Hey, I'm Jefre!
Austin, Texas, United States · Member since May 2011

Personal Description

I have reinvented myself many times. I am currently in the process of reinvention number 5. Exploring the world and looking for opportunities to use my mission and passions that have developed rapidly over the past 5 years to help others. I do not smoke and I only sample local beer and wine from the countries I am touring on my travels. Not much of a club person. Enjoy meeting different people and discussing history, politics, religion and culture. I do enjoy live music.

How I Participate in CS

I love to host people and have thousands of friends in my hometown of Austin, Texas, USA and can connect anyone visiting with someone they can relate to and enjoy meeting for social or business purposes.

I am currently on a 1.5 year around the world experiential trip of a lifetime from June 1st, 2010 to November, 1st 2011. Perhaps I will meet you in your hometown or on the road less traveled.

(website hidden) Experience

Several through CS in Asia, Australia, Eastern Europe and Russia as well as many through friends across the US on long driving trips of 2 to 3 months in duration.

I have been an assistant dance instructor in Country Western and Swing dancing for the last 3 years and I love to share the joy of partner dancing with others and learn new dances from others.

One Amazing Thing I've Seen or Done

Seeing and driving to the bottom of Copper Canyon in Western Mexico. Very remote and dangerous trip but amazingly beautiful.
