About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Currently exploring both Europe and the human body AKA I am currently studying abroad while studying medicine, awesome choice!!!

ABOUT ME

Let's see here... I'm about to finish a semester abroad in Vienna, Austria. Quite simply, it has been EPIC... Too many good memories to write down, no time for that, only time to make new ones (possibly with you?).

I'm about to head back to the States, headed to San Antonio, Texas, to start up medical school, wish me luck!

PHILOSOPHY

Live your life! Many of my friends say I'm a "work hard, party hard" kind of guy, I think that has some truth to it... but quite frankly I think there's a place for everything and if you're going to do something, you might as well do it to the fullest.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

A friend from the study abroad program mentioned his great experiences couch surfing, so I thought I'd give it a shot! Better chance to meet great people than at pure luck via a hostel booking, right?

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Totally new to me! Bring it on!

Interests

Meeting new people, observing different world views, immersing myself in new cultures... basically I am trying to become a much more global person! We are all in this together after all.

Music, Movies & Books

Most anything... let's talk about it.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I skied the Austrian Alps exactly one year after receiving a L5-S1 spinal fusion as a result of an injury sustained while playing football for TCU. Go Frogs!

Teach, Learn, Share

I am full of useful knowledge... like medicine- for instance- a p53 gene mutation is responsible for approximately half of all the fatal cancers.

I am also full of useless knowledge... like random facts- for instance- there are more plastic flamingos in the state of Florida than real ones.

What do you like sharing?
