About Me


Travelling the Pacific Northwest from San Diego back up to Canada.


Up-for-almost-anything, spontaneous and easygoing. Never bored.


Always evolving. Focused on the present with creative and adventure filled glimpses into the near future.

"Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself" - Henry Miller

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have surfed in Bangkok, Sydney and Melbourne. Have yet to host!


Have met some seriously charming individuals who made me feel comfortable in a new place with no shortage of good stories!


I am interested in different cultures, food, photography, documentary film, dancing, books, the outdoors (especially hiking!) and doing how the locals do. And traveling of course.

Music, Movies, and Books

Big fan of the dark comedy and documentary films. Last movie I really enjoyed in the theatre was Boyhood by Richard Linklater.

Currently reading:
A Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion; My first summer in the Sierra by John Muir

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Some amazing travel moments include: getting lost and living with a hill-tribe in Northern Thailand, climbing Mount Kinabalu at sunrise in Borneo, celebrating Thai New Year in Chiang Mai, crashing a Cambodian village wedding in Chi Phat, mountain-biking through the Cardamom Mountains, crossing the Cambodia-Vietnam border on motorbike and hiking the infamous Kalalau Trail in Kauai! Most recently: hiking the John Muir Trail in 23 days.

Teach, Learn, Share

Some of the things I am especially interested in learning more about at present include: starting a small business, wine, motorcycling, hiking in California, Oregon and Washington, learning Spanish, working on a yacht and living at sea, traveling Central and South America, digital photography, writing, collage and work opportunities in New Zealand.

Some of the things I can share: stories from travel in Europe and Southeast Asia, living abroad and teaching English in Taiwan, going on a working holiday in Australia, planting trees for money in the Canadian wilderness, skydiving, surviving Grad School and long-distance hiking.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Adventure stories. Recipes. Laughs. Perspective. Motivations.
