About Me


To meet new people by flying all over the US using my airplane. I want to see America without all the tourist attractions. Next stop South America.


I am a modern renaissance man. I enjoy learning anything and everything. Not much for structure and social norms. I'm trying to find my way of living without giving away too much of myself to the drudgery of mindless work and routine. I'm also in a rock band, it out and let me know if you dig what you hear.

"Through knowledge we become god-like." I try to live by that and never stop learning.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I plan to travel the US while meeting CS members and enjoying their perspectives. I want to push outside of my box a bit and travel Europe and South America within the next year.


Random BBQ at some mansion in CT. Had a drumset and guitars in the poolhouse. A little piece of heaven for me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have seen the Aurora Borealis from 49,000 feet while flying over the US.

Antelope Canyon in Arizona was like walking through an art exhibit.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am most passionate about music and aviation so I'll gladly share and teach in either of those spaces. Feel free to check out some videos of my flying and making music on my youtube pages.
