About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To experience the cultures of the world without having to forfeit a monthly paycheck.

ABOUT ME

I've been to more than 1/3 of the world's nations. I have a passion for travelling, meeting new people, seeing new places, and experiencing new cultures.

I've had a full life so far. I've played in a band signed to a label, surfed since I was little, snowboarded great mountains, scuba dived amazing reefs, mountain biked awesome treks, parachuted, hang glided, and bungeed, but now mostly just enjoy exploring God's creation.

I have a job that allows me to work from the internet. This really helps me keep traveling...

PHILOSOPHY

Not a preacher, but definitely believe in Jesus.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been to the last five Summer Olympics, and God willing, I'd like to go to every future one until I die. All of humanity comes together in one place to celebrate passion, sport, and the human spirit. The atmosphere at the games is so great, I highly recommend it, even if you don't go to any events. It's so refreshing to see people from every country hanging out together and having fun.
