About Me


Saving the world one tide gage at a time.


I was born and raised in Hawaii. I traveled backpacking for 18 months in 1993-1994. It was my first time really out of Hawaii. Ever since I couldn't stop wanting to go to new places. In all my travels, the people I have met always made the trip.
I love adventure and sports and good conversations.


One life...I'm going to live it up! JP

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I travel for work and look forward to making some connections and having some fun experiences. Trying to buy a house so no couch at the moment. Can try to offer advice.


I arrived in Sabang, Banda Ache to do some work. I got a taxi driver and went looking for hotels. They were all full due to the huge influx of relief workers and homeless. After an hour of searching he offerred me to stay at his house. I met his family and played chess with his kids. It was very nice.
