About Me


Trying to build a rock-solid daily creative habit. Also working on a collaborative secret weapon.


I’m a very creative person. I illustrate, design, sculpt, 3D print, animate. The list grows and grows. I love trying new things and figuring out their secrets.

I’m a horrible surfer but I still try. I’m an aggressive floater at this point.


Communication is likely the cause of and solution to your problems.

Expectations are resentments waiting to happen.

Don’t let your fears disguise themselves as patience.

Gordon Ramsay’s scramble eggs recipe is the best recipe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Since I've joined couchsurfing.org , I've hosted a few groups of people. Truly it was an amazing experience and has totally enriched my life. My favorite surfers were a group of protestors called "the missile dick chicks". I still have their T-shirt. They were great. Everyone I’ve met has been fantastic.


I surfed with my friend to arizona and had a fantastic experience. Our hosts even gave me their ukulele. I still haven't left the country with couchsurfing yet, but I’m going to change that soon.
