About Me


Just finished riding my bicycle from Washington State to Florida. Now, headed to the Caribbean for a long walk.


I LOVE meeting strangers on the bus and subway. I live a life of abundance and empathy, and I truly believe all human beings are so, so, so, so good. I have had so many people do me amazing kindnesses over the course of my life - I'm just trying to keep up!

"Butters, you gotta learn to chill. Life goes by pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while - and do whatever you want all the time - you can miss it."

-Eric Cartman

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At first I hosted some. Then I surfed some. Now I'll be hosting some more. I've had awesome experiences doing both. The experience should be a net positive for both sides---everyone should be smiling when the surfer gets on his or her merry way.
