About Me


Chicago, Chambana, Korea, Hanoi, and now Cebu. I've been off Couchsurfing for over 4 years and now I'm back.

Looking to meet some strange new people in a strange new land.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm here trying to meet people from around the world and hopefully get some more local insight into countries. I can't host but I'm always happy to meet people.

I'll also try to make sure visitors have a good time. I use the word 'try' loosely.


I eat and drink my way around most places. Most of my travel advice is food related with tangental advice on places to go.

I wish I had more time to play video games. Gonna make it a point to play more this year.

Boat trips seem to be this year's theme.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Had to poop in a rice field on my way to Hanoi. Ended up losing two socks and a pair of boxers.

I've traveled quite a bit, but I can't think of anything that's completely awe inspiring. I've and great experiences hiking throughout Korea, scuba diving in Thailand, drinking through 'Nam, seeing ancient things in Europe...I erno. I'm constantly in awe of the world. That's why I keep doing this.
