About Me


To experience life, wherever it will take me, with great people, great music, and great coffee.


PLEASE READ: I LOVE meeting new people and hosting people of all kinds but our home is more than just a "free place to stay". Please take the time to read my profile and decide if you'd like to stay with me based off that rather than sending me a request telling me "hotels are too expensive and Id like you to host me" I hate stating things like this but I've received too many requests from surfers who just need a "free place to stay." I want to host people who have similar interests and want to make new connections. Thanks and happy travels! :)

I'm a laid back, easy going person who loves music and enjoys making music. I'm a drummer and have played in many bands in the Virginia Beach and Nashville Area. I also enjoy spending my time writing and filming short videos. I'm obsessed with coffee, I manage a Starbucks in town, do coffee reviews and I plan to start roasting my own beans. I hope to create a special Couchsurfing blend just for my guests. In the mean time if you love coffee, I’ll be able to whip you up something delicious during your stay. I really enjoy learning about people’s passions and what really drives them. Im currently doing a podcast where I interview creative people over coffee. If you’re interested, and have a new project you’re trying to promote, I’d love to interview you. I’m also an avid runner and do my long runs on the weekend. I enjoy making connections with new people and love to help out fellow travelers when I can.


I believe life is what you make of it. You got to trust yourself as well as trust people, and on top of that have faith in people. There doesn't have to be a reason behind life. You just have enjoy the experiences you have and make the best of what you got.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My girlfriend and I have hosted travelers from around the world in Nashville. We have also traveled the country using Couchsurfing to meet new and exciting people. I love to connect with new people, brew them a good cup of coffee, and make connections. Haley and I also attend the weekly Couchsurfing meet ups in Nashville.

I've had nothing but positive experiences using Couchsurfing. I've met people from around the world and I still keep in contact with them. I recommend Couchsurfing to everybody. It is the best way to travel.
