About Me


To get out of life alive.


No longer fake blonde, Blue eyed. Like Stewart Copeland and Ric Flair had a baby. I'm young looking but old internally. Waist up looks great. Waist down is shot to blazes. (Insert your own joke here.) I still look great. But I move like the lead guy in 'The Osbournes.' (That's Ozzy you hammerheads.)


No matter what happens, finish the race. And always wait for the last flag. Stay Pure Gold.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Had my first surfer in 2005. HAIL! STARMAN. Finally I'm more than just an observer.


Italian horror films, vintage TV shows, The Acadamy Awards, cocktail culture, conspiracy theories, Hollywood scandals, UFO'S, American football (GO EAGLES!!!) & Japanese (& Asian) life.

Music, Movies, and Books

James Ellroy (especially 'White Jazz'), James Lee Burke (especially 'Burning Angel'), '80's Heavy Metal(Woooaaaarrrrggghhh'), '60's Psychedelica ('Duuuuude'), '50's Jazz ('Hey Man'), Euro films, anything with great dialogue. The Sound must be exceptional. Great looking & great sounding makes it a plus.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lived in Japan 14 years. Over a third of my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

NOT ALL AMERICANS ARE WARMONGERS. GET OFF OUR CASE. When in Japan, be careful when you admire something small. People may feel obligated to give it to you. Also, when staying with a Japanese family, be sure to bring a gift. Something small from your area of the world is fine.

Belize, Canada, Greenland, Russian Federation, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In
