About Me

Updated - June 4th 2019

Since 2011 I've gone from a single wild child to a family man with a stable job. I'm looking to reconnect with a community that I've lost touch with in favor of flashy hotels and AirBnBs that require less human interaction. Right now I work a very normal job and live a quiet life, but have a long list of crazy and confounding stories that led me to where I am today.

I'll let you sleep for free, entertain you with stories and provide exclusive insider knowledge of Kyiv- all for the price of a local beer.

If you want to know more my linkedin profile has a lot of info:

P.S. My wife has the final say on all guests so I apologize in advance if we can't host you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm looking to connect to people who are genuinely interested in a human experience. As pretentious as that sounds, there are plenty of people these days who are traveling just for the sake of travel and I know for you there is probably more to it than that and I want to find out.

Tell me your story and I'll share mine, more different the better I say.
