About Me

ABOUT ME

I am an open minded, liberal guy who loves trying new things and going on random adventures. When I travel I do my best to completely immerse myself in the local culture. I try to eat what the locals are eating and explore the local music/arts scene. I’d love to share stories and learn about each others cultures!

I’m highly dedicated to personal growth, and spend just as much exploring internally as I do externally. I can also be very playful and enjoy silly banter, improv comedy and improvisational singing.
.
I have a physical disability that has had a huge impact on who I am as a person. Although I'd love for scientists to find a cure tomorrow, I look at it as a blessing.

"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right." - Henry Ford

"We don't see things are they are. We see them as we are" -The Talmud

PHILOSOPHY

I believe that everything that happens in life, whether we asked for it, or not, is exactly what we need in that moment for our own healing and liberation. I deeply see the commonalities between people, even when there are massive differences on the surface. We all have the same needs deep down, we just seek them out in different ways. I value empathy, honesty, slowness, connection, intention.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To experience the purity of human connection, generosity, and empathy free of the complications of monetary exchange. I get so much out of meeting people with different perspectives and cultures, both at home and during my travels.
