About Me

**currently on a road trip from Miami to LA**
I may reach out for a last minute place to crash as it may be too hot to sleep in my car at night.

I'm in the Sports industry so I'm on the road quite a bit for work. I also do a fair share of solo travel and visiting friends/family around the country.

I stay in quite a bit of hotels, but would much rather stay with friends/family when I can. Although I do have a minivan now... so it's nice to have options. I have a portable bed that's easy to take in and out.

I may not necessarily need a place to crash, but maybe an occasional hot shower and some fun company.

I'm curious about Life and learn by meeting people and talking about it. Usually over food, gin, or arts and live entertainment.

I love this app for connecting with other transients and travelers along the way. I prefer to learn about an area or culture directly through the people who live there. I know I am the sum of everyone I've ever met.

If I'm in your city, please reach out with any local recommendations (especially food) or if you'd like to connect. Always looking for other useful travel apps too.

Hope to cross paths and share stories.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

There's a comfort in meeting strangers that feel like friends you've known for years. My kind of people, regardless of what city I'm in.

I'm endlessly curious and love sharing conversation and experiences with others. You can learn something from every person you meet.

Some favorite quotes;
The world is as big or as small as you make it.

The grass isn't greener on the other side; it's greener where you water it.

The glass isn't half empty or half full; it's re-fillable.

Know your worth and then add tax to it.
