About Me

Looking for a travel buddy | American | Straight Guy | Spanish |Basic Chinese | Want to learn Georgian, Turkish, and German.

I’m on a quest to find the right university and country for me and right now my answer is Austria.

In order to naturalize and become a dual citizen I’ll need to study or work in the EU for the next 5 years. Wish me luck. I’ll need to master Spanish or French too.

Besides that....I have a wide variety of interests.

I'm a runner, swimmer, rock climber, former soccer player of 12 years, entrepreneur, podcaster, and good networker. I eat gluten and dairy free thanks to past stomach problems (Not Just A Food Preference).

Personality wise I’m honest and direct. I truly love people. I tend to fall in love with foreign cultures, languages, and traditions.

I’m a citizen of the US, but am not a proud supporter of it. I respect though the powerful passport I have as a US citizen.

Fix the world’s immigration systems or hire remote talent anywhere.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love people. I’m looking to go out and meet some locals as I travel, maybe couchsurf, and network.


I love the people from the countries I’ve traveled too.

So I especially like Georgians, Armenians, Turkish People, Vietnamese, Japanese, Colombians, Peruvians, and Chinese.

I’m excited to travel to 30 more countries and learn about their cultures and economies.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like Indie music like anything on 94.7 in Portland OR. Currently really into Rosalía, Reggae tone, and Drake.

I’m reading a bit of Brene Brown, Tim Ferris, and business non-fiction.

I like Wes Andersons movies for the color, jokes, and story.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I learned to Salsa dance in Salento, Colombia while working a full-time job. Tim Ferris would have been proud.

Teach, Learn, Share

I’m thinking of becoming a coach. I’m quite good with interviews, delivering feedback, and teaching people to sell.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Feel free to interview me. I’m an open book. I’m working on being a better listener. I’m also very much into entrepreneurship. My expertise is in Sales and Marketing.
