About Me

I'm an ambitious 29 year old entering the prime of my life. I just quit my job, my overland SUV fits everything I own, and I'm ready for anything at a moments notice. For the next few months Im focused on exploring beautiful places, meeting inspiring people, and learning about myself through the unique situations Ill undoubtedly find myself in. I enjoy good coffee and beer, remote campsites, fun mtb trails, delicious food, and experiences that remind me how beautiful and crazy existence is.

Currently driving wherever the wind (or couchsurfing offers) takes me.

December: the West, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, California, Arizona.

January: Mexico, Costa Rica

February: ?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

all the above

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food, friends, advice, my home, my city, my alternative education, entrepreneurship strategies, ideas, a hike, a drink, a conversation, an ear, a moment.

I'm pretty well versed in business start ups, marketing strategies, new business modelling, growth hacking, and planning your life to be free and independent. Id love to help you in any of these categories. I also spend a lot of time around boats and whenever possible would love to share some time on the water.

And I'm currently interested in mountain biking so if you're into that lets send it.
