About Me


New experiences with old lessons.


Just a laidback American enjoying traveling, learning, and seeing everything I can, one peso, euro, kroner, yuan at a time...


I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing as often as possible, and hosting when I get the chance to!


Have surfed a lot over the last couple years, and really get into it. Love the experience and meeting new people. Just started surfing again after an unfortunate (but necessary) break to focus on my career (laaaaaaaame)


Seeing everything before its too late...and if a drink and maybe some local music is involved- even better!

But seriously.. travel, architecture, music and history really are my thing. and FOOD. The spicier the better. Soaking up the local energy, whether that be a football game, a good meal, or a blurry night i can't really remember is what I'll probably take away with me.

Music, Movies, and Books

Way too many to list. Just like Michael Bolton, I am a major cinephile,

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Petting a Cheetah is still number 1 for me.

Teach, Learn, Share

You have to be open to experiencing the new places you find yourself in. For me, as a New Yorker, that meant letting go of any "I got this" attitude. You're in f*cking Sarajevo. You don't got this. But your host just might. Make sure they know you know that.
