About Me


Spontaneous inspiration


My body is in Washington DC, My mind in Medellin, and my heart is in Cusco.


I have never been one to feel comfortable in one spot, a restless soul, like so many on here. Not satisfied with simply existing, my plan is to actually live.I refuse to make compromises with my life any longer. I want to create a living testimony with each breath that I take.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet all you beautifully crazy people out there in the world.


To get back in touch with the human culture. Find healing and redemption through music, writing and social drinking.

Music, Movies, and Books

There are too many works to list here that have influenced me in creating some of my own. If and when we meet, we'll have a conversation about them...over beer of course.

Teach, Learn, Share

One does not truly know what one knows until it spews forward on any given night where alcohol is involved. From classic film to ancient Sumerian culture. I can teach you the guitar and verse you in conspiracy theories. What I ask in return is for you to tell me about your life and allow for the present to be shared.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share stories, laughter and friendship.
