and occasionally think outside the box.


Retired preschool teacher and director, usually kind and helpful but with a sarcastic edge that can be infuriating.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have had a great time hosting CS's for over a year now. Still looking forward to many happy guest experiences.


For a short while I participated in a home sharing site for gay men. Although it was great, it turned out to be a bit of a burden while I was working to keep the house in order for guests. Now that I am retired, it's time to try hospitality once again.


Photography, travel, arts and crafts, concerts, theater, walking in the city, Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I spent three weeks touring in India and Nepal in September 2010. It was sponsored by Road Scholars, the travel company run by Elder Hostel, and a fantastic experience. It's inspired me to travel more and make friends around the world. This was followed by three weeks touring China with Road Scholars.
