About Me


Game Plan: See all the bits of France that are cool as hell. From what I can tell, this is all the bits of France.


Currently, I'm an art student taking a term for travel and inspiration and enjoyment. I am also a graphic designer, and love art and design and the whole sloppy gradient between the two.

I'm an easy going, sharp dude who gets along with most everyone, and take my integrity and hospitality seriously, but myself lightly.


I look for the narrative in cultures, in people, in my life and my work. Roll with it, enjoy it, and if you don'y enjoy it, suck it up. I do my bet to live with respect and humility.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm headed to France now, to stay with friends and family, and hopefully with you, or a while.


I haven't done any couch surfing at all, but have heard nothing but amazing stories. Hopefully I'll be able to pass some of my own on.


Art, design, music, culture, broadly vague concepts. More specifically, I love printmaking, presses, and typography. I have a strong passion for well made and well designed objects, and am fascinated by new things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Work on and run a huge haunted house in texas with my father, building strange things, making people excited and scared.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you all the process of printing besides offset and lithography (and offset lithography). I can show you basic fundamental of design, color theory, and how to develop an eye for the minutie of designed things. I can show you the ropes of the Creative Suite and set you on your way.
