About Me


To truly enjoy this amazing world in which we live.


I think there's a lot more to me than anything I could ever put on this page. However, I always enjoy meeting new people, seeing new things, and constantly learning about the world around me. I like to talk, I like to listen, and I love to travel. Movies, music, books, art, food, wine, beer, animals, dinosaurs, rock climbing, snowboarding, etc. The world is a wonderful place filled with amazing people. I would like to get to know it just a little bit better.


Life is what you make of it. Also, that everyone has a worthy story to tell.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used CouchSurfing for six months in Eastern Europe, Greece and Egypt.

I've used it a few times in the United States since then. I think it's the best way to meet people and see new places.


A handful of people around the Mediterranean. Awesome people, great stories. I can't wait to have a couch of my own to let the travelers of the world crash on. With the amount of hospitality I've received through this website I couldn't even think of not giving some of it back.


Wow, where to begin? A wide variety of music, movies and pop culture. Books, art, and philosophy/theology. I love food and a nice drink. But, more importantly, I love the stories that can be gathered by meeting people from backgrounds completely different than my own.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once, in Moneglia, Italy I climbed up a rock wall dangerously higher than I probably should have climbed. The only way down was to jump into the ocean. I'll never forget that feeling of risk and excitement...

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to learn how to speak a foreign language. US schools place very little emphasis on 2nd languages. I'd like to learn one or two. I have some experience teaching English. Also, I know a few little tricks that make children laugh. And, I'm always up to learn a good joke.

Countries I’ve Visited

Albania, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Egypt, France, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Montenegro, Netherlands, Serbia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Vatican City State

Countries I’ve Lived In

Greece, United Kingdom, United States
