About Me


socks + linoleum floors!


Music Fiend! hip hop, rock, electronic, classic rock, flamenco, booty shaken, and on and on. ill admit it, i pretty much become a moth when i hear music. Fan of basketball, track and field and soccer when the mood is right.

Fairly easy goin. in a nutshell, i plan not to have plans.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


love to share the music scene with a anybody. if you happen to be in my area, feel free to give a shout and ill show ya around.


throw that sail into the wind and keep a lookout for birds that might crap on you! I cherish casual conversations, despite what today's technology says otherwise.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

most amazing thing ive seen so far are my own dreams that have become reality... given it took 6 years of dreaming, but great things can happen (might wanna inquiry about that story). 2011 I represented the USA as an international art performer. I ran on top of a flipped tank and people took pictures of me. Sweet feeling.

Teach, Learn, Share

i like to share music. at times, ive been caught giving guitar and piano lessons (who knows, you might learn something from me!)
