About Me

Filmmaking and music. The reasons for getting out of bed each morning.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I recently left my full-time job of 2 years to pursue my passion of filmmaking and travel. I plan to teach abroad in 2016. Until then I'm working on cranking out a couple of short films & music videos while also traveling around the world. During my travels I hope to meet interesting people while immersing myself in various cultures. Beginning on October 5th, 2015 I plan to backpack through Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, and Netherlands.


Filmmaking, music, photography, people watching, awkward dancing, and mildly drunk conversations about the beauty & chaos of everything.
