About Me


In 2012 I lived in a VW Vanagon and traveled the US. Now I have another van and am heading back out on the road. Likely sticking to the western states this time around.

About Me:

Graduate of Portland State University. Double business major. Currently working as a photographer, and hope to do so the rest of my life. I moved to Portland from a small town 3 hours south of here, about 7 years ago. Been living the big city life, as big as Oregon has to offer, and loving it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed many a driveways via CS, and hosted some folks while living back in Portland. Now I am back out on the road seeing new places and meeting new people. Let's grab a pint!


During my 2012 road trip, I finally stayed on CS'ers couch while in Vegas. Other then that, I have not really couch surfed before, I have however been driveway surfing since January 2012 in my Vanagon, making my way about the US for a 6 months. I hosted a few folks in PDX when I got back, and am now back out on the move.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled to Ireland for Saint Patrick's Day with my friend. Then back to Germany and rode the train down to Munich. Seen a lot in three weeks, had a lot of fun.

More recently: (2012) Traveled the US living in a VW Vanagon for 6 months. Down the west coast, then all the way to the Atlantic. Just working from the road, staying with CS'ers and having the time of my life!

Teach, Learn, Share
