  • Beschreibung


    At this time, I prefer to host just one person at a time. I am accepting guests during the pandemic, although I will be a bit more picky than usual.

    If you don't have any reviews or work experience, or if you feel you don't have skills, don't worry - you are still welcomed here. I am certain you can teach me things I never expected.

    I'm a 43-year-old single male and I live in a highrise apartment building in downtown Dallas. I work from home most days (even before the pandemic) and I'm on the phone most of the day and/or answering the many emails that I receive. It's often hard to break away from work and make meals for myself often resulting in me having my first meal of the day around 16:00. In exchange for your cooking skills, you'll get a comfortable bed to sleep on, incredible views of the city, and an opportunity to experience many different cultures and ideas. My primary purpose is helping make the world a better place - I want to share my home and my experience with you so that you can pay it forward. Don't let my age scare you away, I act like a teenager most days; I make lots of stupid jokes and am laughing nonstop. I have lots of tattoos (and plan on getting more), and I listen to hard rock music. I definitely don't act my age.

    Loving kindness and acceptance are core principals in my home. You'll be expected to treat yourself and others with kindness and compassion. You'll experience a freedom like you've never known -- free from judgment, and permission to be yourself.

    I don't drink alcohol, but don't mind if you do as long as it's not excessive and/or causes interference with your everyday life. Smoking is not allowed anywhere in my building, including the rooftop - you will have to leave the property to smoke.

    I'm a natural-born teacher and love helping others improve their English language skills. I also frequent both a Buddhist and Hindu temple, so I can introduce you to those cultures if you'd like, and I can teach you basic meditation techniques and share my experience on my spiritual journey.

    I'm very fortunate to have been given a life filled with many experiences. I've loved so much that it hurt; I've fallen so hard and so far that I didn't think I'd ever get back up. I've met my all-time favorite band many times and was actually invited to stand on the stage for one of their concerts. I've physically felt God's presence on numerous occasions although I classify myself as a Buddhist. I've often been called "wise" by many folks - I believe "wisdom" to simply be experience, and I'm happy to share my experience with you. I will warn you - I have some radical ideas, and may gently push you to grow spiritually.

    Cooking 2-3 meals per day (I prefer vegetarian or vegan foods if possible), some light household chores such as cleaning the kitchen after you cook, and taking out the garbage. I recycle about 99% of everything that enters my home including Styrofoam, plastic straws, plastic wrappers, compost and more, so I may ask for help sorting everything and helping me carry it out to the recycling center.

    I'm also looking for someone who can help me with fitness training; there is a very nice facility in my building, so I'd like for you to keep me motivated to use it.

    I do charity work, and you can choose to join me for that, but it's not required. I'm an artist - painting, drawing, and photography. Assistance with a few artistic projects would be great, but not required.

    I'm interested in improving my French grammar and would like to learn German, Portuguese and Italian.

  • Unterkunft


    A private room or a bed in a semi-private corner of the living room - either option gets you a comfortable, private bed along with blankets, pillows, and towels.

    I'm walking distance to supermarkets, bars, restaurants, public transport, museums, parks, and more. You'll have access to free laundry, free wifi, a workout facility, and a swimming pool. I have a few board games including Catan, Monopoly, Cards Against Humanity, lots of puzzles and Scrabble (but beware because I am the Scrabble master) and a VR system/Oculus Quest that you can use. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking and baking equipment you'll need. I can provide soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc.

    Short stays are OK - even just 2-3 nights. A 2-3 week stay is ideal but I may be open to much longer once we meet.
