About Me

Volunteer with my vulnerable children friends and then create an awesome Christmas adventure in South Africa


I live! My favorite things to do are sports (hockey/ skiing), stand up comedy/ improv/ and cooking. I love to travel, it teaches me about the world, motivates me to do things, have a better understanding of others, and hopefully I can inspire you as well! I feel best when I can make someone laugh or smile or creating something that helps the world, or when I am experiencing or sharing something or someone new; or being with friends and family. I would say I am a libertarian, and believe in helping others to help themselves. I have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for life, especially when I am on the road experiencing somewhere new!


Follow your heart, and always treat others better than how you want to be treated.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn about how the world works, and all the things I can learn that are useful. I don't force anything I know on others, but if I can teach you something that you want to learn I would love to! If I am coming to you, you must be a great person with lots to teach me :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I will make you laugh (hold me accountable with the threat of jail time or no food), smile, learn more about yourself, your city and country. I am also an amazing cook and famous pianist (joking on the piano, but what are the chance of the us both being by a piano for you to hold me accountable anyways?). If you like sports I can also challenge you in whatever your sport is (hopefully hockey), and most of all we will have an awesome time, the best of our lives so far!
