About Me


Fuck everything and become a pirate


I am happiest when out on the water (sailing, rowing, really anything). I love to go out with friends and am always down for spontaneous adventures, good food and music. Just about having fun and meeting people.

Currently trying to take advantage of living in the PNW as much as possible. I get out hiking, kayaking, or climbing most weekends. Really anything involving elevation or water.


Live life, have fun. Don't stress over the little things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've participated in a few events, hosted a few surfers, and surfed a few couches! Looking forward to continue to meeting new people.


Couchsurfing is the greatest. I can thank my hosts and those I have met through cs for some of my best and most memorable experiences in the last few years. I can't imagine traveling without it!


Mountaineering, rock climbing, bouldering, scuba diving, travel. I love staying active and being outside, reading a good book, or meeting new people.

Music, Movies, and Books

Oldies rock n roll, jazz, west coast rap, some indie bands. I don't get around to downloading new music too often but love going to shows and festivals!

Books! All time favorite is The Great Gatsby. I also really enjoy reading Schumacher, C.S. Lewis, George Orwell, Jack Kerouac, and many more I cant think of right now....I just read Born to Run, that was a cool book as well.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One time I got trapped in a bathroom by a bison at Yellowstone.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've got a skill or two on the slackline I could teach. Maybe show you how to walk on your hands or knit a hat!
