About Me


To understand the people and the world around us


My wife Jillian and I are getting our master degree. We traveled/couchsurfed/hitchhiked around the UK. We are easygoing and ecofriendly. We would enjoy getting to meet people!


Be kind to others and they will be kind to you. Be the change you wish to see in the world! We love the couchsurfing philosophy, and want to meet people of all countries, religions, backgrounds, lifestyles.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We have had a great experience surfing, and welcome people to our home. We will be couchsurfing over spring break for the NCECA conference (hopefully!)


We have had incredible experiences with people from all over the world. Everyone we've met has been a great learning opportunity. We are also on, and have stayed with folks around the UK, the states, and Canada who have been nice enough to share their lives.


Studying in sculpture and ceramics and my wife is studying English literature and painting. We love the outdoors, indie music and records, and devote our spare time to environmental and humanitarian causes.
