About Me


Positive international interactions.


I am a stay-at-home father of three young boys. My wife, Denise, is a professor at Ball State University here in Muncie, Indiana. I am a former middle school teacher and might be again when my boys are all school age.


Philosophy?? Hmm, not sure what to say here. I try to have a positive impact on all I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I wish to participate by having a safe welcoming home that travelers can use if they ever mis-read a road sign and end up in Muncie! Once a year, more or less, I travel on my own or with a buddy and would love to meet people from all over.


We have hosted two wonderful travelers in our home. Have not traveled since joining this group, thus I have no experience using anothers coach.


I enjoy writing...novels, short stories. I enjoy spending time on my Grandmother and father's farm south of here....planting trees/building nature trail. Love looking for American Indian artifacts on the farm land when it has been plowed. AND, of course, I love travel.

O' Brother, Where Art Thou===Movie
Knut Hamson(Norweigan)author
Music? Older stuff....classic rock, classical, zydeco

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spent time hiking/sightseeing in Peru last year.

Teach, Learn, Share

Not sure what I could teach. A true view of an american family. A eye-opener about the impact of children on your life.
Hope to learn about other cultures...nothing more focused than that.
