About Me

**Note: I don't own a TV**

I want to hike observation loop. It's about 17 miles, with 8,000 feet of elevation gain. Possibly spend a night camping the ridges and make it a 2-day trip. Message me if that sounds interesting to you.


I enjoy traveling and have been to many different countries. The more esoteric places I've been include Mongolia, SE Asia (Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia), and rural China. I've also been to more developed countries throughout Europe and first-world Asia. Each spot is unique, but my favorite place I've been is either southern France or Malé in the Maldives.

I like rock climbing, hiking, camping, boating, and road trips. Always down to adventure.

Juneau's pretty small and confined, and it's easy to get stir-crazy. If you're looking for something to do, I'd recommend bringing a pair of waterproof hiking boots/shoes and exploring the trails.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Adventures. Come camping with me.

Have plenty of extra tents / packs / sleeping bags / etc.




-Outdoorsy/active stuff — hiking, climbing, biking, boating, gyming, jogging, yoga.

-Nerdy stuff — reading, economics, finance/investing, computer games, standardized tests.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail.

9 hour road trip w/ random Russian CS'er I met the night before...

1-year later update: That same Russian CS'er almost got me killed through torrential rains and hurricane-speed winds, huddled, shelter-less, at the top of a mountain at 3:00AM. Good times.
