About Me


To recieve an education not available in any University. I'm here to make friends, memories, and prove I can do anything I put my mind to.


I´m a cowboy movie star and a hippie-nerd band geek with an honest smile and heart of gold. I change my style with the seasons and my mind like the wind, but look for the good in all people and try my hardest to prepare for the worst. I try to be honest with myself, and if you do too than we'll enjoy each other effortlessly. Peace, Love and Karma are things we´re all here to experience, so do what makes you happy and the universe will provide.


Love life and everything about it, it's ups and downs, lights and darks, goods and bads. Reality is what you make it to be, and love is everywhere to find. Do the best you can, smile bright in the sun, and remember, if the world were perfect; it wouldn't be.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I´m here to make new friends in new places, help those that I can and be helped by others doing the same.


Have exchanged messages with a couple travelers online, but only met 1 in person; and she was amazing. So I've had nothing but positive experiences through CS


Biking, Dancing, Surfing, Wakeboarding, Skiing/Snowboarding, Longboarding, Enjoying/making music, Cards, Drinking games, Tools, Talking, Driving, Working hard, Partying harder, Reading, Learning, and most of all, Chillaxin. Ohhhhhhhh yeah.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Was in downtown Vancouver outside Roger´s Arena when Bill Crosby won the Gold metal for Canada´s Male Hockey Team in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, 3 square blocks of packed-happy people. Got crowed surfed along Robson Square for looking like Ryan Kessler, one of the most epic memories yet.

Lived with a small tribe on the edge of the Amazon jungle, where I slept in a hammock hung between two trees and participated in powerful spiritual journeys with Ayahuasca shamans.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am fascinated by energy-Kinetic, Thermal, Perpetual, Renewable, Quantum, Spiritual-and it´s flow. Once done my fill of travelling I intend to go learn as much as I can about new energy opportunities, Solar, Wind, Tidal, Geothermal, and work with green house technology.
