About Me


photograph everyday life.


Love to see new places, to document and be a part of how humans interact with the earth. I love to explore the ways humans are different yet all connected, and traveling and meeting new people is the best way to do it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


New to couchsurfing but love the idea!


Exploring the rough parts of the world, finding how humans make their mark on the earth. Photography, drawing, guitar making, rock climbing, furniture making, bicycling long distances, connecting with folks.
