About Me

A serendipitous traveller. I love going to places with few plans and letting my curiosity take me where I want to go which has led me here!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Get different views of the world and share a beer.


I try to make the world a better place through business. I've done some property management, sales in renewable energy, and small business development in east africa. Always trying to leave a place better than it was.

Music, Movies, and Books


Dale Carnegie, Stephen Covey, Malcolm Gladwell. If you know any of these authors I'd love to discuss how you've applied what you learned!

Forrest Gump

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Living in east africa has given me a lot of amazing experiences. Mt. Kili, zanzibar, and safaris!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some basic swahili! I love brainstorming ideas for businesses and trying to execute them. I've set up a few small businesses before internationally.

What I Can Share with Hosts

So many stories. Motorcycle rides through vietnam, partying on disappearing islands, running with elite Kenyans, watching an exorcism, and oh so much more!

If you're running a business I like exchanging business ideas as well.

Countries I’ve Visited

Argentina, Brazil, Cambodia, China, Japan, Kenya, Laos, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In
