About Me


To begin to live. To escape the cubicle farm.


I am alive. I am a male. I am a friend (or possible friend). I like to feel alive to avoid thinking about why I am alive. New experiences and reminiscing tend to be enjoyable. Just spent five and a half years getting two degrees: Engineering and education. My worldview is slightly clearer as a result, but there are still lots to learn.

UPDATE: I just spent the better part of 2 years working in front of a computer and educating myself on various subjects. I fell in love with houses and real estate, and see that in my future.

Other than that, the holes can be filled over a beer (or glass of wine) when we meet.


Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.

That is my cliche response. I doubt that I can say it any better without a flurry of spelling and grammar errors, so I will leave it at that. Personal philosophy changes as your surroundings change. Maybe we can figure one out.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Bangkok: a cool american dude fed me stories and good times before I headed off to Cambodia


Music, Movies, Books, Sports, .. , Most things interest me to varying degrees

I like lists. It is nice to see people take a stance on something--anything. I don't even need to read the description, the stance is enough. Opposing the indifferent nature of humans excites me.

I also like coffee and the high it brings. I tend to like people that share my surname, but that is not absolute.

I love people that live for the moment, and don't text at the dinner table. It is something that I strive for, moments make our lives.
