About Me


man, I don't really have a mission...I just try to be happy and make each day a bit better than the last.


I am a very positive person when it comes to things in my life and what the future holds. I don't worry about things as nearly as much as my wife would probably like.


If it's not fun, don't do it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to host/meet up with travelers whenever my schedule allows. I am very outgoing and pretty easy to get along with. Also because of my teaching schedule I generally have decent blocks of time during the day but nights are a bit more difficult.


My wife and I have hosted folks from Germany, Norway, Brazil, USA, Turkey to name a few places. If you stay with us we love to have you (with our help of course) prepare a local dish from your country....and after we add it to our recipe book. If you don't cook we can look something up on the internet and try together!


Being with my friends. Playing cards with my wife. Listening to new (to me) music. Going to soccer games. Walking down the street on pretty days. Naps. Watching movies. Being in cold weather. trying new food.

I am sure I have others, but this is what comes to mind right now

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled for 2 weeks in Uruguay, Argentina, and Paraguay, and part of Brazil...mostly by myself. This was the first time I have ever had to rely only on my Portuguese to communicate. It was a liberating experience.
