About Me


to create music and to love friends and strangers alike.


I'm an observer, an analyzer and song writer. Music has been the most important thing for me for the past 13 years. I've lived in Michigan my whole life and ready to leave. My time is done here and ready for new places, new faces and new opportunities, culture, atmosphere and wouldn't mind learning a thing or two. I've always been drawn to the west coast and I can't quite figure out why. A calling perhaps. Maybe God's way of saying GO! And well, Seattle is my target. Life with me is simple. It consists of 3 things: Music, good close friendly people and God


Life was meant to be simple. I dont force God on people, but I believe in Him and talk with him. You live once here on this it up and share it at the same time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I never knew there was something out there like this site until some of my friends brought it up and it made me realize that there are people out there that actually care. That actually go out of their way to help travelers. I am humbled by this and I'd like to some day to repay the favor for fellow travelers.


I have never couch surfed before. This is new territory for me, which is somewhat scary for me but thats what feeds the adrenaline. You have to take risks in life to get anywhere.


Music, going to shows, writing poetry, reading poetry, books, drawing, walking, especially in the rain, observing the small things, like a little kid walking with his mom or dad in a park, trying to remember what it was like to be that innocent minded and free from the world. it makes me smile to see that. I stay away from politics, but I enjoy talking and listening to other people points of view and where they came from.

Music, Movies, and Books

the band list could go forever, just a couple are the Smashing Pumpkins, Deftones, Goo Goo Dolls.

A million Little pieces and My friend Leonard from James Frey are my two favorite books. They made me cry, laugh, cringe and just made me feel completely everything. There are more, but those stuck out most for me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing for me is not a place that I have been or seen, but it's simply, that no matter where I have gone in my life, I've always been able to find smiling hopeful faces. New friends. Friends mean a lot to me. And having the man upstairs guide my steps.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to learn new things. New points of view, new ways of living, new ways of helping when I can. There is not a lot I have to offer when it comes thing (materials) but my mind is open. my heart is open. I'm here for anyone needs. I'd like to share my experiences with people not to talk but to show diversity and lessons. To share my labor and intellectualism along with what has been given me.
