About Me

Hey, I'm Ryan :) . Im an avid sailor and traveler . Love to hear a good travel story . I seek to enrich mylife through meaningful cultural connections.

**to any traveling motorcycles/bicycles** If you need ANY kind of roadside assistance, please let me know, i have a pickup truck with a big trailer and I'm willing to drive a couple hours if you need help reaching your next destination. I've been in your shoes and know how much a breakdown in the middle of nowhere can mess up a journey. Also always looking for an excuse to fix things i have a jack and tons of tools to get you rolling again. Can show you some fun roads as well!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm here to connect with interesting people from around the world with wanderlust or the thirst for travel!

I'm a firm believer in the idea of offering a safe, chill, place to rest while traveling. I like engaging in discussions about the world around us and what drives people to explore this beautiful, delicate Earth that we all share.


LOVE motorcycles and to sail. I once had a sailboat (fun story, got it for $1 and a bottle of rum) . Really, really into nature and chilling in the natural world. Like going on random road trips with with my truck, or motorcycle.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Quit my job, sold all my stuff and rode my motorcycle around the US for 2 months before ending up in San diego. No regrets.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach you surfing, or sailing (I'm US sailing certified and have instruction books if you want to really get into it) . Have extra snorkel gear. Would love help with learning my violin. Please help me cook some good vegetarian food. Please. Free Yoga sessions are my happy place. If I don't have my violin with me. I always have a harmonica in my pocket at the ready!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Mediocre violin music. Epic tales. Wine. And I'll probably want you to join me on a mini road trip someplace cool nearby. I'm pretty good with mechanics and if you have something that needs fixing or general labor i'll probably get really excited if given a chance to help. Put me to work and get me dirty! :)
