About Me

My mission is endless.
I am searching (and finding) all the beauty in life. It is near and it is far. It is where you never thought to look before.


I feel like an ocean wave, building and building itself up just waiting for that moment it releases its energy.
I am a peaceful being always trying to look on the bright side of life. I have always able to make myself comfortable in the midst of the unknown.
What I mean by this is that I am not afraid to confront a situation with an open mind, which is something I believe many of us struggle with, and out of this lack of comfort comes the tensions that precede violence or other negative situations.
I might be getting a bit off topic, but I just want you to know that if you and I ever meet in person, I will genuinely try to discover who you are and find a way to connect with you, because I find that just so important.

Summary: I am always interested in a good conversation about mostly anything.
I am dying to learn.
Teach me.


Think happy thoughts.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I take part in the way that most others do, and am most grateful for the opportunities provided.


My experience is slowly growing and I hope it continues to flourish. I'm surfing and meeting up for the most part, and once I have a steady place of my own I wish to host as much as possible.


Music is the central aspect of my life. However, I'm interested in many things.
I appreciate: photography, films, all music, hiking/backpacking, nature, hot tubs, food (major sweet tooth).

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: Jitterbug Perfume, The Music Lesson, Hitchhiker's Guide, The Road Less Traveled, Blue like Jazz, TLOTR

Movies: The Fountain, Pans Labyrinth, Brick, Memento, Blade Runner, Tree of Life

Music: Sigur Ros, Thrice, Radiohead, The Punch Brothers, Jack Garratt, Richard Strauss, Frederic Chopin, The Wood Brothers, Queen, Pat Metheny, Animals as Leaders, Circa Survive, Derek Trucks, Bobby McFerrin, Stevie Ray Vaughan...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once tried the ten hottest peppers in the world. Ow.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've been lucky enough to have been apart of many different musical experiences. I have had my own band, performed solo, subbed for other national touring bands, and played on cruise ships. I can share my passion for many types of music with you, and hopefully learn something in return.
As most of us are, I'm a student of life, and I wish I was more well versed in other areas of life, but I'm growing. I'm good at improvising (in any sense), whether it's coming up with a creative meal, or finding something to do, I love thinking outside the box!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Love! A listening ear. Music. Cleaning. Cooking. Laughter. Beer. A helping hand.
