About Me

I was raised by my mother and father on a ranch in the highland deserts of Idaho. I spent my childhood training horses and competing in rodeos.

I really love cooking. Something about zoning out in the kitchen and putting a few spins on old family recipes relaxes me. I love feeding people and hosting people. There is no better feeling than catering a fantastic meal with close and new friends.

I'm founder of a nonprofit organization in East Africa. I work with Maasai indigenous communities on holistic sustainable development and wealth realization. I won't bore you with the details of my awesome projects, ha ha, but we're kicking ass and taking some serious names in the climate change game.

My most recent interest is the human genome. I'm looking forward to studying biological anthropology in hopes of contributing to a more intricate map of the great human migration out of Africa 40,000 years ago and through to the modern age.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have met some of my closest friends through couchsurfing. It is a wonderful platform for sharing and inspiring free spirits to follow their dreams and support one another in our quest for new experiences and epic adventures.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am very intrigued with the aspect of digital learning. I spend most of my time reading or enjoying Some of my favorite youtube channels Crashcourse, Scishow, Braincraft, Asapscience, Vsauce, Veritasium, TED.

I love to read, my favorite book I have read recently is Physics of the Future by Michio Kaku.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The organization I founded is hands down the most amazing thing I've done in my life. The indigenous communities and wisdom of elders I encounter with ICCS has changed the way I experience everything. I'm so thankful to have found my true calling and purpose in life. You would not believe the people I get to work with! I could go on for hours about our community but simply put each one is inspirational and what we are building together is going to change the world.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have had the privilege to travel to very remote regions of the world and interact with incredible cultures. The more I travel, I realize just how much there is to learn about the world. Seven Billion people, almost 200 countries and around 6,500 languages, the opportunities to grow are endless. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your unique perspective on our existence.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to cook food from all over the world. I also enjoy sharing stories and pictures from our travels. I rarely come empty handed. It would also be wonderful to play music together. I play acoustic guitar and my wonderful partner Szamor plays Base. If you don't play a material instrument I bet you have a wonderful voice. :-).
