About Me


enjoy this short life we have


Grew up in the states, raised on the east coast outside of Philadelphia. Now living, working, traveling in different countries and trying to make the most out of life while I can! Pretty new to Couchsurfing but have had nothing but positive experiences and hopefully more to come in the future!


You're not promised tomorrow.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hope to meet awesome new people, though both surfing and hosting. I don't see myself staying anywhere long enough to host at the moment, but I have hosted in the past and will again in the future.


I've hosted many couchsurfers at a previous house of mine and have met some pretty awesome people through couchsurfing. I was living with a huge group of people in a big house, and we'd have at least one (if not more) couch surfer a month stopping through. I was pretty stoked about the people I met through that and decided to join up with the couch surfing community myself.


skateboarding, snowboarding, travel, music, tattoos, craft beer, home brewing, learning new stuff, building things, art, lots of other stuff.
