About Me


Bring a year of retirement forward and travel Asia/S. America


Born and raised in Ohio, foreign exchanged in Switzerland, studied Nanotechnology at Cornell, built computer chips for Intel, and now work in manufacturing operations consulting.
I travel whenever possible and am currently taking a year off of work to travel Asia and S. America. I've been to about 40 countries so far and am hungry for more!
In addition to traveling, I love photography, flying airplanes (Cessna 172s), and golf.


“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would love to meet locals while couch surfing abroad and also hang out with like-minded people locally.


Last experience was meeting some amazing hosts in Belgium and the Netherlands


Flying (I have a private pilot's license in a Cessna 172)

Teach, Learn, Share

Professionally, I enjoy making processes more efficient. (that's what I do as an operations management consultant)
I get a kick out of making even little things as efficient as possible (for example my airport security routine...)
