About Me


Take the Tömer at Ankara Üniversitesi, Turkey


I travel for outdoor activities, rekindling/making relationships, linguistic, cultural and educational purposes. Museums and monuments can wait; I'd rather participate in more sportive or arduous activities.

I am married to my best friend Tomasa del Carmen (link to her profile here:

I host because I like to feel as if I am traveling myself. I also know what it is like to travel on a budget and to find a good host.

I surf because some of the strongest, most fulfilling relationships I have ever had were in someway linked to Couchsurfing. I could stay in a nice hotel with all of the ostentatious amenities I could ever ask for but I'd rather build memorable relationships any day.

I am at a time in my life when I feel emancipated. I no longer have a job I hate, tied to a desk in a florescent lit cubicle.

If you have any further questions, let's meet for tea!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Expanded my comfort zone.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach rock climbing, English and Spanish.
I want to learn Turkish, yoga, cooking/baking and obtain my Wilderness EMT & mountain guide certifications. I really want to go back to school to obtain a degree.

What I Can Share with Hosts

• I buy groceries & prepare meals for my host as a small appreciation for having me in their home. I always make an effort to take them out for dinner or tea if they have time for it.
• I give my hosts peace of mind that I am an independent traveler and will not significantly disrupt their daily routines.
• Spending time with my hosts is a top priority. I am not looking for free accommodations, I am looking to share knowledge, stories & experiences.
• I can bring beverages, foods, goods and services from the United States (Florida) upon request in advance. No guarantees of course.
• I most certainly will return the favor (host) when visiting where I live.
