About Me


Tricycling across Asia making killer videos and podcasts. It's kinda a long story but basically my professional film maker friend Matt is triking across the world and I'm joining him for the first part across Asia. For more info, check out


I'm a teacher and and actor who spends his time traveling, exercising, and having fun. I'm forever seeking to better myself physically, mentally, and spiritually. I LOVE LIFE :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've done hotels, motels, hostels, camping, and even sleeping in the street before. All of them are awesome experiences but some of my favorite traveling has been had by meeting and staying with amazing people through CS! Although I am unable to host currently, I have done so in the past and love that as well.

Music, Movies, and Books


Pretty much open to anything. Currently listening to: Tame Impala, Empire of The Sun, Daft Punk, Kings of Leon, and anything my more musically inclined friends throw my way.


Some of my all time favorites are: BraveHeart, The Lord of The Rings, The Big Lebowski, Sideways, Amelie, Predator, Office Space, 28 Days Later, Pulp Fiction, and Eyes Wide Shut. Also really love a good documentary.


Currently reading: You Are The Placebo by Joe Dispenza. Enjoy reading anything from Herman Hesse, Bukowski, Tolkien, Jack London, and many others.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Crazy wild coincidences that defy all odds are probably one of my favvvvorite things to experience, and I've had a few!

Teach, Learn, Share

Hmmm...I can teach you some of my tricks of the trade when it comes to teaching and acting. I can probably coach you into better shape. At least I'll try :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

My traveling partner Matt and I are doing podcasts and video on the road. We would love to include any hosts and other interesting people we meet in them (only if they want to!). We would also be glad to provide professional quality photos taken with Matt's Canon Mark III.
