About Me


Get through school with enough good experiences to make me smile.


I'm a software engineering student in Klamath Falls and a weekend warrior in the Oregon Air National Guard, Security Forces. I'm pretty laid back, like to drink in moderation, pluck my guitar whenever possible, discuss whatever sort of educational or artistic or musical things happen to catch my interest. I like being outside a lot, running, bicycling, snowboarding. Almost always open to new people, activities, places and foods.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been meaning to try it out for a long time but just started because I need a place to stay on short notice. Necessity is a good reason to try new things.


I'm big into programming, I'm studying it in school. I like most music except metal (sorry, metal fans, it just doesn't really resonate with me), graffiti, snowboarding, and I'm just getting into crossfit and lifting. As long as I got good company, a tasty drink or some good music I'm pretty hard not to please.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Who comes up with these questions?

Strapped up in a C130 landing in Afghanistan during my first (and only, so far) deployment was a pretty weird "Oh shit" moment. It felt really surreal.

Seeing Flogging Molly with my sister in high school. Almost shat myself during the intro to Drunken Lullabies.

Skydiving. Nuff said.
