About Me


To not let my creativity go to be waste and to always be imaginative


Orginally from the US, I've lived in New Zealand for the past 8 years. I've lived in several places through out the US and New Zealand, working a variety of low pay jobs, most notable pizza delivery which I did for over 10 years. Now I have become entrenched in the Arts studying English and Media Studies at University, and have been involved in many local theater projects, but most notably have directed several (no budget) short films, which is where my heart lies. I'm currently attending film school in Wellington. I'm also a Vegetarian.


I've also live by the philosophy of give and take freely, so am a firm believer in gift economies and the golden rule.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now I'm able to host couch surfers, and meet up with the local couch surfers


I've hosted several couch surfers, with my ex-wife Katy Tamargo, and just recently has my first experience staying with someone else through couch surfing. And I go to the couch surfing meet ups we have here in Wellington


I'm interested in films, in watching and making them, in particular the art of story telling. I've done quite a bit of hiking, and I enjoy surfing from time to time but am still at the beginner stage

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Am a HUGE Smashing Pumpkins fan, they comprise more than half of what I listen to altogether, I also enjoy Radiohead, Sleater Kinney, and post rock bands like Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, This will destroy you, and Jakob.
Movies: 12 Monkeys, Donnie Darko, Memento, Fight Club, The Lord of the Rings films, Star Wars Films, Lost Highway, Cloud Atlas
TV Shows: HUGE fan of Lost, Have been known as a Trekkie back in the day so like all Star Trek (pre 2000) and am really into Game of Thrones at the moment

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

That's hard to say I've been to some Amazing places in the US and New Zealand, but the most amazing this I think I've done was the first time I directed a film, what an experience that was.
