About Me


To be mindful and to love and respect everyone. Even the assholes!


I'm a positive dude that loves life... life is what you make of it so I've decided to make mine good. I have a strong funny side and appreciate people who laugh easily, but I also like to get to know people on the serious level. I try to be a flexible person and that's something I value. Let's hang out and you can fill in the rest of this box!



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've introduced a few people to CS, hosted, surfed, and met some great friends while traveling.


Too many to list, pretty much everything. But if you really want some specifics...

I love playing most sports, usually soccer, frisbee, snowboarding and racket stuff. Also hiking, video games, board games, movies, and just walking around a new place hanging out. I play guitar, piano, and sing... I mostly play music that I write, but I'd love to learn some new stuff!

I love meeting new people and hearing new perspectives... it's wonderful to be able to share experiences with someone else, even if it's someone you don't know that well!
