About Me


To experience the world one couch at a time.


I am currently taking a year off of college. I was attending West Point Military Academy in New York and I wanted some time to think if the Army is right for me. So I live in Israel for this year. I am currently a shepherd , and it has given me a lot of time to think and relax. It has been great to get away from the go go go of America. My visa ends in March so it looks like I will come to Europe and go back. But I am a poor shepherd so I will try and coach surf my way through. We will see.


Live life and worry less.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to host when I am home, but I am currently traveling and having a blast.


Brand new. No experience yet.


I love any kind of sport, also hiking, playing Texas Hold 'em rock climbing, seeing ancient ruins, and learning about other cultures.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The old city of Jerusalem is amazing. It is great to see the inner divisions as well as the cooperation. This site is holy to a lot of religions, and you can sense the tension as you walk in. Definitely a must see!
