About Me


To dispel myths and fearmongering while trying to enjoy living.


Two of us make up the most interesting individual in the world. Katie and I are engaged in graduate studies in anthropology/philosophy/sociology, homesteading, and general mischief . All in all we are friendly people who like to have fun and learn new things.


While there is much more to what we think, the golden rule is one piece that holds true everywhere.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We would love to be able to surf more but we are mostly confined financially to the great outdoors of Chautauqua County. We'd love to host travelers and learn more about what others have to say.


People have stayed with us, we haven't stayed with people.


Reading, Anything outdoors, Movies and games, enjoying the company of friends.

Tool and Rage, Ani and Andrew Jackson Jihad, Star Fucking Hipsters and NOFX, Immortal Technique and Dead Prez, and the list goes on.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

We live very close to Niagara Falls and visit often, we are surrounded by many wonderful lakes including Lake Erie and Chautauqua Lake and so many opportunities to enjoy so many outdoor environments that it is almost a sin. We have had the chance to visit the great country of Peru and even climb the mountains that make up the ancient city of Machu Picchu.
The fact that we are able to be together is one of the most amazing things that we have done.

Teach, Learn, Share

We both want to learn more about everything. Being able to live the American self sufficient dream as completely as possible is our goal and we are well on our way.
