About Me


Peace of mind, because in this life you're lucky if you can even find that.


I am a traveller. I enjoy finding strange and unique places and people. I pride myself on my open-mindedness and always try to find fresh perspectives on life.

Most of my time is spent thinking. I love philosophy and trying to figure out what life really is.

Things I tend do dislike are television, advertising, and disrespect for the planet and other living things.

A perfect evening is one shared with good company, good food, and good music.

As far as profession, I went to film school in Denver Colorado and then shortly moved to Los Angeles to work as a freelance video editor.

I love photography and visual art, fimmaking, animation and anything that feeds the eyes.


Life should be fun and open.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't done much yet, I'll let you know once I do.


Not much. But love the concept and want to dive right in.


Filmmaking, photography, animation, travelling.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all music that is made for the sake of creating art. All it has to be is made from the heart.
