About Me

Younger twenties came and I realized there’s more to the world- so I’m trying to change the fact that I’ve seen so little of it. I have a lot of interests, and have yet to meet a man I couldn’t find something to like about him.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To find great people to spend the night safely, and cheaply as I experience the earth and learn new cultures and places.


I’ll do just a about anything once. I’m big into active sports of many types.

  • motorcycles
  • board games
  • chess
  • music
  • hiking
  • canoeing
  • skydiving
  • snowboarding
  • road trips
  • waterfalls
  • biking
  • card games
  • hanging out
  • euchre
  • fixing things

Music, Movies, and Books

I’ll watch, listen to, and read just about anything. Not into stuff with pointless violence, sex, profanity or drugs. Movies- my favorites are “Lord of the Rings” and “The Princess Bride”. Books - Charles Dickens is a favorite author. Music - I listen to just about anything except screamo and rap.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Saw a jellyfish while snorkeling near Haiti

Teach, Learn, Share

I can weld steel and aluminum, so if you ever wanted to learn i can teach some basics. I’ve been wanting to go farther in learning French.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love baking pies both meals and dessert. I use a family recipe for the best crust ever (haven’t figured out cooking in the maintains yet though).

Countries I’ve Visited

Canada, Dominican Republic, Haiti
