About Me

I am an American and now I teach English at a university in Hefei China. I have lived in South Korea, Poland, and China. I love to travel and I've met all kinds of people. I'm an artist who loves to draw and write stories. I also love nature. I will go hiking whenever I have the chance. Many of my friends are dogs and I'm allergic to cats. I am the kind of person who played in the dirt as a child and still loves it as an adult. I hug trees. I think Superman could beat up Batman easily. I can often be found with my nose stuck inside a book. I am a terrible cook but I'm trying to learn. I like karaoke but I don't like pop music so it's hard to find good songs to sing. I love snow. I am a white, American, heterosexual, male with red hair, hazel eyes, an affinity for spicy food, not much mathematical skill at all, and who is running out of ideas to write in this 'About Me' section.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm am couchsurfing because I have many friends that have tried it and they've said good things about their experiences. I travel a lot so it seems practical and I also think it will be a fantastic way to meet new people.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saved a dog's life once. I think I'm most proud of that. I love dogs.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm an English teacher so I'd be happy to teach a host. I am a terrible cook but I'd try to cook for a host. I can tell stupid jokes, become friends with dogs, sing with birds, embarrass myself at karaoke, run long distances, and eat entire large pizzas without stopping for breath. I'm not sure if hosts want any of those things.
