About Me


to live my life, one couch at a time


I like to think of myself as a creative, adventurous person, always looking forward to the next trip/adventure. I'm mostly interested in gaining new experiences, broadening my cultural knowledge, trying new foods, things, and meeting new people. My friends mean the world to me and I will always want to meet new people and impart my knowledge with others while at the same time learning from them!


I believe in exploration, open mindedness, and karma. My beliefs in god are ever developing and I feel that the purpose if my life is to find a peace that comes in knowing I've given all my best and if I fall short, it's only to allow me to learn more the second time. oh, and sometimes we just get kicked in the balls. I haven't figured that one out yet...

Music, Movies, and Books

This list is pretty much a lost cause. I am a fan of so many types of music it is pretty easy to please me. I do enjoy movies thogh I dont keep up on my hollywood gossip.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

500 ft full down in a helicopter. that is where the pilot drops the collective (lever that produces lift) and the helicopter basically drops out of the sky. this all ends with an abrupt but controlled landing where you come to a skid (50 meters long) on asphalt. Scary but fun. parasailed in lake powell. that rocked. Bungee jumped when I was 9. That actually sucked. I didn't bounce because I barely weighed 65 lbs.

Teach, Learn, Share

religion, technology, music, CARS, and as of recent, engineering. If you come at the right time, I may just be brewing up a batch of my Homemade Hopster Ale. The last one turned out way good and tasted even better than a Fat Tire (which os one of my all time favorite beers).
