About Me


Europe this summer!


I'VE GOT A STUTTER. you won't ever forget me because of it. hahah

Also I am very interested in the middle east... and I've been there many times, so I can chit-chat about that a bunch.

I also like to experience as many different walks of life... I've lived many different kinds of lives and have some pretty great stories. Mostly I've just got lots and lots of stories.


I kind of want to see and experience the most radically diverse things this world has to offer. I want to be on my deathbed and be able to look back and see that I accomplished something - and that I saw a side of the world most people from my background would never have seen or experienced.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I occasionally host, and I also sometimes surf! it usually balances itself out :)


yeah my best surfing times were in prague with honza and then with jitka. good times! but ive also used this site to meet plenty of awesome people during my travels (Meeting Kamilla in Cairo for some excellent foreign films and classy adventures)
I had my first hosting time with Haley in summer 2008 which was pretty sweet!
Oh, and staying with Camille in her beautiful arabic house in Aleppo was an experience I won't forget!
