About Me

Update: As of November 27th through April 2018 I will be backpacking Hawaii, big island specifically, with 3 of my best friends so I won't be able to host back in Minneapolis. Looking to meet up and make some new friends otherwise. Aloha!

Home and ready to host again in Minneapolis

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My friends North of the boarder recommended the app. They know my love for travel and thought it would be a good fit for me. My trips primarily are into the woods, up a mountain or sleeping in my hammock on a beach. I've never had the interest in seeing the inside of a hotel room, I'd sooner sleep in a car. Now that I've hosted and surfed I truly understand what it's about and I really enjoy it. I've met some amazing people doing extraordinary things with their lives that I may have never crossed paths with otherwise.


Hiking, biking, snowboarding, boogie boarding, beaches and hammocks, the sound of the ocean, how I'd like to live near a mountain or an island in the sea, vegetables and growing them, I'm a gardener and an urban chicken farmer. My true passion is traveling. Travel cheap travel more. Let's put these hotels out of business as a community.

Music, Movies, and Books

Not a huge reader unless we consider Google which is one of my dearest friends. I'm a research junky, full of useless facts. Movies I'll pass on too. They're fun now and then but I'd rather spend my time outside experiencing the fruits of the world. Music on the other hand is a huge part of my life. Folk, Bluegrass, Reggae, Hip Hop. Minneapolis has a great local music scene and if you stay with me while in town it's likely going to be on the top of my list to show you.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've hiked the Napali Coast in Kauai and I'm still dreaming of selling everything and moving to the island.

Update 2018: I've bought land on the big island after spending a winter there, it's raw and undeveloped but my dream has begun.

Teach, Learn, Share

Jack of all trades master of some. Full of statistics and useless information, capable of building a house, I could teach on sustainable living, gardening and canning your fruits. Maybe brewing beers if that interests ya. Ultra light backpacking is a also a great topic.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A new friend, a hug, a story, a laugh.
