About Me


To explore the world with you and brighten your day!


I love to read, constantly engage myself in new endeavors, and partake in new adventures, either by myself or with the company of others. I am equal parts extrovert and introvert. I have an insatiable desire to see the world and most everyone thinks I am polite and fun to be around!


I find it difficult to answer a question like this without sounding too cheesy. That said, I like to put myself on a continual path of holistic self-improvement.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


When I'm not traveling I use my house as a turnstile for all incoming travelers. Now that I'm on the road, I seek only to bring smiles to people's faces :)


I couchsurfed in Mexico City (check my references) and was active in the Columbus couch surfing community before going abroad.


Reading, economics, running, outdoor activities, being a polymath, starting my own business, seeing how the world works.

Music, Movies & Books

Just about anything I can get my hands on.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I once ran about 100 miles, I'm proud of that.

I'm hoping in two years I'll be able to say I successfully started my own company.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have comparative advantages in the fields of banking, running, personal finance, and the art of relaxation :)

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Haiti, Mexico, Norway, Virgin Islands, U.S.

Countries I've Lived In

United States
