About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Make travel planning easier so people can enjoy their travels.

ABOUT ME

For the longest time I wanted to travel but all I saw were barriers. Money, responsibilities, friends, and money again. Most of them were self inflicted. When I traveled I found a way to actually grow my bank account while on foreign soil. My negative cashflow dwindled as I was no longer obligated to many unnecessary responsibilities. I didn’t lose any friends, but gained more. I wanted to travel, and found myself completely indulged in it. Now I want to create a tech company that becomes part of the travel experience. All I saw at first was barriers, but not so much anymore and not I’m embracing this challenge with the same enthusiasm and passion as the ones before.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To share culture and experiences and hold on to the travel bug.

Interests

I'm interested in anything that inspires and moves people. I am fascinated how passionate people become over so many different aspects of life. I'm particularly fascinated by the commitments and success people make in all aspects the science and technology fields. Personally I like Jeep Wranglers, Ice Hockey, Sci-Fi, & Good Beer.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Just about any.

Television: History, Hisotry International, Discovery, Science, NatGeo, Sci-Fi, Cartoon Network, and of course the Travel Channel (I envy Anthony Bourdain)

Jaque Houellebecq's Platform which is an unorthadox delivery of a debateful message on the reality of travel/tourism through the eyes of a Frenchman, and way ahead of its time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Daniel Tammet learned fluent Icelandic in about a week! Jumped out of a moving train, but it wasn't moving fast. It sped up for everyone else. Ha

Teach, Learn, Share

Happiness lies within people. We were either created or evolved as social creatures, and we cannot be happy on our own. This also implies that having fun consists of 98.5630890358934% "who you are with," and the rest being "where you are," "what you are doing," and "how much you have."

What I Can Share with Hosts

My humor, some cooking, and great conversation.
