About Me


To do the impossible a little bit at a time.


I'm just an average guy who likes to meet new people. I am somewhat of a student of the human condition and the more different kinds of people I meet, the more I understand.
I wish that everybody could just be happy.


To always do the right thing, live a life free of hate, and to always dance through the day like nobody is looking.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Nothing official. I have driven around the United States (twice) stopping at friends houses and crashing on their couches. It is definately the best way to travel.


Going to concerts, anjoying fine beverages and brewing the like, reading and even writing on occasion. There is a lot of fun to be had in the area.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to lll kinds of music, from punk to european metal to jazz and the blues. I mostly read fantasy and philosophy, but have recently developed an interest in the classics.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once knew a guy who bought a coffee pot, gave it to a friend who sold it to me who sold it to another guy who never took it. I then returned it to its original owner and ending up with $4 profit. It really is a great story, but more of an oral tradition. If I get drunk enough, maybe I'll tell it.

Teach, Learn, Share

Never eat food at a place called "Mom's", never shoot pool at place called "Pop's", and never eat anything bigger that your head.
