About Me


Support travelers and meet new people


I like out door activities. I like philosophy. I like enjoying other peoples art (painting, sculpture, photography, music, film, etc) but I'm not good at creating much of my own. I like motor vehicles of most kinds (cars, trucks, motorcycles, atc's, boats, planes(although I haven't driven any aircraft yet)).


I guess right now its mostly just trying to enjoy whats going on at the moment, keep my eyes open and my senses alert, and take in as much of that moment as I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted for almost the past year now, and sooner or later I plan on doing some surfing as well.


Great people and community. Nothing but good experiences.

Music, Movies, and Books

I heart huckabees

garden state
the royal tennenbaums
all takeshi kitano movies

I've been reading mostly things in the philosophy, phsycology, entheogen, chan/zen buddhism subjects latley.
I like most music. I listen to stuff from old rock, to underground rap to bluegrass.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

What isn't amazing? I think I like beautiful places. I haven't been that many places, but I like the redwoods and coastal forests on the west coast of the US. I also really liked the tropical forests and the large canyon on Kauai.
