About Me


To traverse the SouthWestern region of the United States in hopes of finding some type of Shaman and reaching enlightenment. To reunite myself with the planet and all of its creatures. To re-enter into the cycle of energy of life.


I am currently a part of an artist collective here in Philadelphia( if you're interested. We have been throwing showcases in which multiple disciplines of artistry are put on display. It has been going quite well and I hope it continues as I leave. I have lived in Philly my whole life and have decided to uproot myself and travel. I'm flying straight to Cali with hopes of finding people and places of interest. I am someone who rarely has money, just putting that out there, but I am always willing to use my body in place of that.


Live and let live. I know it sounds cliche but as I get older this phrase becomes more and more real to me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


None as of yet. Will be embarking on my first CS adventure in just a few weeks.


Art, music, the advancement of the human species out of our self-fulfilling prophecy of (self)-destructive behavior. I also love food and bicycles, and the internet.
