About Me


leave a positive impact


Nothing is certain, so I try to do the best i can with the resources i have. I am glad to live!! I am always learning and I tend to grow and change on a daily basis. Overall I have a longing to connect with the earth and its creatures, aiming for harmony.

I enjoy myself most pursuing simple endeavors and being in areas with minimal human population. But i do enjoy cities as well, and have a deep appreciation for the benefits of each.

In February 2013 I dipped my body in the Atlantic Ocean and started walking west in an attempt to walk all the way to the pacific. It was a year and a half long
Journey with all sorts of amazingness packed in! I made it 3,100 miles from Lewes, DE to Milford, UT. Due to the dessert heat and a longing to be around friends and family, my walk is currently on pause. I'm back here in Dallas, working and learning the skills I need to live a self sustaining lifestyle. But the good news is that I can once again host!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Spread the word

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Life is amazing.

Ive experienced so many amazing moments in life! When we meet let's be sure to connect and discuss some of them.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach snowboarding and skiing, how to roll a kayak, simple gardening, and I can give tips on living the lonely life on the road.

I want to learn more about: building a simple home/tiny home, brewing, cooking, advanced gardening, foraging, identifying wildlife.

What I Can Share with Hosts

-positive vibes
-endless stories
-playing some board games
-a nature walk around town
