About Me


Tennis Travel kirtan health


I am an artist in clay, unfinished, Vegetarian. I live india at least 6 months per year.


one can teach anything one knows and one can learn anything one teaches. Life is divine and divinity permeates everything. Fear is the oposite of love. Live in love and be here now. Clear communication and clear boundries make good home environment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to host surfers. I want to learn about your country and your perspective on USA and the world. I can show you around the historical part of Prattville, a museum, and art gallery. We can take a walk along the creek or play tennis. If I have time I can take you to historic Selma. this is the site of Bloody Sunday, where the march for voting rights started and Selma is still a place for equal rights dialog.


I've hosted, and I hope to couch surf Europe and Asia some day.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In India people go into trance of demi-gods. It's wild. over one million people show up for the festival of Jaganatha in Puri. dancing, drums, cymbols, and singing invoking the god of the universe. its quite amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach meditation, vedic fire ceremony, kirtan singing, Bhakti yoga, ceramics, tennis, and indian cooking, english. I want to learn about your country, SPANISH, and Hindi.
I also know some wild plants to harvest for food. I am learning more about local wild harvesting and herbs. I've been eating Bamboo shoots all month. Delicious!
