About Me

My favorite places to go are places I've never been before. I'm a mellow guy who thinks he's pretty funny, and I enjoy making artwork, cooking, hiking, exploring, petting animals, and wasting time with my friends. Always learning new things. @ndcompton and @ndcomptonarts on Instagram.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

This sort of community is part of a great movement of people trying to connect with each other and explore the world in a new way. I have enjoyed hosting, surfing, and going to meetups, and plan to keep it going.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I wandered around 17 countries for about eight months with very little plan (that seems to be par for the course around you other Couchsurfing folks). I met wonderful people and learned so much. My goal is to keep having experiences like that for the rest of my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share everything I know with you, which includes some pretty great river chilling spots.

You get a free place to stay, an insider look at Richmond, some good coffee, and my company if you want it.
