About Me


To spend a year traveling around the world with my wife.


I am 32 years old, from a small town in upstate New York and have lived in New Orleans for the last 14 years. I am excited to be spending the next year traveling around the world with my wife.


Enjoy life. It is always perfect. Even when it doesn't seem like it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting CS groups, traveling, hosting when I get home.


I grew up in a small town where everybody knows each other. I have been wanting to expand that experience to feel that anywhere in the world. I have hosted many people in New Orleans and stayed on numerous couches along my travels.


Music - reggae, blues, soul. I have loved Bob Marley since about 7th grade.
Been reading some John Steinbeck lately.
Outdoors - hiking, swimming, rock climbing.
I love summer time. I am planning to spend the next year following summer around the globe.

Music, Movies, and Books

Been listenin to a bunch of New Orleans music lately - Eric Lindell, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, Allen Touissant - and Hill Country Blues - North Mississippi All Stars, Cedric Burnside. Reggae, of course. I watch whatever movies my wife wants. I enjoy most of them when I don't gall asleep.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rebuilt my life and home in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina flooded it. Waterfalls all over the world.
