About Me

I like to think of myself as incredibly laid back and easy to get along with. I may be a bit of an idealist, but I always look for the best in people and rarely am I disappointed in what I find.

I'm a teacher. Most recently I taught Advanced Placement level Maths (Calculus and Statistics), but I prefer to think of myself as a teacher of character. I believe I'm at my best when I'm helping others reach theirs.

I have an insatiable curiosity and I plan on spending the rest of my life guided by it.

I'm a man of logic and reason, though have recently found a spiritual side of myself I never knew I had.

I LOVE new experiences. "Comfort" to me is just something that holds you back. If you're not uncomfortable, you're not growing.

Most of all though, I just love life and all the people that I meet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing mostly. (I hope to be in a situation before long where I can easily host, but I'm usually not living anyplace that people want to visit :) )


Surfed in Kenya, El Salvador, Southeast Asia, the East coast of Australia, and around the US.


Meeting and helping others, anything involving water or swimming, traveling, film, math, the outdoors, musical theatre.

Most importantly, anything that is new, exciting, and pushes me out of my comfort zone.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love all three, especially film. I've always been a sucker for great drama and great characters, but I enjoy just about anything that's well-made.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A couple things come to mind:
-Luging down from the Great Wall of China
-Petting a cheetah in Nairobi, Kenya
-Riding an elephant in Koh Chang, Thailand
-Climbing the world's most active volcano near Jogjakarta, Indonesia
-Showering under a waterfall on Langkawi, Malaysia
-Hiking to Everest Base Camp

Teach, Learn, Share

I've been traveling quite a bit lately and I'm more than happy to offer travel advise.

I'm a teacher by nature, math teacher by trade.

I could also give some swimming lessons as I was a coach for 2 years. :)

I'm constantly interested in learning. Anything and everything. Bring it on!
