About Me


To learn how to sail!


I like to try to live life to the fullest. I'm a big fan of spontaneity, doing what feels right, optimism. I think my friends would describe me as just a guy trying to have fun and live life how it should be lived!


“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
― Dr. Seuss

I believe in universal altruism. Spread the good feelings and love around!!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I am brand new to couch-surfing!


Music. I am mildly obsessed with music. Going to concerts and festivals. Boardgames. Reading. I LOVE reading. I like to surround myself with good people and drink beer. Soccer. Hockey. Being free. Being happy. Smiling. Writing. Not watching TV. Being outside. Nature.

Music, Movies & Books

NPR Music.
I'll read pretty much anything and either love it or quit it. As an English major, I've had to learn to be able to put a book down if it doesn't please you. I am still developing my love for movies. It's coming along quite nicely, thank you!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Awestruck. Here are some things that leave me awestruck every time I experience them. Northern lights. Full moons. Natural disasters. Water in large amounts. Snow. Mountains. Sunny days during a Pacific Northwest winter. Things that "just work," like reciprocal roofs on houses.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to learn how to sail so that I can cross the ocean in a boat instead of a plane.
