About Me


Finding a new job!


Why is there a big red cross on my picture? I have chosen to reject the verification process. I believe verification is a misuse of cash and creates a false sense of security. I prefer to accept people for who they are, not by the size of there wallets, not by the little flag, not by the rules that CS "supports". Why? I invite you to explore the support The OpenCouchSurfing Campaign for more information. I also invite you to explore where verification money goes and how it is spent. So-called "verification" donations totaled almost $780'000 in 2008.

I am a 23 year old Computer geek. I once embraced the love for body modification but now just do it for personal strength. I am an outgoing individual who loves to spend time with people from all cultures. I make no judgment on race, religion, sex, or sexual preference we are all human and should respect each other. I currently live outside the city in the northwest suburbs. I will not stand for liars or thieves. I love football and American football as well as hockey. I have 35 hours of tattoo work so far and do not want to stop anytime soon.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been on here long enough to meet some really great people. I offer a bedroom and a few couches to people who want to take the train out for some suburban fun. I love to cook Vegetarian as well as Vegan so if you want to chip in for it I will cook something up. Also I love to come to the city and participate in events that are held.


I love computers they are my lifeline to everything but when I feel that I need to disconnect from the digital world I love suspending (hanging oneself from hooks) I find it relaxing and it helps clear my mind. I do not push any of that on anyone it is a lifestyle choice and I cannot make the up for anyone. I also love to DJ and cook. If you want juggling lessons just ask!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One amazing thing I have done is survived a few pretty bad accidents such as riding my bike in Chicago and getting hit by a car and almost dying. Bad times for me but I will progress. I just got done traveling due to getting swine flu while in Manchester, It was upsetting that it ended my travels but I needed to come home to fully recover. But not all is bad due to that cause I am now Dj'ing several events, parties, and clubs.

Teach, Learn, Share

Lets see what I can teach surfers who stay with me. As a computer geek I am willing to offer my knowledge and guidance in almost any part of the digital experience. An avid gamer and console junkie :) Anyone for first person shooters is welcome. I can also teach beginner sign language. I'd love to learn anything I can really. And for sharing well stories can last a life time :)
