About Me


Not to own a key ring.


I've lived in Vail for about 2 years now, which is the longest I've stayed in one spot for some time. I did a couple long distance cycling tours over the last few years, searching for a perfect spot to call home. I haven't found it yet, so this fall (2014) I plan to set out again and live off the land (or the sea) for as long as possible.

All I know is that I want to continue to explore and meet amazing people, be happy and healthy, live outside, and find the man of my dreams haha. And have FUN.

I'd be happy to host up to three people at a time. Just give me a couple days heads up and we'll make it happen!! Thanks for your consideration!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed through CS in Canada, New England, and in the midwest. Unofficially I've surfed couches and yards all across the states. I'd love to host now that I'm settled for the time being, so come on over!


I am continually inspired by each CSer I meet. Thanks guys, for being so great.


living outside, tending fire, cycling, hiking, rafting, fly fishing, thunderstorms, the elements, the oceans, sailing, art, drawing, creating, writing, vegan shit, good beer, observing, language, music, being independent, laughter, happiness! A nice, full beard on a man.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I witnessed 37 shooting stars in one EPIC night while sailing on the Atlantic Ocean. Magic does exist.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love learning! I want to take in as much as possible, always. I'd really appreciate learning how to sail, about sustainable farming, natural building, rock climbing, anything regarding outdoor survival, how to surf, and the harp.

Morse Code ..._._

I could teach you how to professionally decorate a cake! It's always someone's birthday!
