About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To travel in a purposeful manner toward a vague destination.

ABOUT ME

Ah! So you want to know a little about me, eh? Lets see... first off I'm an overly ambitious idea-juggler suffering from chronic laziness. I want to do a lot of different, unrelated things - all in the search for my 'soul' passion. I appreciate new approaches to and outlooks on life. I like to travel for the experience not the destination. I like to party, but know when to chill.

IF YOU INVITE ME ON AN ADVENTURE YOU BETTER MEAN IT CAUSE CHANCES ARE I'LL TAKE YOU UP ON IT!

PHILOSOPHY

To be, rather than to seem.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

100% of the time I get into a conversation about travel I mention CouchSurfing. I was also the City Ambassador for Cocoa Beach.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Good places. Good people. Good times!

Interests

I have a lot of interests, but don't we all? These are some of mine: travel, bicycling, hammocking, surfing, laughing, THEME PARTIES, time travel, people who are interesting (is that redundant?), ropeswinging, waterfalls, snowboarding when I can, weird science, brewing, conversation not talking, Ultimate Frisbee, foreign movies, borrowed books, documentaries, the internets, the experience of experiencing, and lots and lots of music.

Music, Movies & Books

I have too many favorites so I'm going to try and pick 1 of each that I thought you would find interesting. If you have not heard, seen, or read any of these then check them out. If you found any of them worth it then shoot me an email with your own recommendations!

Music - Damion Suomi and the Minor Prophets
Movie - Waste Land (documentary)
Book - Why Man Explores (free)

Teach, Learn, Share

It is a universal trait in human nature, civilized and savage, to desire to learn all that is possible of other people. We are all curious about our neighbors - as to how they look and live and act, their business, beliefs, characters, and characteristics. It is so all around the world. The people of every race, class, and country are interested to learn what they can of other people living in distant parts of the world. It is this trait that gives a never-ending interest and charm to the tales of travel told by world travelers. - Horace A. Taylor

When one explores the unknown, one should look for surprises and be prepared to alter one's course.
- Donald P. Hearth

What I Can Share With Hosts

I have hosted way more than I have surfed so I know how to be a respectful guest. Plus, I can always offer a return place to stay when they come to visit Orlando.
