About Me

I'm a photojournalist, but part time as a landscape photographer as well. I love to read, travel and talk circles around history, politics and culture. I'm originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, but moved across the country to Washington D.C. after graduating high school. I currently live in Charleston, WV where I work at the local paper. I love the outdoors, but am a city guy at heart.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's been a while since I last logged onto CS (over two years) and even longer since I hosted or was hosted. But some of the best memories I have from the past 7 or so years were because of this site. From weekend parties in Boston with people from all over the world and driving through 8 states in three days to hosting people from around the country in my own place and showing them around the capital. I miss those kind of experiences, so Iv'e logged back on, and want to see what happens as a result.


While photography is my main focus and passion, I also enjoy playing my guitar and am learning how to cook better. I like to explore locally, driving to places I haven't been with no particular plan and going down roads not knowing where they'll lead. I love history, both ancient and modern. I also love a good book, whether thats a good novel or historical fiction.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm from the Bay Area, so some of my choices are predictable. My favorite band has always been Green Day, but I can appreciate a lot of different music. My favorite rapper/hip-hop group is Slug/Atmosphere. I honestly need to listen to more music though. I'm stuck in the 90's.

Some of my top movies include City of God and American History X.
I'm also a big fan of Game of Thrones, WestWorld and Rick & Morty.

Iv'e read a lot of books so it's hard to determine. I'm sure I'll update this list in a little while.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well, Iv'e been to 42 states. Does that count as one or 42 things?

What I Can Share with Hosts

Whatever knowledge I have of where we are, and I can always share food depending on what I have. I'll probably make something.
