About Me


Drink deep. It's just a taste, and it might never come this way again.


Lived in the outskirts of Washington, DC all my life and now I've been bitten pretty hard by the travel bug. I enjoy punk music and music journalism. I'd consider myself pretty down-to-earth, honest, and positive. I'm usually up for seeing or trying something new.


Your future is whatever you make it, so make it a good one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've had a few great experiences in Osaka, Bratislava, Budapest, and Beijing. Couchsurfing also helped me find an apartment in Madrid. Couchsurfers seem to be open, friendly, and extremely helpful. I appreciate all they've done for me!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- I was the support driver for an amazing team in the first ever International Unicycle Race. Ride the Lobster 2008, Nova Scotia.
- Fed monkeys in the mountains surrounding Kyoto, Japan.
- Sat in the cockpit of a single engine plane that's older than me and flew over sights surronding Prague.
- been to the northernmost point of Scotland's Lewis isle
- climbed Britain's tallest mountain, Ben Nevis.
- US road trip - coast to coast and back with a load of national parks
- The Pyrenees

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to swim, figure skate, play a few chords on the guitar, or unicycle. I could probably hold up my end of a conversation on punk rock or hardcore punk.

I'd appreciate a lesson on your native language, a crash course on any world history you enjoy, and any book recommendations - especially science fiction, non-fiction novels, or comedy.
