About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Have fun and meet interesting people.

ABOUT ME

I used to be a political activist, but now I'm just focused on growing and learning about everything that interests me. I recently purchased 12 acres on the north shore of Maui with a stream and a waterfall and swimming hole. I’m building some off grid cabins and I could use some help so if you’re interested in being a part of the process let me know about yourself and what what talents you can bring.

PHILOSOPHY

Any belief you refuse to question is likely false. Especially if the media is concerned. Too many people are trained by the media to be scared of life. Life is a gift we should enjoy to the fullest, not an excuse to fear that which is different. I also am convinced that "science" is the new dogmatic religion used to enslave our consciousnesses. I am not anti-science. I just don't believe modern science practices what it proclaims to preach.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My little brother swears by this site and has traveled all over the country and beyond with nothing but great stories. So I tried it and took a month long trip around the country, camping and couch surfing all the way on my moto. It was a blast!! Can't imagine a better way to make new friends and see cool cities. Since then I have hosted far more than than surfed. I hope to change this in the not so distant future and start traveling more as my daughter will soon be graduating high school. Also, last year received duel citizenship with Ireland due to my grandmother, I'm hoping to put this to good use soon.

Interests

I like old buildings and modern architecture. I love restoring old homes and building small homes of my own design all by myself (by hand). I also love to travel and visit new places, and meet new people with different points of view than myself. Currently I'm obsessed over the concept of shamanism.

Music, Movies, and Books

Shawshank Redemption, Neil Young, For Whom the Bell Tolls. Anything by Carlos Castaneda. All time favorite read to date is a book that's hard to get your hands on called 'The Web of Wyrd'

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I woke up. Oh and btw please don’t say anything about your health status. It’s none of my business how many injections you’ve taken.

Teach, Learn, Share

Ask me about my ideas on science, politics, and religion and you'll have a hard time shutting me up. All the same I love to hear anyone's opinions who is willing to debate them.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Friendly, fun, and possibly mind opening conversation. And I like doing the dishes. And I'm good at fixing things.

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, France, Germany, Guatemala, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Switzerland, United States
