About Me


Life is short. Saturate it with experiences, captivating people and winding roads


Ohio born, travel savvy photographer. I've been well traveled at a young age because of my parents. One of my favorite things to do was talk to people on planes and buses. Inspired each time, I continued travel around the states, visiting people again and again.

In 2012, I ventured around the world for 6 months (http://the-wanderlustproject.tumblr.com/). In 2013, I drove to CA where I have been since. Doing photography for my living.

At this point I don't really feel like I've left home when I travel. Experiences are much better shared with people along the way.


Live in harmony wherever you roam. Allow others to be free around you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing




CS is an awesome network/community wherever you go. I'd be blind to some hidden gems without it.


Photography, live music, climbing, hiking, laying in the sun, exploring a new place, cooking, drawing, surfing & dancing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Innumerable!! When I think back, I remember moments of walking up to the view point of the city, with whoever the host is and looking out over it all. Its like a dream turned reality. An infinite moment.
