About Me


Make the world a slower place


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.


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


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.


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


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.
