About Me


Moving to Florida from upstate New York.


In the past three years I've lived on a permaculture farm in Israel, camped on the Black Sea in Russia, swam with whale sharks in Indonesia, helped to build a straw bale house in an Ecovillage, forayed into real estate investing, and now I'm moving back home. Love to play music, cook, forage, grow things, hike, connect with others.


Be the change you want to see in the world.

We are all One.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far I've used Couchsurfing to find places to stay on my travels where I don't have any personal connections. Hope to host in the future.


I haven't used it for a few years, but had a great experience using it a few years ago.


Creating regenerative culture through growing food, communities, and myself. My interests are really varied, I like to experience as much of life as I can. I spend most of my time writing, playing music, meditating, reading, gardening, facilitating gatherings, having deep conversations, hiking, camping, exploring, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiked into Ijen at night, a volcano in Java, Indonesia. Look it up on YouTube.
