A man under a mission to groove, move, and fly.
Going around town, the most fun thing to do is begin conversations with everyone I meet, be that at a bus stop, sidewalk or cafe. I am close with my mom, Michele, and also spend a lot of time with friends.I recently completed my goal of visiting all 50 states by my 25th birthday! So many great memories!Currently, my biggest interests include bikram yoga, craft cocktails, fine food, fat beats, skydiving, travel, and meeting awesome people.
I believe in pushing my limits, and growing every day through new challenges. I grew up in Seattle and currently live there. I attend the University of Washington studying Jazz Bass performance. I am all about creative activities, especially ones that are physical. Cooking, dance, music and martial arts some favorite past times.
I also love the outdoors, and have found great joy in mountainous wilderness treks. Washington state is gorgeous, and had limitless opportunities to experience nature.
Learning fun new skills and abilities interests me greatly, and I hope to always be learning throughout my life.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I believe in service and karma, and hope to connect with many people through travel and hosting. Positive experiences thus far have shown that Couch Surfing is the way to go!
I have surfed with two awesome hosts in Minnesota, and have hosted some cool surfers here in Seattle. The excitement of travel combined with meeting great people is fantastic.Also, I have Surfed with my mom, Michele. We surfed New York City for 9 days, staying with 6 different hosts during the 2008 holiday season. Later in March, we surfed with 6 hosts in the Southern United States. We really were a great mother/son duo. Couch surfing with family is a blast!
I have visited all 50 states!
