About Me


Travel the world... and eat EVERYTHING.


Grew up in Illinois, moved to China for six years living in Beijing and Shanghai. Returned to the US for college, and the back to IL for work. After a few years, took a shot at the west coast and moved to California before returning to IL again.

Love to eat, enjoy random adventures, and just looking to see more of the world on a regular basis.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've met a few couchsurfers at events in Chicago and I met with a couchsurfer in Cambodia who showed me around Phnom Penh. That's about it so far! Haven't really tried staying on anyone's couch!


Traveling, Eating, Videogames, Anime, Rock Climbing, Billiards, and a bit of everything.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw the sun rise over Mount Everest from just below base camp one on the China side. it's a very... tranquil moment sitting outside in the cold staring at Everest.

Teach, Learn, Share

Hmmm... not sure, I know a bunch of random stuff, but not sure any of it's valuable!
