About Me


To gain worldly experiences, primarily through culinary exploration.


After growing up in Dayton, I went to school in Columbus where I found an eclectic group of great friends. We split our time effectively between academics and dive bars (Bernie's, Larry's, the Stube, the 'Dube, Cafe Bourbon Street for anybody familiar with the area).

Upon graduating, I accepted a job with Nestle in Cleveland. I've been here for 4 years, and I've lived in 4 different neighborhoods. I spent a year in each; Ohio City, Cleveland Heights, Shaker Square, South Euclid. I've made some great friends, co-founded the Mustachio Bashio (, played kickball on Progressive Field, and eaten my way across the city.

I'm always looking for new experiences and opportunities both here in Cleveland and abroad. Though I haven't traveled extensively, I'm hoping to remedy that through CS.


It's a work in progress.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


None yet, but I'm hoping that will change soon.


Cooking, eating, drinking (craft beer and bourbon mostly, but High Life has a special place in my heart).

Rec league sports that lean more towards camaraderie than competition.
