About Me


Try my hardest to work for my beliefs 1st money 2nd


I am a twenty somthing guy looking for new experiences, adventure, and people. I live a fairly simple life while trying to see the world and not sell my soul for money. I like to be outdoors and have no problem being on my own for long amounts of time but also like the idea of spending time with like minded people. I enjoy a fairly healthy lifestyle but sometimes I love to cut loose and drink a few beers.


My personal philosophy is mix of a many religions. I would most closely relate it to a mix of Taoism, Buddhism, and Native american religions. I don't belive in God in a Catholic sence but see what I love in nature and its balance.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to the site and have very little to give right now. I don't own a couch or a place of my own at the moment. I love the idea however and in the future when I have a place will participate more.


Mostly I have crashed on couches of cousins or previous aquaintance's couches. I have however stayed with friends of friends when I have been away from home traveling accross country.


I very much like almost all non-power sports. I like to be active and love almost all athletic activities. I like a good movie or a book and I love to see new places. My favorite places to visit are natural wonders but new towns can be fun with the right people.

Music, Movies, and Books

I can enjoy mostly all music besides gangster rap. I like many types of movies but I hate propaganda. I prefer to see movies that have a point or are just fun. When I read I like to learn something as I read, so I try to find non-fiction books with a good story.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have traveled to Australia, Central America, Some of Europe, Almost the entire US and much of the west side of Canada. I have lots of experiences that I found amazing and I think I have some good stories but I guess it depends on how easily impressed you are.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to become a better photographer, I am a amature for sure but I love to look at pictures and learn from them.
I also have extremely limited musical talents and would like to learn some day.
I have a lot to share but I don't think I am a guru in any field.
