About Me


To ninja around the world


I am a student in Minneapolis but am currently in Amman, Jordan studying the environment and its accompanying politics, specifically water. I find the environment to be one of the most interesting, enveloping, multipurpose topics ever. That said I love to explore, have a drink at the bar, hang out in a cafe, and challenge myself in as many ways possible.

Basically I like to have fun and am open to many ways of having it.


I live my life to learn and develop. I am a large world guy with a love for small community. I grew up in Midwest America and love seeing the world and its many viewpoints. The environment interests me a lot as well. Eco-philosophical-community driven.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm new to this so for now mostly I'm just looking to find interesting people to meet, get suggestions from, or go on adventures with. I will be traveling down the Mediterranean coast in early November so will be looking to couch surf for that.


Met some people for coffee and such, and had a great time!


How people interact, view, relate to, and use the environment. People. Learning. Exploring. Seeing. Tasting. Living. Challenging myself. Partying.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Sci fi, comedy, action, movies that make you think, documentaries.
Music: Everything though I have my preferences depending on what I want from the music.
Books: Very open in this as well. "Deep Economy", "Beyond Good and Evil", "Wicked" are three good ones.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

See the sunrise on a cliff in Wadi Rum.

Teach, Learn, Share

Becoming more and more environmentally intelligent, but honestly the more I learn the more I realize I know nothing. That said I am pretty good with taking random ingredients and making a meal. Also random but give me duct tape and I can build you anything.
