About Me


Meet cool people, enjoy life, and hopefully learn a little something along the way


I'm a film geek, music lover, pop culture aficionado, master of sarcasm. I live to travel. I try to get away on a big trip at least once a year. I also write for a film and comics website and travel often for festivals. I love seeing new places and encountering new cultures. I also love the outdoors, hiking, camping, and wildlife in general. I'm the type of person who will hop in the car and drive across the country because I can, jump at the chance to crew a yacht on the ocean, or find myself working on a farm in the middle of nowhere.


I've always lusted after adventure. I live my every day life for the moments when I can take off on a sailboat or backpack across a country.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I host when I have time off and make sure to take an active interest in showing my guests around the city.

I surf like crazy when I'm traveling and like for my hosts to join in on my crazy adventures when they can.


My first couchsurfing experience completely sold me on the concept and as soon as I returned home I started hosting like gangbusters. I use it everywhere I go, have met some amazing people, and shared some awesome experiences.


Travel, Film, Camping, Meeting new people,

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: Coen brothers, Tarantino, Aronofsky, Nicolas Winding Refn.
Charlie Kaufman is a mad, mad genius.
In Bruges, Blue Valentine, M, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, Gone Baby Gone, Yojimbo, Bronson, Dr. Strangelove, A Single Man, The Graduate, Groundhog Day, Children of Men, Midnight In Paris

I write and shoot video for a local Austin music blog so my tastes tend to lean towards local, obscure and indie.

Books: Jonathan Ames, Chuck Palahniuk, Jack London, William S. Burroughs, Hunter S. Thompson.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Spent two weeks driving highway 1 and camping Big Sur solo.

Solo hiked across all of Iceland for 3 months.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you surf with me you are pretty much guaranteed to be subjected to at least one useless movie trivia fact, shown the must sees of Austin, and maybe an impromptu trip to the beach or Enchanted Rock.
