About Me


Not accepting CS's. Kind of Burnt out of CS at the moment!


Freshly minted at 30. Currently living in Cambridge to bang my head on a wall and get a Masters in Engineering. I enjoy living with roommates, and have traveled to all most every part of Portland living in different areas. I like to design things, and try them out. Hopefully someday, I can create something really cool, and then retire young... By young I mean before I am 40...

I can be funny, I have no fear when I am on a snowboard. I love to fly airplanes.

I want to solve a big problem for the world, and in some small way make it a better place.

I want to invent a theory even if it isn't correct... I am currently learning Argentine Tango, and it made me realize that there are so many things that look easy when others do them, but are not if you try.

I love the art of conversation. I hate writing about myself, I should hire a biographer to do it for me.


I want to get a tattoo that says “In search of the truth" in Latin...

So much to learn so little time.

We end life the way we begin, in diapers?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I email a lot! Sometimes I have funny things to say!


I have only stayed over at people that I know thus far... But i enjoy meeting new people, and know a lot about Portland...

This one time I did wake up at a house and didn't know where I was. It turned out that if you drink too much PBR it can happen to you as well...


Flying, Engineering, motorcycles, Art, history (Via Bathroom Reader), great discussions... Ideas, experiments, traveling, Brazilian Ju-Jitsu, snowboarding, Tango and what ever else catches my eye...

Meeting Bill Murray, yeah it could happen when I got to NY.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once hiked up to an abandoned fir lookout on the coast, just to see the most amazing sunset, and sun rise that I have ever seen... Some times this world doesn't seem real, espically when flying... I want to fill this in, in a few years...

Teach, Learn, Share

Basics of brazilian Ju-jitsu, how to fix a door, how to repair a small engine, how to start a harley with a kick-start, how to do make things...
