About Me


To spread awareness about sustainability, non-violent consumerism and connect with like-minded people


My partner (Jackie) and I were born and raised in Minneapolis, MN. I teach ballroom dancing, cater part-time for vegan restaurants, play music, practice capoeira, gymnastics, yoga, and vipassana meditation, and am studying nutrition and theoretical physics. Jackie graduated with a double major in Criminal Justice and Psychology, and a minor in Sociology and Spanish, loves photography, dancing, yoga, and running/biking. My partner and I are both longtime committed vegans, which is a bonus as we can make great delicious vegan and raw vegan cuisine, if you're looking to lose some weight, get in better shape, or just experiment with a new lifestyle while couchsurfing with us.


Love life, it's about the journey not the destination.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By spreading awareness and volunteering for CouchSurf.


My first experience has been fantastic. I couchsurfed in San Francisco with Kelly and she's been an amazing host. We went salsa dancing and biked around SF. Definitely one of my favorite cities to explore. On March 23rd, 2011 I attended my first CS gathering and got to meet some amazing people. The CS community is filled with so many wonderful inspiring individuals. I'm looking forward to traveling via couchsurfing and hosting in the future. :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I like pretty much all types of music, especially jazz, funk, and classical music. Currently reading Vegan Bodybuilding by Robert Cheeke, The Singularity Is Near by Ray Kurzweil, and the Cancer Stage of Capitalism by John McMurtry

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Completing a 10-Day vipassana course, eating 65 spotty bananas in one day

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach ballroom dancing, tennis, yoga, guitar, and piano. I'd like to learn more about engineering, construction, permaculture, and sustainable solutions to transition communities off of fossil fuels and onto renewable energy sources. I'd also like to study other dances, martial arts, and musical instruments and would love to share with others.

At the moment, I do not have a place to host, but would love to meet up with fellow couchsurfers and share stories and adventures
