About Me

CURRENT MISSION

First Thailand, then the world!

ABOUT ME

I'm a traveler before anything else. I've had a lot of different jobs in different places. I record a lot of video. I take a lot of photos. I have an internal checklist of dreams, both big and small. Anything from riding a wild horse to singing 'Subterranean Homesick Blues' on the roof of a bus. As I travel I check more things off and continue to add more to the list. I've been writing a story for a long time now. It keeps getting better as I discover the world. That's my life.

PHILOSOPHY

If I'm not working for money to get from A to B, than I'm working for me. When I'm working for both, I'm living the dream.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

This global community has connected me to people who don't even speak English, yet I know and love like family. It has introduced me to great friends who inspire me to keep moving and keep in touch. It really has revolutionized how we, as travelers can share our life stories and totally elevate our experiences on the road.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Majority of hosting experience has taken place in Chumphon, Thailand and Alice Springs,NT, Australia.

I've surfed in Thailand, India, Nepal, Bali, and Montreal, Canada.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've lived and am still living a life built on imagination and inspiration, shaped by the daydreams of my childhood. I've seen other people who radiate the same way of living and know how to share it. When I connect with these kinds of people, it doesn't matter where we are in the world. It's a perfect scene.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've taught English as a second language for over 2 years in Thailand and in the Northern Territory of Australia. I'll never stop learning, asking questions and digging deeper. Life is meant to be shared. Especially the best parts.
