About Me

Been vagabonding for the better part of the last decade doing anything that allows me to gain insight, perspective and experience in subject matter that I'm passionate about. Collecting unique experiences abroad is how I get my kicks.

"Everything in moderation.. including moderation"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I appreciate the insight and perspective from locals far more than tourist accommodations.


Outdoor adventures - hiking, sports, camping, backpacking, anything where I can immerse in nature.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lived for 2 years in a mud hut in a rural Zambian Village doing volunteer work. I'm talking really rural..

Teach, Learn, Share

I try for all three daily..

What I Can Share with Hosts

Fine cuisine on at least one night if the host accepts (I'm a good cook so I've been told), good company, a helping hand, positive vibes, and will do my best to accommodate reasonable requests.

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, Finland, Malawi, Mexico, Tanzania, United States, Zambia, Zimbabwe

Countries I’ve Lived In

Finland, Germany, United States, Zambia
