About Me

I'm moving in April with my girlfriend and she's not a huge fan of Couchsurfing. So I most likely won't be able to host afterward April. So until then, I'll be hosting folks like it's going out of business. Sunday-Mondays and Wednesday-Friday nights are the best for me. Feb 1-8 will be wide open to host anyone.

I am an outgoing person who loves to discover new things. I love to explore the town I call home Chicago because I'm usually preoccupied with traveling to other places. I'm very open to meeting all type of people. I would be able to help someone tour the city. I've have a sense of adventure that has been growing every day which has lead me to help others to travel the world. During my day job, I find people to give money to go to school. I basically provide an opportunity for young students, so it seems natural to provide an opportunity for those that travel.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The hardest thing about traveling is finding a freaking place to stay. I've overpaid paid for a hotel only to sleep there for a couple of hours. It really takes money away from what you want to do while on holiday. I'm also doing it to meet different people from around the world as I start to travel more and more.


Obviously I love to travel and try new foods. I have also have a huge love for international football even when it's not the world cup. Lately I've been getting into mixed martial arts and adventure sports as well. Very few things don't peak my interest however I've very vocal about things I don't agree on.

I'm still normal, I love watching TV and movies that really make me think or laugh my ass off. Even though I've been near Chicago I haven't really explore until I started working downtown. Now I'm excited about seeing what my town has to offer.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies that make you think after the credits roll. Movies such as inception, memento and Interstellar. I usually like most type of music and I'm just starting to become a bigger reader. I've been spending more time reading on the train.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Fill out this entire profile!

I've backpacked my way around London and Paris, making friends along the way.

Teach, Learn, Share

I able to share my knowledge of some of the lesser known places in Chicago with those who visit. I'm looking forward to learning from others across the world.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I would be able to provide basic towels and bathroom supplies. I just bought a new couch, so I have purchased an air mattress so I won't have the imprint of couchsurfers my couch.

I 've recently moved closer to the city and I'm close to a bus stop and train stop as well. I have a one bedroom so I can't more than two guests at a time. Additionally, I have a sizable bar in my apartment so I don't make it a habit to host people who aren't the drinking age, sorry but not sorry :)
