About Me


Being and Listening, Trying and Tasting, Smiling and Asking


Just a guy trying to figure it out for himself just like (and unlike) any other. I value the journey and the end destination, but try to let the journey come first. I try to think deeply, work hard, and laugh at the end of the day. I work in the theatre as an actor, director, and teacher.Last year I was awarded a Watson Fellowship and have since been traveling to various countries around the world studying the relationships between puppets and people in performance. I'm always looking to learn new things and meet new people. Let's get to know one another in person!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far I've only participated in CS as guest on others' couches. I haven't had a permanent place to live since graduating from college, but when I finally land a home, I hope to pay it all forward and host, too.
