About Me


To love, laugh, and play some guitar.


My friends would likely to describe me as a pretty easygoing, warm, and funny guy. I like to have a good time and I'm always respectful.


I honestly believe that the golden rule rings all too true. I think life is too short to be strangers and I really enjoy meeting new people.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I love the program and now have a growing number of friends to go visit in Europe. I was lucky enough to use the program on my last visit to New York and I have had only amazing experiences both hosting and surfing.


So far only positive and worthwhile experiences. It requires a special type of person to be able to visit and host complete strangers and become friends.


I love good music, good food, and good conversations. I really enjoy meeting new people and seeing new places and getting to take In different cultures and communities. Not much of a crazy party person, but I would be lying if I said I didn't like to put a few back from time to time.

Music, Movies & Books

love all kinds of movies (aside from horror, I'm a big softie) I really enjoy Indie, reggae, and folk music as well as some good ol fashioned rock and roll. I mainly just read history and current events books.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have been truly blessed In my life to be able to travel to a number of countries and see amazing things. The first time I saw the pyramid of Giza had me absolutely floored. Growing up in Yosemite was something I wouldn't trade for anything and living here in California just reminds me of how truly lucky I am.

Teach, Learn, Share

Although I'm not pompous I believe I have a bit of knowledge and philosophy to share. I'm also happy to learn and listen.
