About Me


Prepping for a good bit of traveling soon.


Easy-going, open minded, friendly, bluntly humorous (I've been told)


"When your deepest thoughts are broken, keep on dreaming! 'Cause when you stop dreaming it's time to die! And as we all play parts of tomorrow, some ways we work and other ways we play; but I'm going to write my words on the face of today! And they'll paint it!" - Shannon Hoon from Blind Melon

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfed and hosted a few times. Always loved it!


I've enjoyed every person's company that I've met on couchsurfing, and I look forward to meeting a lot more!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A few times in life, awe towards life leaves you inspired. Although I try to get that feeling regularly, it does not happen enough. Generally it involves a gathering of people and the great outdoors.

Some of my favorites:
-Sunset in Makena, Maui during a drum circle fire dance.
-Oil down (local food) in Grenada after a long group hike.
-Coffee sunrise on the back porch of a rustic cabin on White Rock Mountain in Arkansas
