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. On that note I am pleased to announce that I will embark on a Cross America Walk in Feb 2013 along the AMERICAN DISCOVERY TRAIL! You can follow my journey at: In 2013 I walked for 8 months making my way from Delaware to western kansas by foot!! After taking the winter off to work, On April 20th 2014 I started back up where I left off and am continuing my walk west. I hope to meet you along the way!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Spread the word


I think the concept of couchsurfing brings goodness out of humanity, based in trust it forms a community of people sharing and caring for each other. I base a lot of my spiritual ideals upon what i have learned from couchsurfing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Life is amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

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

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