About Me

A friend once described me as 'aggressively chill' and its probably the best compliment I've ever gotten. I'm a very easy-going guy that's just trying to soak up as much as possible from this wild ride of life and help everyone else do the same.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

There is something special about meeting a complete stranger, sharing experiences with them, learning from them, and quickly becoming friends. Through Couchsurfing, I've had incredible experiences and met amazing people and I want to continue that!

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm almost always listening to music so there would be too many favorites to list, but ODESZA has a special place in my heart - I have a tattoo of their logo and have seen them live 7 times in 6 different states

For books, I'll enjoy most everything fantasy related, but my favorite series is easily The First Law trilogy by Joe Abercrombie. Hoping to write my own fantasy novel someday!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Took my first solo backpacking trip when I was 20, working my way from Germany to Ireland. Best decision I ever made.

Teach, Learn, Share

I work as a software engineer for a living, so if you have interest in that I'm sure I could teach you a thing or two.

I enjoy learning about anything and everything I can, so I will be an eager listener to whatever you are passionate about.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Curiosity, an eagerness to learn and listen, an open mind, and a smile

If you're a gambler, you can let me try to cook for you
