i am a 25 year old guy from medford, oregon. i enjoy traveling, singing, music, acting, dancing, exploring, hiking, learning new languages, experiencing new cultures, photography, marine life, oceans, rivers, helping people, working outside. i love animals and nature, and im a huge cat person. i worked on a farm in the netherlands, and on this farm they had about 20 savannah cats, which was incredible! im a strong willed young man with lots of passion for other cultures and travel, and am hoping to meet some like minded people and have some amazing experiences here on couchsurfing!

PHILOSOPHY

the only thing in life is to love, help, and be gracious for all you have, and share what you know and love with others. See everything, experience what you can, and be happy that you are you.

Nothing bad ever happens, things just happen. Its up to you on how you want to view the situation. If it feels bad or hurts, look at is as a sacrifice, something good will come out of it.

happiness is only real when shared.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

traveling to europe will most definitely be the most exciting thing ive ever done, but other than that, traveling through the u.s. and singing the national anthem at the University of San Francisco have been my highlights. other big things include seeing cirque du soleil, going to new york and seeing shows on broadway, and being able to live in the beautiful city of san francisco. Recently spend 3 weeks in paris, and that was an incredible experience. i studied french for 6 years, so to be in france, in paris, learning more of the language, the culture, the surroundings, etc was absolutely breathtaking. most recently i was honored with the opportunity to go to the pantheon in rome during a storm. i stood under the oculous feeling the rain on my face, and the thunder outside. it was very magical, definitely a moment ill never forget. Going to prague was an extremely wonderful experience, so much thatni plan to move there. Stayin at the shambala on the south coast of turkey.
