Join Couchsurfing to see Chase’s full profile.
I am 23 years old. I was born in the desert of Tucson, Arizona in the United States, and currently reside in Corvallis, Oregon. I am now a second-year Veterinary Medical student, studying to become a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. My passions lie in the outdoors, sports, travel, and learning as much as I can about different countries, cultures and people. I am an avid hiker, camper, soccer (football) player/fan, and taster of beer. My girlfriend and I are ecstatic to travel the world, and make genuine bonds and memories with the places and people we encounter along the way.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
As a student, traveling is something that I long for, but is a luxury in its own. Any way to make my experience as immersive and true as possible when in a foreign place, is the way that I want to take. Traveling consists of many intricacies and incredible things, but none greater than the people you meet and the bonds you make while sharing time together. To be able to say that I have not only an acquaintance, but a friend, somewhere else in the world, is something I find to be very special.
A few of my favorite things to do include photography, specifically natural and landscape photography, skiing, playing any sport, playing any game with friends, and travel. From the extravagant events and parties to the simplicity of just walking the town and grabbing a beer with friends, I am open to it all. My girlfriend and I have also recently started a pilgrimage of sorts to visit all 59 National Parks throughout the United States, and possibly extend that to other country's National Parks. We have been fortunate enough to visit 11 in just the last year, with some favorites such as Denali, Arches, Zion, and Crater Lake.

Music, Movies, and Books
My musical taste splay to a wide variety from acoustic alternative folk music to classical orchestra to underground and popular rap/hip hop to house, trance, and dubstep music. Attending live music is one of my favorite things to do, and includes a long list of fantastic shows I have been lucky enough to see (Gregory Alan Isakov, Vance Joy, A Day to Remember, Aerosmith, 311, Kings of Leon, The Avett Brothers, B.B. King, etc.)
I am a passionate drama, science fiction, fiction and history buff when it comes to movies, books, and shows. Some favorite movies include: Inglorious Basterds, Saving Private Ryan, Kill Bill 1&2, The Revenant, Moulin Rouge, Star Wars Saga, 127 Hours, The Departed, There Will Be Blood, The Wolf of Wallstreet, and countless more. Some favorite shows include: Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Band of Brothers, and The Pacific.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Hiked over 150 miles throughout the United States National Parks in one Summer, including summiting 14,000ft peaks in Colorado.
Teach, Learn, Share
I am desperately eager to learn what life and experiences are like in other parts of the world, particularly in the countries where my heritage lies throughout Europe. I want to take away a vital piece of life lesson from each person and place that I visit, no matter how minute or profound.
What I Can Share with Hosts
A favorite meal, a hike, my experiences in school, a beer, a show.
