About Me

Music, Green Building and Eco-Biz in New Orleans

I've been involved with rebuilding in post-Katrina New Orleans (NOLA) 2006-2010

This past 4 years (2011-14) I've been getting back into nutrition, alternative health and eco-biz.

After spending the past 8 months surfing between Quebec and New England I`m thinking ``Hmmm ... maybe move up here for awhile ... at least split time between NOLA and the Northeast !!!``

Every day is an adventure ...

When you forget , just remember !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'll have to think about that a bit ...
well right now I'm travelling and hope to meet cool folks along the way.
Better for a local to show you around ...

I love when visitors come to NOLA ... good food, good music, good people !


Just got the e-mail site while sitting on a friend's couch in Brooklyn.

I've surfed with friends I know ...
I'm looking forward to new friends.

One year later and I can say I've met the most friendly people ever! I guess when you've got a travellin' bone you tend to be open to new ideas and experiences !!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Getting snowed-in New Years 5 years ago on a lake outside of Stockholm.

Getting snowed in last week in NJ !!!!

Hangin' out in a cabin in Val-David, Quebec.

Teach, Learn, Share

Along the way, especially during 2010, I'm finding many CSrs reinventing themselves. I'm connecting dots in a way that I've only dreamed, connecting my passions and profession ... this includes music, food, health, environment and entrepreneurial activity.
