About Me


getting where i need to be


I want to wander the globe creating music, love, and science - helping people help themselves and helping them see the world their way.


I see the good in everyone/everything.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to host and meet travelers and hope that folks are willing to find time for me when I am in their necks of the woods.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sarajevo from the mountaintops

i helped a 7 year old boy take his first steps. i cried.

I ended up at an amazing peace/music festival in the jungle in the Philippines in summer 2012. It was one of my favorite days/nights ever. I hope to go back this year.
