About Me

I’m from the US but have lived abroad for three years. I love meeting people from all over the world and learning about new cultures. I’ve been long term traveling off and on for the past five years. I published a book about my MMA career. And I host a podcast featuring interesting people who have taken alternative paths in life! And a YouTube channel where I do crazy travel challenges.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love to read and talk literature. I am always reading a few books, even if I don’t finish every one. I really like Hemingway, Bukowski, Kerouac, London, Dostoevsky. But so many others. I like books that inspire me or are filled with adventure. I could talk all day about books if you let me.

I like all music but I really I love classic rock. Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Grateful Dead. But I listen to just about everything.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Walked 800km across Spain on the Camino de Santiago. Wrote a book. Jumped from a 25 meter bridge in Bosnia.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to talk about languages. I was an English teacher and can get nerdy sometimes 🤓

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook and help you practice English.
