Über mich


Blend new Green business venture with desire to foster German-American relations and improve U.S. home construction


Life's best moments tend to come with my daughter

Love travel, getting to know interesting people, new cultures & their foods

Started my own business in early 2008 focused on making American homes more Energy efficient: Eco Smart Shutters.
[In Germany, most modern homes have external rolling
shutters. Here in the U.S., only hurricane zones even know what the heck they are.]

I have 1 biological daughter who is the
center of my world. Also have a step-daughter, and one non-biological daughter who lived with us for almost 4 years.

* Love to Travel, Read and Write (Camus is fav.
author), Kundera is right up there...
* Avid Reader of both literature, biographies (Franklin, Jefferson, Clinton),
Currently bouncing between
Interpreter of Maladies (Jhumpa Lahiri) book and Oracle Bones by Peter Hessler [Enjoy Malcolm Gladwell and Stephen R. Covey, too)

I speak French, German and some Italian; Learned a little Mandarin in Oct. 09 for a trip to China.
Lived 3 months in Montpellier, 1 year in Italy (Bologna/Rome); 4 years in Germany (3 in Frankfurt; 1 in Cologne)


Live Life Passionately and pursue what you love while leaving each person you touch happier and more aware of all the possibilities to reach their potential

Warum ich bei Couchsurfing bin


I surf and host


Favorite trips: China Dec. 2009! My Shenzhen CSing Karaoke experience with good people from China, Israel, Canada and US.... Thailand and Istanbul

Originally tried Hospitality Club in France with my daughter. That went really well. Joined Couchsurfing. Have Surfed in Houston,Chicago, Tampa, Cleveland,Tucson, Shenzen and hosted in ATL. Have had great experiences all over! I'll definitely keep Surfing.


Covered above, but could add planting trees, building the never-ending-treehouse, riding motorcycles, learning and reading as well as teaching my little person languages. Curious people who aspire do do some good in this world beyond satisfying their own personal indulgences.

Musik, Filme und Bücher

Before Sunset and Before Sunrise (Ethan Hawke & Julie Delpy) Camus (La Chute); Kundera (Unbearable Lightness of Being); Rober Fulghum (anything) Beyond Borders, The Constant Gardener, Downton Abbey (mini series), was addicted to 24 with Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) when it was still on TV. Pure adrenaline rush!

Eine tolle Erfahrung, die ich gemacht habe

Fatherhood - watching your little person evolve and change so rapidly...

Europe 1989 - Eurailing, Hosteling and watching the Events unfold in Budapest, Yugoslavia and eastern Europe in the months before the Fall of the Berlin Wall. It was innocence and dramatic change all churning at once. Some great things were on the cusp of happening and some nightmares not yet imagined. Camping out on a cargo wagon night-train from Budapest to Sarajevo by way of Belgrade.... Water, grapes and vanilla waffle cookies. Then, at dawn, dancing to in that open cargo door that wouldn't shut to Milli-Vanilli with the cassette recorder held tightly against my ear... and sharing the music with other nocturnal travelers who also decided to dance. A spectacular sunset on Mount Trebevic and then washing shiny read apples in a small Sarajevo fountain somewhere along the descent...

Lehren, lernen, teilen

Folks who have rich experiences and a positive way of conveying and sharing them

Was ich mit Gastgebern teilen kann

Place to stay for 1-2 nights. Own room.
Depending on lead time, can show around parts of Atlanta, but we're in the suburbs, so reaching us can require a car.

Länder, in denen ich gelebt habe

France, Germany, Italy
