About Me

I can't host right now, but if you find yourself in Hamilton, I'm happy to show you around if I'm in town.

"Being realistic is the most commonly traveled road to mediocrity."
-Will Smith (as in Big Willy Style, my first CD)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

It started with a buddy's recommendation before my first road trip. Now I have a lot of longtime friends that I can trace back to CouchSurfing– people who hosted me, stayed with me, or were friends with people I stayed with.

For me, it's about mutual exchange– you share your culture and ideas with me, and I'll give you the best experience I know how wherever I'm living.


Agriculture--I make videos about the ag industry to show the general public how agriculture works.

Horticulture– I have an outdoor garden when I can, and grow some hydroponic greens over the winter.

Cycling / Running / Hiking / Bouldering-- pretty much any outdoor sport.

Music, Movies & Books

Broom of the System by David Foster Wallace
Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann
Razor's Edge by W. Somerset Maugham

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Worked as a cook in a jail for kids for almost a year. It still one of the most powerful realities I've been exposed to.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you care about it, I want to hear about it.

After being surrounded by ski bums and trekking through mountains for most of my life, I still haven't been skiing but would like to learn.

Happy to teach you how to cook, survive in the woods, and use your camera.
