About Me


to explore different places, meet interesting people, and discover new and ancient things


In 2009, we decided it was time to quit work for a while and travel. Jessica gave up her job as an acting teacher and theater director, while Barry occasionally accepts a job acting or lecturing. We have been traveling as often as we can since then. The photo attached is Barry playing the role of Julius Caesar.


Barry: Schopenhauer says it best, "harm no one, on the contrary, help others as much as you are able to."

Jessica: live, love, learn.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At home, we both are in service professions (education).


None so far.


Barry loves classical mythology with deep interest in poetry, astronomy, and chess. Jessica loves to meet people and get a flavor of her surroundings. We both are theater people (Barry Shakespeare, Jessica leans more towards contemporary theater).
