About Me


To see the world, publish a book, and make my life one that anyone would want to be a part of.


I am teacher now but still love learning new things all the time. My students mean a lot to me and I love getting to work with them five days a week, even on the hard days. But I don't let my job define me; so as for the rest, I love to explore and my greatest dream in life would be to hike, camp, or explore places I haven't touched foot on yet. Goofing off with my friends and getting to know new people are extremely important to me. For the rest, I think the interests section has it covered.


There are infinite numbers of people to meet, places to go, and things to learn. I know I can't see or do it all but I want to experience as much as I can. As far as traveling philosophy, I think it's very important to always understand your role as a traveler wherever you go. I want to learn about the cultures of the places I visit and do as much as I can but without creating the negative effects of travel as much as possible. I've thought about this more and more as I've traveled and lived abroad- perhaps it's something we could talk about together :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing



I love reading, playing games, and hanging out with friends. I like to do a lot things but my ideal night is probably hanging out with friends, old and new, and talking over beers.

I enjoy watching movies, listening to music, and talking with people about anything they're passionate about. I also really love sports and the outdoors, I am always ready to do something active!

Music, Movies, and Books

Books- I love to read and read a lot of different things. I'm always open to recommendations and love discussing books with anyone!

Music- a pretty infinite list but the bigs would be Neil Young, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, Tallest Man on Earth, Paul Simon, Dream Theater. But, my tastes are pretty broad and I like a lot different things.

Movies- I love watching new movies but I'm not so passionate about any one thing. I watch just about anything and am always ready to watch new movies!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Perhaps my favorite thing I've ever done is go to Borobudur at sunrise. It was a beautiful experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

There are endless things left to learn in this world. If everyone I surf or host with could take one thing from me and I one from them, I would be happy.
