Currently living on my sailboat in Thailand. I departed from Seattle on my boat "Rasa Manis" ("Sweet Feeling" in Indonesian language) in September 2004. I spent a year on the west coast of Mexico then sailed to South America. From there I sailed through the South Pacific islands to New Zealand and Australia, Indonesia and now Thailand. My passion is music of many different cultures. I return to the States occasionally to check in with friends and family.
As a guest I enjoy having a "home base" from where I can visit family and friends and explore the surroundings. I'm a quiet person but also enjoy conversations. Having lived on a boat so long, I am highly adaptable to differing conditions, comfortable or not. I like to cook my own food on occasion. I read a lot. My interests are global and cultural. I can talk about secret society dances in Vanuatu or Buddhist practice in Thailand, the Australian economy or French influence in Tahiti. Life is infinitely interesting.
