About Me

I'm active, ppl comment on how tall I am almost every day, and I personally think a lot of fun to be around... Haha. Most people describe me as a giant teddy bear, either way I care about my friends and people dearly, and I enjoy spending as much time as I can with the people I care about and meeting new people. I've always loved hosting at my current place of residence and showing people the things I enjoy, nothing like spreading the love. And always up for trying something new.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've traveled to almost 50 countries and hope to accomplish that this year, and over all my journeys my best memories have been from surfing. I’ve hosted folks from so many counties, I’ve visited so many, and will continue to do both the rest of my life. Thanks for sharing and thanks for being a part of this community!


Sports via playing or attending, music, playing the guitar, beer festivals, wineries, trying new restaurants, hiking, riding bikes, playing anything outside, skiing, scuba diving, traveling, road trips, a good movie, volunteering (I'm a big in the Big Brothers program), hosting game nights and cooking for guests, fitness, exploring, and being constructive.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love 90s Rock, and favorite bands have to include Collective Soul, 3rd eye blind, Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, and some today bands like Lumineers, Mumford n Sons, Saint Motel, and I love me some oldies too.
Movies, have to go with Ghostbusters, Groundhog Day, Fifth Element, Angus, Neverending Story, Goonies,

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've completed an ironman with no prior training or having ever done a triathlon.. All because I made a promise... I followed through!

Teach, Learn, Share

Love to teach some guitar, and personal training.
Love to learn about more guitar, and fitness, and traveling, and most anything I don't know or have experienced yet.
I love to share the good fortune I have had, and try to pay it forward when I can. I've worked hard, but I want to keep the good people around me no matter the costs.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Adventure, trying something new, but also a chance at a lifelong friend and connection. I'll be upmost respectful, take any advice you can provide, would love to enjoy my visit with them too if possible but I’m also completely fine on my own, and will absolutely hope to return the favor someday.
