About Me

CURRENT MISSION

two and half month round trip of these great United States

ABOUT ME

I find myself being a conversationalist at times. I enjoy musing new friends thoughts on life and I place a premium on finding humor as often as possible. I'm stoked to be a part of the CS community. I have friends young and old, docile and rambunctious, graceful and piggish... variety is the spice of life.

"It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude." - Emerson

PHILOSOPHY

Live life humbly and treat people with kindness and compassion... and laugh any chance you get.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

surfing for now. I ditched my job after I graduated Dec 13' and will be traveling, backpacking, skiing and attempting to "crush" it as much as I can.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I will be surfing for the next couple of months and I'm looking for people to hang out with and places to stay in Utah, Colorado, and the North Pacific between backpacking and skiing jaunts. I hope you'll be a part of it!

I have outfitted my Horse (to be named later) with sleeping quarters but Friends, a roof, good Food, and experience are going to be awesome stays on the trip.

Interests

In no particular order: cooking, playing guitar, writing, going to concerts, skiing, camping, hiking, frisbee golf, interesting people and leude humor

Music, Movies & Books

some recent tunes: Jack White, Radiohead, Alt-J, Big Gigantic, Jose Gonzalez, Andy McKee, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Tears for Fears, Foo Fighters, Van Morrison, Metric

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I either haven't seen enough or too many to tell. I'll go with the later and a bad memory. If I'm lucky I'll continue to see amazing things every day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am an expert at nothing and a bullshitter at everything. I know a little science as chemistry is what I studied in college but I'm definitely no Walt. I can teach a little about a lot. Other than that, I'm all ears.

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, Ireland

Countries I've Lived In

United States
