About Me

I'm a pretty swell traveler dude from Texas. I like weird places and interesting people. I've lived in 5 countries in the last 10 years, supporting myself mostly by teaching. I recently moved from Haikou to Chengdu, China.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting and learning from different kinds of people. I've also had a lot of people help me during my travels, and I'm eager to pay it forward by helping others when I can.


I'm interested in nearly anything connected with people, music, and travel (even better when they overlap). I especially love electronic music and I'm an occasional DJ. I studied anthropology at university with a focus on evolutionary psychology. I like smoking shisha. I love dancing and karaoke although I am terrible at both. Sometimes I ride a motorcycle.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - Brian Transeau, James Murphy, Simon Posford, Thomas Bangalter, Stuart Price

Movies - Star Wars, Talladega Nights, Mean Girls, UHF, etc. I guess I like dumb comedies?

Books - I tend to read whatever people recommend to me

The OC is the best TV show of all time. Deal with it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I rode on the back of a truck for 3 days through the mountains and villages of Guinea to find "the Grand Canyon of West Africa." still the best adventure I've ever had

Teach, Learn, Share

I can tell you all about Texas and America if you're interested. I can also tell you about the other unique places I've lived.

I teach English, and I'm happy to help anyone who is learning English (speaking, grammar, writing, etc).

I'm pretty good with Windows and various types of software, so I can help with computer stuff.

I know a lot about electronic music (history, technology, etc). I also know a bit about music recording and production.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can try to make proper Tex-Mex breakfast tacos, depending on the ingredients available in your area :)
