About Me


Eat Pizza Around the World


Currently living in Kenya/Uganda and working for a non-profit here. I am an outdoor and music enthusiast. My greatest desire is to experience as much of the cultures, people, and geographies of this vast world, which has brought me all over Africa, South America, Central America, Mexico, and SE Asia. I am very outgoing and love a good laugh. I can drink with the best, but also love to chill and chat over some coffee or tea. Always looking to meet interesting people and have stimulating conversation.


Lets go everywhere, man
Theres lots of fun out there, man
We gotta have our share, man
Get out of your chair, man
Lets go everywhere. ~ MMW

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I use CS to connect with people I meet abroad, meet new people, and gather ideas for places I am going to go. I am traveling to Vancouver in July 2014 and hope to get involved again then.


I have crashed on numerous couches all across the US due to my travels to see music in different cities and visits to different universities to see sports or party. I have become good friends with most of these people and love the fact that I have places to stay all over the midwest and west coast of the US. I had great couchsurfing experiences in Mexico from locals showing me around their hometowns.


Outdoors, music, travel, food, drink. Snowboarding, hiking, biking, rock climbing, mountaineering, and scuba diving. Sports, mainly football and NCAA basketball. Interesting conversation. Trying new things. Meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a diverse range of taste in music which is mainly compromised of jazz, funk, blues, jam, electro, and world music (usually with Latin or Middle Eastern influences). I lean towards books that are non-fictional, inspiring, and cultural, such as Shantaram. One of my favorite fiction books is Brave New World. My favorite movie of all time is City of God, which you should go watch immediately if you haven't yet.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed Mt. Kinabalu in Borneo. A very rewarding experience that was well worth the tough two day climb to the top.

Teach, Learn, Share

'Is' as no-thing, is that whereby all things are. And the condition of the possibility of anything being at all, is that it is in relation to that which is not~ R.D. Laing
