About Me


To explore strange new worlds!


My close friends would describe me as outgoing, curious, complex, and loyal. I was raised in a home with strong morals and ethics and I try to maintain those principles in everything I do. I am adventurous and am a calculated risk taker. I like to know the ins and outs of a given situation but I'm not afraid to take a leap if an opportunity for personal growth presents itself.


I love meeting new people, exploring new places, and learning new things. I live for new experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I signed up a long time ago, but unfortunately I have yet to experience couch surfing firsthand.


I love making and being a part of movies. I enjoy writing, acting, directing, and producing. I love music and compose for film as well. I dabble in photography, love hiking in the back country and traveling in general. Overall, I am a very curious person and visit the library often to better know the inner workings of anything that I do not yet fully understand. Apart from artistic endeavorers I spend time meditating and trying to better know my own self. Buddhism, Taoism, and eastern philosophy intrigue me in general. Lately I have been working towards becoming a physician assistant. Medicine has become very fascinating to me because there is so much to learn.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love comedy films, independent films.....thought provoking films! I even enjoy the film making process. It is so exciting to see how a film can go from a script to the final product. As for music I am into anything that tells a good story in a creative way. I like to create music for orchestra mainly. I love music with strings and piano!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I am lucky to have seen many incredible things in my travels. The most amazing had to be when I was camping in Yellowstone a pack of wolves went around my camp sight at night. An unrelated close second is that I met my wife while backpacking through Costa Rica!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you anything you would like to know about music. I studied my whole life and have composed for many different projects. Also, I have a lot of experience working in movies and TV as a body double from my time living in Los Angeles. I can share those experience and give you some pointers if you ever decide to visit California!

Over the last two years I have been an emergency department scribe as well as an EMT with a rescue squad, so I have a lot of interesting stories to share if you aren't too squeamish!
