About Me

**EDIT** Due to Covid-19, I will not be accepting guests through May 2021. Stay safe everyone! 🦠😷

I'm passionate about many things in life, mainly living life the best way you can! I’m an entrepreneur from Houston, Texas. Studied at Architecture at the University of Houston, and while working for an architecture firm right out of college, I decided to follow my heart, take a risk, jump ship, and start my own event production company.... so now, I produce large scale events like marathons and music festivals. My hobbies include film making, photography, kayaking, and outdoor adventures.

Current Goals:
Squeeze every drop from life. Keep working on my company and jump in short travel adventures when I can find cheap flights. Even if it's just for a night or two. I'm looking forward to doing more Couchsurfing and making new friends!

When I Travel:
I originally made my Couchsurfing profile a while back but just recently started using it more recently. I enjoy traveling solo- I feel it offers a way to learn more about your own self, and the opportunity to meet new people and learn about other humans . I'm very friendly and easy to get along with. Also organized and I will communicate with you well.

Outlook:
I'm passionate about living. I live by this saying: "In life, you only get to do so many things, so make them great things." I enjoy meeting people, making friends, experiencing new perspectives, and learning about others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm a life addict. I love traveling to new places and meeting new people. This includes offering my place to others as a way to grow, learn, listen, and experience how other people live! I want to open my home to wonderful people and hope for the same connections in return.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I think of adventures, two things come to mind, two days where I felt fully alive and awakened.

One of the days was climbing Half Dome in Yosemite with no cables for the first time. We had the whole place to ourselves and soaked it all up. Highly recommend!

The second experience was just after I bought my first kayak. My buddy also bought one just alike. We had our first kayaking adventure on Tahoe and crossed rubicon bay just before the sun set. There was something special about that day. I felt fully alive! Check out my kayaking pics! I usually travel with it.

One of my favorite things to do when visiting a beautiful place is wake up for sunrise and hike or kayak out to a special place to experience it.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you about: film, photography, adventures, entrepreneurship, architecture. But most of all, good vibes and encouragement to do what you love.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Probably some interesting stories and I'm always down to buy you a beer! Also- I have a foldable kayak that I travel with often, so If you have a kayak and want to hit the water, that would be AWESOME!
