About Me


Travel the world, a little bit at a time. Make friends near and far.


I don't take life too seriously. Don't burn bridges. I'm open minded about a lot of things. Laughing is an important part of life.


Life is short. Have short lists.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My first experience was before I even knew what 'couchsurfing' was. But it turned out great and am looking forward to my next experience.


So far it's been great. My first couchsurfer wasn't even thru this website, but we've remained friends for several years and he even hosted me (with like an hours' notice!) a couple years ago. It's always a good sign when people I've met here have kept in touch. Last year I was able to stay with two previous travelers when I was in Europe. It's fun for the host to become the surfer!


Lately it's been home improvement. Love traveling and planning what my next trip will be. I've been on some great trips and excited about adding trips abroad.

Music, Movies, and Books

The perfect movie should have 3 attributes - it should make you laugh, cry, and think. Not at the same time tho. I love movies, but don't ask me who was in what movie, because I probably won't know.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skydiving was cool. Working at a nuclear plant ain't too shabby. John Williams directing the Boston Pops was a super concert.

Teach, Learn, Share

I used to make awesome donuts. Now, I'm keeping people radiologically safe. Yeah, slight career change. :) Always enjoy a good conversation even when opinions differ.
