About Me


Going places, Seeing things, Folding Paper Airplanes


I have decided to leave the United States and spend some time in Europe, I will be focusing the majority of my time on my TEFL certificate but i still would like to enjoy my time, During my brief stay in London i hope i can find a CS host and make some new friends.

If anyone know of someone available to host on the 9th or 10th in London please let me know asap, i will do whatever it takes to find couch, did i mention i am very good at cleaning?

On the 12th i will be leaving London for Lisbon, Portugal.


I believe that all mankind is connected in a way most haven't realized or just completely ignore. I used to think that family was our only connection, then i was introduced(into indoctrination 'lol)to religion and i saw that is my connection to others, through my pursuits in science i see that every new connection in my life only helps better myself, I learn so much from others, in everything they do. I want to spend the rest of my life experiencing everything, i no longer believe in settling for something, I also know that i am the only one in control of my life, so i must make the best possible decisions for myself and others, Building bridges is my new philosophy, no matter what religion, ethnicity or background, i have such a strong desire to see everything that this world has to offer. So far i have run into many who have the same goals and desires as I, they all came to this way of thinking on their own

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am living Loule, Portugal. I have an condo style house attached to a villa and will be able to host soon. If anyone is looking for a place to stay in the Algarve let me know and we can talk and see if something can be worked out.


We have never had vast sums of money where we could afford hotel rooms, we have been lucky enough to travel and make new friends who have opened their homes up to us out of the kindness of their hearts.


I have interests in almost every topic, i thrive to learn, even if it all isn't retained for future use i use a little bit of everything i learn. My strongest interests are in Mechanical Engineering and Cell Biology, after that it would have to be alternative energy and renewable energy, though i do most of my own research with the internet i was able to meet some very intelligent Engineers when i lived in Hawaii, i would love to take some classes in these fields but even more meet people who are actually doing significant work in these fields already. I can learn from books but it's nothing compared to a little hands on experience.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Christmas of this last year i decided to move to Europe, and on the first i purchased my tickets, On the 8th i will be leaving the United States and in my new home Faro, Portugal on the 12th.

All it takes is a decision to change you're life, i just hope to make the right ones, I hope to do many Amazing things with the community of CS.

Teach, Learn, Share

You know i guess the only thing i can say is, I met the Enemy and his was the same as my Allie.
All anyone needs is a push in the right direction, the only reason the ignorant stay that way is cause we give them a reason, a stronger argument in a positive tone is the best way.
