About Me


Learning and working, and trying to make them one. Trying to enjoy life in healthy ways, to improve, and live without regret.


I spent my early twenties making sure I was rough around the edges, and now... well, let's say I'm trying to polish myself up. I love getting new perspectives, and thrive in dynamic situations. I'm fluid and have the tendency to pick up other people's accents. I'm a minimalist and a non-materialist. I believe life is short and try to make the most of it without short changing anyone else in the process.


That was covered in the 'all about me'.
I'm a pretty easy going guy who works hard.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like the ethos and am a dedicated budget traveller. I've got plenty of room in my Pittsburgh digs, though I'll have to confer with my little lady if people want to crash. I need more surprises in my life, I miss the rush of adventure.


Oh, I'd say I'm a seasoned veteran. I am not a squatter though, I usually just come for weekends, or conferences. I believe in fairness and never try to impose, every good turn deserves another is a fair summation. I have surfed and I have hosted all across this great country, and a mattress on the floor is good for the back.


film, sculpture, interactive media, animation, literature, animals & vegetables, personal stories.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

An eagle scoop a trout out of a lake in the Tetons.
A marmot communing with me at my most defenseless.
