About Me

I live in the super slow lane.
Just another dude who likes to do everything. I gravitate toward extreme experiences, anything from being overly reckless to completely still, but not much of what's in between.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

No copy-paste requests will be accepted. If you have the time to travel to a new place, you have 2 minutes necessary to write a personal request! Also, if you stay with us, please leave a reference! It's nice to have something to remember people by.

After all, the only things in life that aren't replaceable are the memories.


I can hold my breath for almost 6 minutes. I once played Guildenstern. Hiking solo in the trying to sing to warn away bears, I've gotten lost in the mountains and almost died running out of water in at least two countries. Last year I soloed around a Tibetan holy mountain range, didn't get lost, run out of water OR almost die. Booyah. Learning. It's what happens when you survive.

And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn" - FN

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Summited a foggy mountain and witnessed heaven amidst the rolling beds of clouds, the endless range of snow-capped peaks that broke through them, and the reddish-golden burn of the setting sun that left the most incredible view of the milky way behind it.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to sit still, to shadowbox, dance, play a bunch of instruments, make the best hotpot

What I Can Share with Hosts

Ideas, music, food and stories, like when I jammed my finger sparring a kungfu master in Budapest, or when that random guy in Medellin shot at me from his car at 4 in the morning.
