About Me


Living life to the nth degree.


I love life and it has definitely changed over the last year. I recently got married and now my life is full with family. In the process I became and instant dad to a 9 year old. We have an awesome family and I am truly blessed by my wife, Liza and son, Samuel.

I enjoy life. Each day, I am seeking to experience more, make a positive impact on my journey, and continually grow and develop as a human being. And along the way, have a whole lot of fun, and share in amazing experiences with friends around the world.


Live every day to the full. Make a positive difference.

Life's Mission: Being an expression of Christ's love, fully surrendered to God Almighty.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been gone from this site for a while as I shifted from MN to TX and now marring.

I'm travelling to Belo Horizonte with my wife for the world cup and our honeymoon with another Colombian couple. I realized this would be a perfect way to meet great people, identify a place to stay, and truly create lifelong memories and relationships as we travel the world.


I have stayed with a few Couch Surfers and told many people about the experience and how it's a great way to connect with wonderful people that you wouldn't normally meet.

I have not "officially" hosted through couchsurfing, but love to help out wherever and whenever I can.
