About Me


chasing the dream


I grew up in Italy, Taiwan, Indiana, and Texas and now reside in Salt Lake City, UT. I can be low energy, high-energy, over the top, in bad taste, yet very tasteful. Just depends on my mood. You could say traveling is in my blood. Having grown up around the world, I traveled quite a bit with my family. And that adventurous bug still remains. One of my lifetime goals is to sail around the world.

I'm a big cyclist, enjoy the snow and slopes, and like to wax philosophical on relevant issues. I am a product developer, marketer and strategist for KURU the most comfortable shoes in the world.

I can show you around town. There's plenty of history here.


Life is too short not to have fun, travel, and culture yourself outside of the bubble we all call home. Seeking knowledge is not only a passion, but necessary for a full life. Be Good, and Good will come back to you.

That, and always trust and follow your gut.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've now logged a slew of couchsurfing experiences. Awesome experience, met cool people and had a great time. I'm amazed at how friendly, accommodating, and enjoyable it's been couchsurfing.


I love to travel, cycle, dream, talk, explore, snowboard, ski, Subarus, and all things beautiful, fun, and cool. I enjoy other cultures and trying out new foods.

Music, Movies, and Books

Trance, rock, country, alternative, chill, hip-hop. I'm open to most music. With regards to books, I generally spend time in business related topics. On occasion, I'll pick up fiction.
