About Me


Makin' my way down South America volunteering, surfing, and playing rugby..... then off to more adventures in New Zealand!


I am the luckiest guy on the planet. The people I have met in my travels have been legendary!I am 29 yrs old. Through a really weird series of events and the love of couch surfers Imanaged to get work teaching ballroom dance in Melbourne, Australia I also boxed in Thailandl. I play rugby, I surf, and I am a decent cook. I love animals, I used to be a marine mammal trainer. Hitchhiking is my preferred method of transport. I have to pay back a lot of good travel Karma!


Live hard. Life is too short to follow Lonely Planet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am available to host people when I am back in the US. But I try to refer as many people as possible to the CS project.


I really enjoy meeting like-minded individuals who take in travellers the same way I would :)


Rugby, AFL, Travel,surfing, and solid conversation with anyone! I also love to volunteer, I work a lot with kids with special needs.

Music, Movies, and Books

Sublime! Their music changed me. I am fascinated by world religions, cults, and other ways of life that people subscribe to around the world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Went Scuba diving with a 7000 lb killer whale. And got attacked.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help you out on your Spanish and I promise you I can teach you how to surf. Apparently I am qualified to teach ballroom dance as well. I can also tell you about Communist Cuba a topic I am pretty passionate about. I can teach you a little bit of salsa and how to play rugby! A great skill I think everyone should have is how to cook a FULL meal over an open fire. I can teach you this.
The number one thing I want to learn is the guitar. I want to be able to keep a melody so I can write songs! Nothing too serious but, you know. I want to learn how to fish. Man I don't know what I am doing when I go fishing. I would also like someone to help me improve my cigarette rolling? I would also love to learn about any religion/culture.
