About Me


My current mission objective? To help people not get taken to the cleaners by hotels? I'm not really sure. Basically, I just moved to Knoxville and know zero people other than my dog so it would be nice talking to a human instead of him every now and then


I just moved to Knoxville, TN from Houston, TX, having worked there for 6ish years. Born in Tuscaloosa, AL and grew up in Hattiesburg, MS with my dad & step mother (although she is really my mamma.) Youngest of 6, I have 13 nieces and nephews and I am the proud parent of a 100 pound Swinford named Kimbo (dog.) He doesn't have a mother because in America, dads can have dogs.

I was in Marine Corps reserves and received a Bach. in Finance from Ole Miss and then a second Bach. in Accounting as well as a M.S. in Accounting from Alabama. Hotty Toddy. Roll Tide.

I just sneezed as I was typing this and choked on my gum. I almost just died writing my "All about you" on Rock bottom.

Continuing, I am into hiking and working out and movies.... big movie whore. Love em. Big into my family and my dog. Have a group of friends and we seemingly get more dispersed everyday. I just moved to Knoxville to run an Oil & Gas company as Director of Finance so I spend most time working, thus, haven't had time to make any friends.

I'm normal, have a clean wrap sheet, level-headed, enjoy concerts and getting drunk watching football. My idea of a good time is wearing cutoff NASCAR tshirts and jeans and going to rage at Talladega, even though i know absolutely zero about NASCAR and care even less about NASCAR.


"I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.
A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself."

Basically, work hard and quit bitching.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I don't get this? You can rent out my sofa/sofa-bed or blow up mattress.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

i have always been friends with older people for some reason. i love hanging out with the old weird guy that sits at the bar by himself.
