About Me

I'm 35, live in Marengo Il. that's about an hour out of Chicago. I'm a foreman at a packaging company (woodshop division) worked in the trades or manufacturing my whole life. Family is very important to me, and have a close group of friends as well. I would do anything for every one of them. I'm super easy to get along with. I'm outgoing,good sense of humor and very respectful.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm going to start to travel. I'm not the one to go to a different city and want to visit all the touristy places. I would love to learn about the REAL city I travel to. I would trust a local over the internet any day, on places that are a must go. I think this is an easier way to meet people and possibly make some friends.


My job,which I love, consumes me during the week. So on weekends I need to get out. I love going to new restaurants,movies,shows, sporting events and most of all, live music. But it's not all about drinking partying and going out. I enjoy a good museum, art exhibit or architecture tour. All that fascinates me. I enjoy learning about other places and cultures.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love music. Rock like Tool, Jack White, Queens of the Stone age, TV on the radio, My morning jacket Etc... Hip hop, Nas, Sage Francis, The Roots, Common, Talib Kweli, Mos Def. Also love blues and jazz. Coming from Chicago I was raised on House music, so I can get out on the dance floor too. Movies... Big Tarantino fan. Favorite movie is Inglorious Bastards, but my 2nd is A Beautiful Mind, so I'm all over the place. Favorite authors are Steinbeck and Dan Brown, again all over the place, haha.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I fully restored a 1972 Roadrunner. Total engine rebuild, redid everything, I mean everything, inside and out. I never did anything like this before. Took me and my cousin a year and a half to complete. Probably around 1500 man hours. Then gave it to my parents for their 30th anniversary.
