About Me


I'm a wildlife biologist by profession and a passionate explorer and birder. I'm also an amateur musician. I'm adventurous, down-to-earth, thoughtful, and unpretentious. When I travel I usually do volunteer work and try to get to know the locals rather than being the typical tourist.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had a great experience as a couchsurfer in Bermuda and am hoping for more!


I enjoy just about any outdoor activities that don't involve damaging the environment. I especially like hiking, paddling, birdwatching, and general nature study. I also like eating out, dancing, and experiencing other cultures, lifestyles, and perspectives.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Working in Antarctica was truly one of the most incredible things I will ever do; the scenery was nonstop jawdropping. I've been skydiving and hang-gliding, both of which were pretty amazing. But even a simple sunset can leave me speechless.

What I Can Share with Hosts

If you have any interest at all in birds, I'm the perfect guest! If not, well, I'll try to be anyway!
