About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live life to the fullest while teaching and traveling as much as possible.

ABOUT ME

I am a funny, adventurous young guy who loves to travel and teach. I like to relax and joke around after work and while on vacation. I take my job seriously while I'm at work but afterwards its time to kick back.

I am active and love to see and try new things. I enjoy hiking, biking, camping, fencing, photography and more!

PHILOSOPHY

To live will be an awfully great adventure! (Peter Pan) has inspired me to live my life to the fullest and make the most of each and every day. I find the silver lining in everything I can and will find a way to enjoy even the worst of situations.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to everything from classical to jazz and pop to rock.

A good action movie is always a good time but I also enjoy a movie that makes me think.

I like reading sci-fi & fantasy. Just finished the most recent book in the Game of Thrones series and hoping George RR Martin doesn't kick the bucket before getting the next one out.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I spent a week trekking through Vietnamese jungles and camping in the world's largest cave!

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a teacher and love to share. I'm good at talking to people and easy to listen to. I like to think I'm well read and keep up with current events so we can sit down and have an engaging discussion about whats happening in the world.

I am a fencer & fencing coach. I love to spread knowledge about my favorite hobby and would be happy to teach you a thing or two about how the sport works.

What I Can Share with Hosts

As an English teacher I'm happy to help with conversation practice. I have a few tricks for pronunciation/accent help!

As a photographer I can take some great photos of you and your city.

As a traveler I've got lots of exciting adventure stories to share!
