About Me


To travel where no one has traveled before, and a few other places.


I am a friendly person and open-minded. I enjoy travel and meeting new people. I am gay, single, and have been widowed twice in two long-term relationships (of 17 years and 7 years respectively). I have one cat. I have hosted two German exchange students from Dresden and a Swiss student.


Live and let live. Be friendly and honest and expect others to be friendly and honest in return. I am very liberal/progressive politically. I am not religious. I am open to all people regardless of who they are.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have been hosted twice via CS and have a standing offer to host visitors in my city. I have hosted one US couple twice and a traveler from Germany, and it was a delightful experience.


I have stayed with non-CS friends in Germany, the Netherlands and in London. I have been hosted and hosted via CouchSurfing.


Writing, reading, gardening, walking, watching television, watching movies, talking with friends, playing games, enjoying a good stout or other beer.

Music, Movies & Books

I am a movie buff. Art house films, independent movies, blockbusters, film noir, Steely Dan, good novels, games

Currently reading popular history books by Erik Larson.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I can't just tell you ONE thing. I saw the Beatles perform live. (Yes, I know how old I am.) I took a hot-air balloon trip near the Tetons mountains in Idaho/Wyoming and two more over the Smokey Mountains near Asheville, NC. I've been to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and St. Peters in Vatican City. I have been in the crown (now closed to the public) of the Statue of Liberty. I met Jimmy Carter in person before he was President.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a retired technical writer and can teach skills and share experiences. I love movies and TV, and love to do so with others. I love board games such as Scrabble. My favorite places to visit are near beaches.
