About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I really want to make my life about seeing meeting and loving people in a way that few people really do. To love as the God who made us loves.

ABOUT ME

As far as hobbies, I love music and writing songs. I'm in a band of sorts and we look for any chance we can get to play and share our talents with others.

I also really like riding my bike(cycle) and going hiking and climbing and things like that, but nothings like a cool nite in with friends watchin movies or just hangin out.

I'm in my early twenties and I have no idea yet what I will do with the rest of my life. Every day is an adventure, or at least, it's suppose to be.

I wish to and long to see so much more of the world than I have yet seen.

I am a literary person. Things that others write off as nonsense in films, music etc... might strike me on a level that reaches to the depth of my soul.

I love people who acknowledge they have souls.

I exist for no other purpose than to love God and the Christ who loved me enough to die for my freedom from this dark world and to overflow that love, a real unconditional love, a love with no pre-conditions, to as many people as I can.

I want to learn about what makes people tick.

also if you want to check out my music feel free to go to my myspace

and this could maybe even be a source of contact

PHILOSOPHY

I live to love my maker and my neighbor. I'm a Christian, and I hope people don't immediately judge all that I am because of the stigma associated with this label.

I seek to love as Christ loves and to create and develop my thoughts and attitudes through my art and music and writing and to become the best that I can be, and yet remain humble before my brothers, friends, and my God.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can't wait to surf some sweet couches around the country and the world and to make friends in some of the places that I long to visit.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love Fitzgerald, Dostoevsky, C.S. Lewis, Shane Claiborne, and pretty much anything that I can relate to and yet makes me really think. I seek moments in literature as well as in movies and things that strike that universal chord that makes me realize that no one is alone in their sadness or in their happiness. We're in this world together.

I love and am musically influenced by Sufjan Stevens, Jon Foreman, the Arcade Fire, Bright Eyes, Jars of Clay, Sigur Ros, and a whole host of more

I can't get enough of The Office, and I love movies: The Truman Show, Pan's Labrynth, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Lars and the Real Girl, Mean Girls, Wes Anderson movies, CRASH, WATCHMEN, Donnie Darko,

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Probably one of the most amazing experiences is when my grandparents took me up to the top of some mountains in northern Wyoming, high above the tree line, where in the middle of summer the rolling hills and open meadows are patched with snow and clear glistening ponds. It was like we had been transported to some other place, some little piece of Heaven.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am not into like the crazy vegas scene that people think about this place, but I can definitely show you around the city that I know, and there's a few cool hang out places I could show you about. Definitely let you know about the good restaurants and things. And there's always Red Rock Canyon and stuff.

I can probably show some guitar chords or something. though music is something that I do, not something that I really know all the technicalities of. I paint now and then.
