About Me


I like to consider myself an outgoing person. One thing I'm passionate about it the ability to help people, I'm a firefighter/EMT back home and it keeps me very busy when I'm working. On the other hand it gives me ample time off for my other passion.... TRAVEL! I mostly travel by myself and love the freedom it gives me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on Couchsurfing so I can adapt into the culture as much as possible. I don't think you can truly understand a place until you understand its people.


I love going to baseball games and watching any sports. I like to try new local beers wherever I go. I have a fascination with history and things i've never experienced.
