About Me

Howdy, my name is Tim. I love traveling and learning about new places. I'm pretty low key and like to experience the genuine side of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've never tried this before, but I'm very attracted to the idea of experiencing a new place from a local's perspective. I want to go to the places off the beaten path and see it from the eyes of someone who knows it from the bottom up.


Food, hiking, reading, and listening.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite artists are Ella Fitzgerald, Astrud Gilberto, Billy Joel, Brooke Waggoner, Dolly Parton, Diana Krall, Frank Sinatra, Royksopp, James Taylor, Jamiroquai, Johnny Cash, Julie London, Luciano Pavarotti, Nat King Cole, and Sergio Mendes. I lean towards jazz, but generally love listening to any music but rap.

As far as movies, my top are CLUE, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Poseidon Adventure, Cleopatra, Rear Window, Doubt, anything Pixar, and anything James Bond.

I love biographies on just about anyone. My favorite book is The Twenty One Balloons, and My Antonia is a close second.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'm still doing it, but I feel pretty darn proud of being a Peace Corps Volunteer.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: if you have any history questions, or want to practice English, I'm game.

Learn: anything and everything.

Share: stories.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'd love to treat you to a good meal at a nice restaurant (I can't really cook). I could listen to you talk about your country and its stories/history for hours.
