About Me

I am dusting off my travel boots and looking for adventure!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am a student of humanity and love meeting new friends and learning about their culture and history. By growing friendships throughout the world, I find that we are together in our pursuit of laughter, laughter and happiness. Connecting with others through couchsurfing serves to strengthen this bond and has resulting in the most honest friendships I have ever had.


Swimming and freediving in the ocean and playing under-water hockey when I can.
Discussing society, politics, and the history of how they became what they are.
Engineering- figuring out how things work and how to make them better.
Learning to cook (and eat) world foods.

Most of all, I love laughing with friends.

Music, Movies, and Books

You begin saving the world by saving one person at a time; all else is grandiose romanticism or politics.
-Charles Bukowski
