About Me


Time - the true currency - and how`to spend it


I'm a UW-Madison grad, studied engineering, with a minor in archaeology. I'm hanging around Charleston, semi-steady and semi-transient. My projects include writing a book about travel, and performing standup comedy.

I enjoy making music (rock n roll), nighttime exploring, and random jokes.

I'm known as being laid back, sometimes a little too much for my own good. I am more of a listener than a talker, though I speak up when I need to.

I like to make jokes.. the greatest feeling in the world is making a room of people laugh.

In idle moments, I enjoy thinking about the human body, the world, human progress, the universe, etc.

I also like nothing better than to sit out on the grass, and just look around and enjoy consciousness. It's easy and fun.

I enjoy meeting people and gaining a glimpse inside their mind and of the way they view the world.

After some misadventures with an uncooperative car in the South, I have been inspired to write. In fact, it's becoming a book! The kindness of strangers, and the colorfulness of CouchSurfers made my travels possible.

My website (and seedlings of a book):


To make everyday things extraordinary, and make the extraordinary common.

Life is too short to not do what you want. Drama is rarely worth it, and forgiveness is the key to happiness.

We may not know why we exist, but we do know that consciousness is a quirky phenomenon. My goal is explore and make the most of it.

I guess, deep down, I crave experiences.

Maybe because I am young, I see time ticking away. I want to do things that I can look back at, and be proud of.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Took a series of road trips across the U.S. - couchsurfing most of the way, and meeting wonderful characters.

I worked on an archaeological dig. After visiting some sites first hand in Mexico, I decided to take a minor at school. A few years back, I went to Belize for about a month, and moved a ridiculous amount of dirt.

Went to various CouchCrashes, and helped organize a few.

Teach, Learn, Share

Lots of random knowledge about science, especially physics and astronomy.

Public speaking - even though I can be a quiet person, I have a knack for giving talks in large groups

Comedy - I do both standup and improv. I say stuff; sometimes people laugh.

A desire to boil life down to its basics, and enjoy it for what it is.
