About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore and respect all the Earth has to offer.

ABOUT ME

I'm all about the outdoors. I've sold my entertainment center in an effort to make me both read more and get outside more! We have recently moved to florida so I can spend time with my father and learn woodworking. I bike in all weather in all seasons for as many errands as convenient. I believe a lot of the ways we do things in this country could be improved and I do the best I can to do things better, respecting our earth, myself, and the people around me. I'm a tree hugging, disc golfing, skim boarding, biker!

PHILOSOPHY

The core of man's spirit is new experiences. Go new places, do new things, meet new people!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love to travel and the best way to do that is while meeting amazing people through the CS project. I am always open to host some awesome people!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Spring break of 07 a couple buddies and i went down to bowling green for a tournament and stayed at a guy named Aaron's house for a few days. As soon as i heard about this site i thought it was the best thing ever, and after staying with someone we met through this site i feel bad for not signing up sooner!

08 spring break we went on a huge Disc Golf tour from Wisconsin through Colorado to California and down through Texas and back, staying at a new person's house every night. It was an AMAZING experience with lots of hosts, all of whom were fantastic. Just wish i had more time to spend with everyone.

'11 I surfed with some amazing hosts in germany and austria and spend more time with them and really did this the right way. i met some terrific people and had some of the best experiences of my life!

I can teach you about disc golf, computers, home theater, environmental things. Got a story? I'm more than glad to listen and could tell a few of my own.

It has to start somewhere, it has to start sometime. What better place than here, what better time than now.
