About Me


I'm kind of like a Turkish Trekker....


I'm an American from Seattle currently residing in Turkey. In the US, I worked in finance at a local credit union. In Turkey, I teach English. When I am not working, I travel to fuel my soul. If I stay in one place for too long, I tend to get bored.

By the way, I have a blog about my experiences living in Turkey. Check it out:


I live for today and try not to worry about tomorrow. My wife is jealous of me because I am always a glass-half-full kind of guy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't surfed yet, but am anxious to try it out. We've hosted many surfers at our house and we've really enjoyed it.


We have had positive experiences with the travelers and surfers we have met. We look forward to welcoming more people to our home!


Traveling, eating, cycling, music, movies.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all kinds of music, in particular, music that originated in the 90's from the Seattle area. Pearljam, Dave Matthews Band, The Swell name a few.
