About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Make the world a slower place

ABOUT ME

I am a pretty layed back kind of guy. I moved to this small town and started playing guitar and singing and that has become the passion of my life right now. I've done carpentry of some kind of construction for a living most of my life and I do some massage also. Winters can be very quiet around here so it is a good time for me to host. In the summer I am off to lots of festivals, so it is hit and miss.

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live is a good one for starters. I try to keep a positive outlook on life because see the negative side has never served me very well. What you keep your attention on build bigger, so why not keep it on something that feels good

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I haven't been traveling much lately so mostly I have been hosting people. I enjoy it very much as I get a sense of traveling without having to go anywhere. I have met some really nice people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

People have offered me a place to stay from time to time in my travels, but it wasn't through a community like this. This is exciting to me to be able to meet locals while traveling or to have the experience of traveling from home by hosting

Interests

Music, hiking, hot springs, Hang Gliding, siritual growth, travel, meeting people from other cultures, good movies, I am an artist, but I haven't painted in years.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: way to many to mention, but here are a few. A Home at the End of the World. The Green Mile, Beautiful Boxer, Garden State, Me and You and Everyone We Know, Duets, Music: way way too much to mention, but Amos Lee, Paul Simon, Bonnie Raitt, Sting, Jack Johnson, Joni Mitchell, Jake Shimabukuro, Djavan, Pink Floyd, Kate Wolf, Cat Stevens, Dire Straits, Steve Goodman, Books: Haven't been reading much lately, but Bashar was enlightening for me and now I am reading "The Power of Now" which is great.
