About Me


Right now, I'm trying to explore other countries cuisines to expand on my cooking career!


Born in the woods and raised within the serenity of Northern New Hampshire and the simple life. Though I now reside in New York City and Los Angeles, the mountains will always be my true home, but the city life always beckons me. My passion of traveling began when I flew across the country at the age of 15 to Seattle; ever since then, I have not been able to stay in one place for very long! Now I work as a merchant mariner and travel in my spare time!


It was better to had ended than to have never begun.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Though it's hard for me, because I move around so much; I am more than willing to show people around where ever my home happens to be. But, I've traveled extensively through The United States and South America so I have lots of advice.


None so far, but hoping to fill this space with something amazing!


Snowboarding, cooking, playing music, backpacking, photography, reading, poetry, mountain biking, traveling, computers, art, live music, surfing, tea, writing, languages, other cultures, zoos, train travel, and the similarities between pop-tarts and photosynthesis.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Just ask me! I listen to everything; Jazz, Rock, Tango, Blues, Punk, even Opera!

Movies: Again, just ask me; I have a wide spectrum of favorite movies. Depends on my mood.

Books: Douglas Adams is a personal favorite of mine, but I am a fan of old school authors like Jules Verne, Daniel Defoe, H. G. Wells, and Tolkien.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

While hiking through the jungle to Machu Picchu with two of my friends, we ran into a man who had a strikingly familiar appearance to Juan Valdez! He invited us over for coffee, which we have not had for months considering Nescafe is the "new" coffee. Through the jungle until reaching his home where he showed us his garden and how to roast coffee. He had some berries that had been drying for two days that he then threw into a pot over the fire. The sound of the berries popping reminded me of making popcorn as a kid, and the smell; sublime! Our roasted coffee was then brewed into the freshest, best cup of coffee I have ever had! After talking about life, asking directions, and buying a kilo of coffee for ourselves, we headed back into the jungle to make it to Machu Picchu by Christmas!
