About Me



Helpin' out with being nice to the little ol Earth.


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


Even if we die old, we still aren't here for very long and we have to take all the opportunities we can 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, goddamn it, you've got to be kind." - KV

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've had a really positive experience surfing through America on two separate long-term trips. Now, I'm going through Europe!


-extremely overweight cats
-writing (trying not to suck at it)
-photography (like everyone else)
-environmental protection (I'm nowhere near as informed as I aim to be)
- growing organic things (like plants, not babies)
- the mechanics and history of language
-music (maybe finally having enough discipline to become proficient on an instrument)
- beer (drinking it, brewing it, drinking it)
-books you want to read more than once

Music, Movies, and Books

Music -- I'm open to all kinds of music but some of my favorite artists are: The National, Gregory Alan Isakov, Andrew Bird, Shovels & Rope, The War On Drugs, Van Morrison (Yes, it's true. He wrote songs that aren't "Brown Eyed Girl"!), Josh Ritter, The Strokes

Books -- The Naked and The Dead (and pretty much any WWII literature), In Cold Blood, The Executioner's Song, Franny and Zooey, Harry Potter, East of Eden, Slaughterhouse 5, A Separate Peace

Movies: any and all Wes Anderson movies

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I don't really like this question. I'd rather talk about experiences in person if we meet instead of trying to describe something out of context which usually just comes off as a bit egotistical.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach photography! I want to learn mostly anything, to be specific.
