About Me


Fight Insomnia.


I’ve lived in the same town most of my life, so I guess that’s where my longing to travel comes from. I’ve been on many road trips in the US, as well as some more extensive trips abroad. I think my favorite place in the US (from what I’ve seen so far) is the southwest. I love the geology that’s in that area. Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon… It’s all so interesting. Also, Indian fry bread is delicious.

Like many people, I’m interested in a lot of different things, and have worked in many different fields. A few things I’m interested in include photography, aviation, and music. I’ve sold knives, worked at Victoria’s Secret, and been a ranger for the National Park Service to name a few jobs. I have two jobs at the moment, an EMT for a local ambulance, and a flight instructor at the airport.


Live Alive.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host surfers as often as I can. I've been a part of this community for a long time, but haven't been as active as I'd like. If only I had the income to travel more...


The couchsurfing experiences I’ve had have all been positive. I’ve hosted a few times, and been hosted once.


Too many to list. I fly airplanes, scuba dive, and am a professional photographer to name a few.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Not a big fan of horror.

Music: Most of my iTunes library is made up of non-Top 40 music. Kings of Connivence, The Presets, and LCD Soundsystem are among my most played.

Books: As sad as this is to admit, I don't read much. I'm working on it, though...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to the Love Parade in Berlin twice. 1999 and 2000.
