About Me


Travel and Learn


I'm Devan.
I travel the world with an open mind and open heart. I live for meeting positive people, and enjoying new life experiences.


Be the best you can be, and strive to impact everyone you come across in a positive manner. A smile goes a long way.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy helping couch surfing expand and grow, I've gotten a few friends to sign up and join, and they ended up being far more active than I have been. Couch surfing has provided me with invaluable life experiences.


I've been able to meet and experience far more than I ever would have without couch surfing. I've met so many amazing people that are now my friends, and will be in my life for years to come.


Writing music, networking, survivalist, travel.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done


Teach, Learn, Share

I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

‎"...If you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.” - Bruce Lee

A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.
- Mahatma Gandhi

What great thing would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
- Robert Schuller

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain

“There are two ways of meeting difficulties: you alter the difficulties, or you alter yourself to meet them.” ~ Phyllis Battome
