About Me


working hard, playing hard, and travelling.


I Genuinely enjoy the process of learning new things. I like setting goals. I can be a bit "type A" but also know how to relax and "let go" when it is the right time to do so. Really looking to travel more, and learn from people and in-the-moment experiences. Book-learning can't compare to that!

Also if you wish to stay with me, please know that I identify as gay and live with my partner, neither of which should affect your stay in any way, but I like to put it out there so people know. I'm big on honesty.


I'm banking on humanity to make heaven a place on Earth. I have no doubts! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would be willing to host provided my partner is OK with the situation. I am pretty laid back and I am willing to work out specifics over email. I do think that the more communication I have with a potential surfer, the better there stay will be.


I have couch surfed four times within the United States and had fantastic experiences each time with genuinely kind and interesting people! It only made me want to do it more! I have yet to host anyone, but that will happen soon, I hope!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Dove off a 40-foot high bridge in Ecuadoor while attached to a pendulum like rope (it's called Puenting). Climbed some smaller mountains. Attended a fantastic community run festival of thanks in Thailand, where my wrists were wrapped with strings of gratitude.
