About Me


From a small town called Ocala in Central Florida, USA. Now living in Kajaani, Finland.

I enjoy anything outdoors, especially in cold weather. I love meeting new people who are still ''People'', and live how life is intended, without sole reliance on technology and physical wealth.
I've been teaching myself Finnish and traveling back/forth to Finland quite a bit. Usually stuck in the south but have a huge love for the north.

30/8/16 - I've moved to a small town in North/Eastern Finland called Kajaani.

Once made a solo trip to Iceland without knowing anyone or anything there, just for the sake of creating a new memory.


Life is about the journey, Not the destination.

(This is something that I am trying to convince myself into believing.)

UPDATE: September, 2021
Currently in Utsjoki seeking adventure and a place to stay. Profile is a bit outdated, but i'll leave it as it is :)
Funny to see how time can change a person!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing



I coach basketball and love watching/playing also.
Recently developed a deep interest in music, regardless of my inability to read, write or play it successfully.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Something from all genres, Classics being the best. Most recently got into Nightwish and Tuomas Holopainen's work.

Music says most about a person.
So, Tuomas Holopainen is an individual who I truly admire. The music he produces and his way of thinking is just beyond impressive to me.

I also tried a song cover with a friend. I am on vocals (sorry if your ears bleed.. but i tried!) :D

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hmm. Would say I wrestle with alligators.. But it's more like touching the tail and running around in circles. Yeah, wrestling with gators would definitely sound cooler, but maybe not entirely true either :D
Umm.. I like to ice swim and spend time with reindeer when in Finland. It feels amazing.. Not sure if that counts as amazing, though.
