About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy the little things

ABOUT ME

Down to earth. Maybe a little crazy. Musician at heart. I love traveling and meeting new people, and I love the outdoors. I'm a sucker for good beer. and I love late nights drinking it. It makes me speak my mind. so be ready :). I love hearing about people's experiences and swapping stories about traveling the world, and I won't get tired of it. Lookin for spontaneous people who want to enjoy life and live it to the fullest. I'm in between adventures, so convince me on where my next shall lead me!

PHILOSOPHY

"Life's a journey, not a destination." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Sharing my experiences and knowledge of couchsurfing with everyone I know who is traveling, in hopes of people having amazing experiences like I have.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've Surfed~10 times around Europe and had amazing experiences and met some amazing people. I hosted ~5 times while I lived in Chicago, and I did my best to give them the same unforgettable experiences I had.

Interests

Traveling, creating and listening to music, outdoor activities like skiing, climbing, camping, hiking, backpacking, and fishing. beer/wine culture. (is pub crawling an interest? :)

Music, Movies & Books

Im an addict of stupid comedies like Ted, the hangover, super bad, knocked up. I am also a fan of action movies, even some with a science fiction twist to them. Gotta love the Rour Hour Series. Beverly Hills Ninja. Son in Law. Remember the Titans. Drum line. I can enjoy anything though.

Music? Mumford and Sons. Rise Against. Blink 182 (yeh, im old school haha). The Beatles. Reel Big Fish. The Eagles. Recently I cannont stop listening to country music (The cowboy hat comes on sometimes <]8] )I also love listening (and playing) to big band jazz or small combo stuff. take me to a jazz pub/bar!

Books? Dan Brown (Angels&Demons, Davinci Code...) is amazing. I love novels like his that have a strong historical fiction tie to them. Decipher by Stel Pavlou. Thriller Novels - James Patterson, etc. Fantasy - Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, etc

One Amazing Thing I've Done

the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland Hiking around Montserrat in Spain Walking from Hohenschwangau to Neuschwanstein and the surrounding area was amazing Delirium in Brussels ;)
