About Me


to adventurously seek cultural awakening in a positive light.


I am a spirited man with a passion for nature, culture, art, travel, meeting new people, and adventure. Philosophy is one of the most captivating subjects for me, and I love to settle in to a deep conversation. However, I also love to cut loose, have some beers, and try new things. I view myself as polite, and I try to keep an optimistic mind. Future plans include my intention to work with NGO's in international aid projects, and eventually teach as a professor. Most of all, I am excited to vagabond for a while and hopefully gain some wisdom from the world.


We all play different roles in life, often we have multiple characters we use, yet they all build upon our true self. We should strive to play the roles that will create the mosaic we want to be.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
