About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get out & look around

ABOUT ME

I'm always looking to get out of the ordinary and find somewhere new to explore. I'm a photographer who loves to travel, hike, and get lost in the backcountry. With any luck, I'll be able to get around the globe as many times as possible.

PHILOSOPHY

I like to see smiling people who are working hard to enjoy life as best they can. Fun people who have their heads in the right place turn me on & get me going.

I just try to be open to whatever comes my way!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm happy to show people around the whole area around New York... not just the city, but also the Hudson Valley to the north which is a pretty awesome place to go hiking/camping/biking.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

CS was invaluable when I was traveling through Guatemala, and on several short trips

As a host, I've learned that incorporating a new friend into your routine for a bit really helps make life a bit more interesting.

Interests

Photography, music, art, journalism, the GREAT outdoors, hiking, mountain biking, camping, trail running, life.

Music, Movies & Books

Ah, I love music! Old stuff, new stuff, rock, rap, reggae, old dubs, & new riffs.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Spending a week being deathly ill on the Green River in Utah's wilderness was an experience I will never forget.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach skills related to photography, digital still picture editing, bike mechanics & mountain biking, camping, and the great outdoors. I'd like to learn how to squeeze a little more epic adventure in the time I have every day. I want to learn how to wake earlier, travel farther, and run faster.

Countries I've Visited

Antigua and Barbuda, Canada, Germany, Mexico, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I've Lived In
