About Me


Stay on the move. Learn some stuff. Learn a little more stuff. Then, learn some stuff on top of that.

Helpin' out with being nice to the little ol Earth and everyone on it.


I'm happy to be alive and I love exploring.


Take all the opportunities you have to learn, explore, and be kind and happy.

- "Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, goddamnit, you've got to be kind." - KV

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Long-term trips in America and Europe. Nothing but amazing things from CS.

We haven't had a settled "home" yet since we first learned about CS, but when we do, we look forward to hosting and helping people the same way we have been helped. Currently, since we can't host, we just try to pay it forward in whatever capacity we can.
