About Me


To continue to expand my knowledge on the way the world works, to meet other openminded individuals, and to see and experience other countries and cultures in a way mainstream tourism doesn't.


A few of the things I love to do in life are traveling to far off lands, studying and learning from those who came before, spending time with family and friends, taking pictures, drawing what comes to mind, conquering wild rivers, hiking for miles, climbing mountains, exploring canyons, getting lost then finding myself, thinking, martial arts, climbing trees, groovin to music, learning new skills, meeting new people, and expanding my knowledge of the world. My soul is still nomadic...I've always had an itch to travel and see new places and I hope by the time I'm an old man, I'll have many stories to tell. I'm outgoing and positive and always willing to try something new and unfamiliar!


I believe life is too short to take too seriously. Theres so much to see and learn in this world and fun to be had and no where near enough time. I'm respectful of other's beliefs as long as they're respectful of mine...I don't consider myself to be very religious but I'm no atheist. I believe there's lessons to be learned and practiced from all religions. Love Pachimama!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


right now I'm open to showing people around Durango and the Southwest. Once I get a good place of my own, my door and couch will be open!


Used it in Peru and Ill continue to use it anywhere and everywhere I go!!!


Creativity, nature, all the little mysteries of life and this amazing planet we find ourselves on!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love music in almost all of its forms. I love seeing live music and groovin to it. I am an avid reader too and tend to read mainly non fiction...there's a lot of amazing true stories out there! And I definitely enjoy a good flic on occasion to although its been awhile since I've paid to see one in the theaters...they're sooo expensive anymore!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've explored New Zealand with my dad, completed numerous river trips including the 209 mile stretch of the Colorado through the Grand Canyon, and been on numerous archaeological adventures starting when I was 7.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well being a tour guide, I enjoy teaching people about the history of my home. We have some of the very earliest human history in North America around here and some of the best archaeology in the world! When it comes to learning, I have no boundaries...I want to cram as much in my head as I can and I'm always willing to share what I've learned with others!

Bolivia, Ireland, New Zealand, Peru
