About Me


Make a living doing what I am passionate about - new experiences, enjoying the moment, capturing something special with an image



Ok, thats just some of it. I pretty easy going and dont ask for much. Of course I love photography so if you are with me you may get photographed! :)


I think this idea of one community is one that will save mankind. Fear is what will ultimately lead to destruction and traveling ultimately breaks down fear bit by bit. No matter how different we are, we will only survive if we can share this limited space we all call home.

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel,
read only a page.” - St. Augustine

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Im an eager to give/take a couch - but Im usually traveling, so Im taking more couches than giving at the moment!

“Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the Romance of the unusual.” ― E. Hemingway


New to the surfing side but open to new and different experiences! I have hosted a few times as well as had a few drinks with travelers. Unfortunately not too many people came through Nebraska.


Warm ocean water, cold beers, hiking, camping, running, walking around a new place for the first time. Chatting with a new friend from another life....
