About Me


My mission ultimately is to experience all the world has to offer and, hopefully, get paid to do it.


I am a student of music journalism from Seattle, itching to see, hear, smell, and touch the world.

I have a new found respect for the spontaneous relationship between two like-minded strangers, and crave all things foreign and exciting on a daily basis.


We have no control, only choice.

There is no greater purpose in life than making yourself happy and surrounding yourself by the best people possible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have surfed and hosted a decent amount at this point and absolutely love coucsurfing and the couchsurfing community. Events, surfing, hosting I do it all.


My couchsurfing experience has been awesome! Have yet to find a bad egg on couchsurfing (knock on wood). I recently found my new house and my new roommate on couchsurfing and both situations are absolutely amazing; couchsurfing rocks.


photography, music, art, traveling, writing, languages, cultures, and all things new and exciting.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: young frankenstein, little big man, almost famous, fear and loathing in las vegas, charlie bartlett, death at a funeral, the royal tananbaums, death proof, and many more...

Books: the lone ranger and tanto's fist fight in heaven, flight, slaughterhouse V, go down moses, the road, fear and loathing in las vegas, the rum diary, animal farm, etc.

in terms of music it's literally impossible to even attempt to form a list. I often summarize by telling people "I like anything with talent."

One Amazing Thing I've Done

done a fair bit of exploration around north America, looking forward to finding my way through the other continents soon.

spent 3 amazing months exploring Mexico and learning Spanish, got my eye on Costa Rica next, then Ireland, France, and the rest of the world.

I am quite familiar with both coasts of the states. Recently had an amazing summer camping all the way down the west coast, from seattle to san fran.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a student of the world always eager to learn something new and share something old.
