About Me


To live up to my philosophy: morality, compassion, service, humility.


I'm a volunteer addict. is my merciless dealer. I love to dance and mainly go salsa dancing for fun. I also like to lindy hop but am not enamored w/ the scene in Seattle.


Life is an investment; a journey, not a destination.

Morality, compassion, service, humility.

I'm Christian by choice.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I can I do things with the Seattle CouchSurfers. I utilize CS wherever I travel for all kinds of things! I've even BikeSurfed and LongCarRideSurfed. One of my most trusted friends is a CouchSurfer in Rome. We only met the few days I was there but have been corresponding for years now.
