About Me


I want to experience as many people, places, things and ideas as I can. To meet crazy, fun, interesting, open minded, different people, and make awesome connections.


I want to experience this world and have revelations and realizations about how everything works and interacts. I love finding out about what people want, what makes them tic and what makes them happy. I'm open to many things so I can see what may happen outside of my ways and ideas.


I have a few things I try to live by. Ask me when we meet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I started off very young. I found I could wake up more easily by sleeping on a couch or the floor than by sleeping on a bed so I've been doing it since I was ten-ish er whenever it became my responsibility to get myself up and out for school. I've had generous friends that let me sleep on their couches since I've had a vehicle. Klint and Wes know of my skills best. Ive got the fundamentals of it down, now I need to start branching out to awesome new friends in the CS family.


Hmmm alphabetical or chronological? Millions of thing and I try to find new ones daily. Now if only I could stick with one and become great at it, thats the key.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've climbed the Acropolis. I got lost in the maze city of Mykonos. Made hairpin turns in a bus on the side of the cliffs of Santorini. Knifed a wild boar in the jungle of Molokai. Jumped from 13,000 feet with a partner and a chute, jumped from 100 feet into water. Snorkeled with tropical reef fish. Snowshoed and skied the Wasatch range. Took a 4,400 mile road trip, alone. Slept on the sidewalk, and later, stairs. Caught a snapping turtle, ate it, very chewy. Stormed a mountain trail with a match a hatchet and a sleeping bag. Been to the top of the WTC before it was destroyed. Been to the top of the Statue of Liberty before it was destroyed...in movies. Drove though the cornfields of Iowa, the plains of Texas, the hills of Tennessee...pretty much that whole 'proud too be an american' song. Was goofy at the Goonies house. Hugged a Redwood tree in Cali. Owned the streets of Chicago on a scooter. Camped in the desert under the stars. Pissed myself laughing, many times. I have met amazing people that I adore. I love having experiences like these.
