About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy life.

ABOUT ME

Down to chill in the sun, talk philosophy, or walk on an unknown street, with no destination, and no purpose but to be where I am.

PHILOSOPHY

There is no greater beauty in life than that of the life and living around the world.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Once upon a time, I had a beautiful and comfortable, albeit salmon colored leather sofa. It is now in couch heaven. But my futon serves a greater purpose, one of giving those in need a full nights rest, without the horrible feeling of rolling over onto freezing leather in the middle of the night!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Looked out over the Yucatan jungle atop a Mayan pyramid, stared up at the moon waist deep in the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez with a friend, galavanted among the redwood giants of Norther California, crawled among the wild night things atop ancient mountain ruins, swam in majestic waters near Cancun, roamed the Western European landscape with nothing more than my thoughts and a poorly packed backpack.

Teach, Learn, Share

All people have individual and community thought and it can collectively agree or disagree, but what is important is how we choose to use our ideas and thoughts because we are all human, and we all share the experience of life.

I have a lot of background in Medical Anthropology; Alzheimer's Disease and subjective experience of the "self" in particular.
