About Me


To have fun, lots of laughs, build cool stuff, and possibly even change the way we do things.


I am an entrepreneur, and a jack of all trades. From trades to design and programming, I am all over the place. I've spent the last decade in the startup world helping build brands and develop companies from scratch.


Some people see things the way they are and ask, "why"?...I dream of things that never were, and ask "why not"?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Although I currently can't host, in the past I have hosted lots of people from all over the world while living in Chicago to give people the best opportunity to see Chicago. When possible, I was able to do quick tours for couch surfers to get bearings on the city and how its laid out, as well as the showcase the many great neighborhoods the city has to offer.


As always, its been fun helping those that want to see Chicago and share what I know. I was first introduced to couch surfing through my friend Jacky. So far my experiences have been as a host, except for one time that I surfed in Wisconsin. Each time has been awesome and have met great people!


I build stuff, and solve complex problems with simple solutions...

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy movies of all sorts, and when I have a chance I try to catch up on some favorites. I listen to all sorts of music. As for books, I get the chance to read once in a while when I am not working on projects, so I am sure I am missing out on many great reads currently.
