About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring Southern Africa

ABOUT ME

I am always seeking out more adventures, no matter the size or scope of whatever it is. I want to learn, see, and have as much fun as I can while I meet great people. I love telling and hearing stories and I'm all about learning about places I've never been to before. I'm all about tour guiding or suggestions, and appreciate the same for my upcoming trips. Energetic, interesting, and fun are what I'm normally called.

PHILOSOPHY

I try to be the most energetic and fun person I can. I believe kindness and generosity will always be repaid eventually, somehow and someway. The biggest scene or most laid back place are just like home to me.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I would have to say that the most amazing thing I ever did was set up a sunset tour on the Great Wall of China, followed by a traditional farmers dinner set up by our guides wife, where food and drinks were plentiful ( four bottles opened for me at one time and something like 500 dumplings ) before we hiked back up the 2KM to drink, relax, and watch the full moon while we camped out on The Great Wall........

Teach, Learn, Share

Besides teaching things like English, history, US politics and culture, I was a professional trainer and lecturer along with an actor for a few years, and can give you pointers and help with public speaking and presentations. Also, I can teach anyone how to play pool.

I'd love to learn more Italian, French, and start on spanish, along with any Gaelic. Also, anyone that knows any gaelic or anything about Tahitti.
