About Me

I get a lot of requests on here, so it's usually best to give me some notice. Also I generally only have weekends available to host.


Trying to take over the world.


I'm Chris. I just finished college a couple years ago and work a typical desk job, and am looking for a little adventure. I have a wide variety of interests, including music, business, food, dancing, and a whole bunch of other stuff. I like to go out and have a good time, but I don't party all the time. I'm pretty easygoing and usually get along with everyone.

I also play in a rock band! This is one of our music videos (you might recognize the song):


I try to sleep on as many couches as I can. Or at least I will start trying.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people from different places and with different life experiences. I also like the idea of having a network of friends around the world. I like hosting people the whole being on vacation mentality rubs off on me and it makes me feel like I'm on vacation in my hometown (which is beautiful yet I tend to take for granted).


All sorts of stuff. I love to meet new people and learn new cultures. I really like food, the more exotic the better. I play guitar in a rock band (, and am playing music all the time. I like movies and going to the beach, and all the normal stuff. I like house parties and barbeques by the pool. I like bars and clubs, but in moderation.

Music, Movies, and Books

Mostly comedy, action, and action/comedy movies.

Rock, metal, acoustic, pop, Latin, dance, industrial. Almost anything that isn't rap or punk.

Mostly non-fiction books these days. I like Tim Ferriss (that's why I'm here!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed a 100-foot cliff face. And headlined a big rock show.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live right in SoHo, which is main nightlife area in Tampa, so it's less than 5 minutes' walk to most of the cool bars and clubs. I've lived in Tampa Bay area for 20 years, so I know the area well.
