About Me


Travel to the places I've not seen.


Aside from my family, traveling is my greatest passion. I'm a good listener — and a good talker. From my high school days until now, I've probably had 50 different jobs, 10 that could be considered careers: from being a hospital public relations director, to writing editorials for a regional newspaper, to being a college professor [NOT the stuffy kind!]

I believe in kindness and promoting understanding among people.


Never say no to adventure. Kindness.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Welcoming couch-surfers!


Hosting some wonderful people. I'll be looking for hosts in Morocco and Portugal this winter.


Travel, cooking, languages; reading, listening to my son play the trumpet.
