About Me

Hello world. I'm a 26 year old man about town living in Joshua Tree, the jewel of the desert. I travel to Los Angeles sporadically when I am dog sitting or have a gig. I lived here for six years but am constantly discovering new things about the city, for better or worse. I'm very easy going, can clean a house professionally, and cook Italian just like mama used to. You can find me reading schlocky sci-fi or listening to engaging podcasts. I would love to be your guest and meet my couchsurfing compatriots.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I live in what I consider to be a real hidden gem, and I love the opportunity to show people that there is a magical and spiritual place so close to LA. I think if more realms and institutions took on the couch surfing spirit we as a civilization would have a better understanding of one another and all the beauty that leads to. When I come to LA for work I love to stay in different places and get a feel for different parts of the city.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I volunteered for a year at the gentle barn. I went up on the weekends to watch over a herd of 30 sheep & goats, as well as three young calves. When the calves got old enough I was there to introduce them to the larger herd of cows. It was really inspiring to see the moment of acceptance of belonging, nature taking its course and all that.
