About Me


I've been in the education field all my life and think education comes in 3 forms...1.) Reading 2.) Travel 3.) Schools (formal education) that order. If I can help educate anyone through the aspects of travel then I want to be of assistance.


Principled, Honest, Staightforward, Generous.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting this year to set up possible couches for my trip AROUND-THE-WORLD in a couple of years.
