About Me


Do being everything.


Hey All! My name's Anthony and I grew up in Georgia, studied to be an engineer, and then went on a 2.5 year journey traveling through Latin America and did a 25,000 mile motorcycle journey in parts of Africa.

I'm now settled in Austin, Tx and am loving every minute of it. Its a great city, full of life, great people, and there is ALWAYS something going on! Anything from music, fun nights out, hiking, boating, or kayaking would typically fill up any Austin resident's days!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In the past I've hosted and surfed, but at the moment still trying to figure out a great living situation, so not hosting at the moment!


First experience was in Fiji on a beautiful farm and its been getting better every day...

Music, Movies, and Books

my interest in music is quite dynamic as well, but this is a tid bit for now:

Sixto Rodriguez -- perhaps the best documentary of all time "searching for sugar man"

Chocquibtown from Colombia -- crazy little group.

Mano Chao, Calle 13, Mumford and Suns, Outkast, Dentleman's dub Club, City and Colour, iron and wine, Fat freddy's drop, Brett Dennen.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There are so many! Some things while traveling, others while here in Austin.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love learning, so anything anybody wants to share with me, I'm all ears. I've learned so much from others traveling. How to listen, how to try and be more open minded, how to accept others' viewpoints etc. Its always a work in progress :)

And I will take all the time in the world to teach you whatever I possibly can.
