Chi sono

CURRENT MISSION

To wander eastern Europe and Latin America in a 'slow-travel' way that appreciates people, culture, and scenery. To soak up community, be it locals or other travelers, while enjoying good food and views.

ABOUT ME

I like people, I'm a communitarian. I enjoy culture (my native one in the Pacific Northwest and learning about others), social issues, and progressive ideas. I'll never say no to a good beer or good meal. Outdoor recreation has a special place in my heart -- anything to do with hiking, climbing, snowboarding, or water recreation.

PHILOSOPHY

Live in a welcoming, compassionate, and respectful way. Say yes to good people and good ideas. Let the rest take care of itself.

"Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless - like water." Bruce Lee

Perché sono iscritto su Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm starting an open-ended trip that will take me through southeastern Europe to Istanbul in. After that, I'm heading to Latin America (Colombia, Nicaragau?) for a few months of WOOFING, working, chilling, going with the flow.

Once I've re-landed in the Pacific Northwest after traveling, I'd love to open up my couch to travelers far and near.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, nothing formal. But I want to change that. Even if I don't end up surfing your sofa, I want to meet people who are in this vibrant, welcoming community.

Una cosa incredibile che ho fatto

I turned down a good, full-time job to take this southeast Europe/Latin America adventure. And I couldn't be happier for it. Human beings deserve more of a chance to just be. This is mine, and I'm taking it!

Insegna, impara, condividi

Snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking grant writing, social innovation, and some random cooking recipes that have been passed down to me.
