About Me


Live in a Yurt


I love music, photography and traveling, they keep me going. Grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, but have had the pleasure to see 50 states of the United States, and a few other countries. I want to see as much as possible, meet as many people as possible, and laugh while doing it all.


You need to do what makes you happy.
If you're in a place you don't like, leave.
If you're at a job you don't like, quit.
If you spend time with people that upset you, stop.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


All of the people I know on here, I met other ways than couch surfing (although I'm sure I have slept on their couch..)
But there are lots of people I don't know on here! I plan on meeting as many as I can during my travels.


Photography-- taking photos myself, hanging out in a darkroom and making some prints, seeing others work from past and present.

Crafts-- making some useful stuff for cheaper, being hands on, and using the right side of brain.

Music-- going to shows, attempting to learn banjo, checking out new bands, and most of all, on the rare occasion I'm back in Philadelphia, sit on my friends couch and hear my friends jam together for hours.

Food-- Eating it, cooking it, learning about different types, and trying all kinds.

Moving-- I like to be in motion. I've driven across the United States three times, have taken a train across twice, busses here and there, and have flown a bit. I love seeing stuff pass me through a window.
