About Me


Help people and explore the interconnectedness of our world. Striving to live life well


I think we get one shot on this planet to make a difference and leave it better than we found it.

I'm looking for cool experiences with cool people. Don't think you are cool enough? You probably aren't looking closely enough :)


Om - everyone and everything is interconnected. The good and bad. I find it hard to dislike someone once you understand their story.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I believe the good will of people is the only way to save our planet.

I try to foster connection with those around me.

I try to be the best person I can possibly be. I strive to "handle my shit."


I picked up my first hitchhiker and found a kindred spirit. I believe that everyone is interesting when you get to know them and learn their story.


Evolution, life, the power of volunteerism, laughter, sustainable living, happiness and fulfillment
