About Me


I'm an adventurer at heart with a longing for wisdom... As Mark Twain said, "Explore! Dream! Discover!"


I am a 25 year freelance filmmaker from Minneapolis. I love old films and literature. Music is a must. Just finished a four-month bike trip through parts of Central and South America.

I spend as much time as I can in the outdoors and camping.

I also love portrait photographery and exploring the streets with my trusty 35mm camera.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used CouchSurfing while backpacking through Europe in 2011. Currently, I am teaching English in the Czech Republic and I would love to meet up with travelers and other Surfers to improve my Czech and meet new people.


I've had only excellent couch surfing experiences and I've made many excellent, life-long friends.


Old French films, photography, reading. I love camping and canoeing.

I try my best to say "yes" to nearly everything so that I experience as much as possible. Adventures are a big part of my life.

I love a good conversation over a good beer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I recently finished a canoe trip down the Mississippi River with my best friend. It took us 64 days.

Started a tutoring program for East African immigrants in Minneapolis. I have met some of the most inspiring/amazing people.

Directed a short film in the Czech language... I don't know Czech. A difficult, but great experience.
