About Me


Trail Building all day...finding some time for exploring. Want to do a long hike soon!


I have lived in/near the Whiteaker neighborhood since March 2005 here in Eugene and I love it. I was born and raised in Oregon and I think it is the greatest place on earth but there is nothing I enjoy more than traveling and seeing other places.

I am primarily work as a trail builder/wilderness construction. I will sometimes do wildland fire fighting, habitat restoration, and tree planting. Sometimes I am unemployed and get to explore or just work on my house

I have traveled all over the states by the power of my thumb and have had many aMAZing experiences! I love to meet fellow travelers....especially ones that choose to do so in a less conventional manner!


Don't wander around the house like a sewing machine that's just finished sewing a turd to a garbage can lid! It wont get you anywhere!

Coffee makes it worth getting out of bed!

My dog Zinc is my BFF.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am adding myself to this amazing community of people with a positive attitude!

I have been pretty much absent from the CS community since 2010. hoping to get back into it at some point


I have couch surfed all over the place and had a great time meeting all walks of life doing it. Lots of my Couch Surfing experience has been not through the website, just kind people offering me a place to crash while traveling.

Dec. 2006:

Okay so my CSing experience is official now...myself and 5 others CSed all over the northwest for two weeks and had a blast doing it. We made some great friends and had some amazing experiences.
