About Me


Blast through grad school and back on the open road


Travel to 50+ countries, 6 years living/traveling abroad. Now, using my travel experiences to inform my graduate studies in the anthropology of tourism.


Adventure, excitement, a Jedi craves not these things... but a Couchsurfer does.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


On account of vagrancy and stints of single room apartments for about 3 months a piece, I haven't really had the opportunity to host many people. But, I always make myself available to meet up with Couchsurfers in the area. Looking to start hosting soon...


snowboarding, traveling, guitar, vagrancy, photography, all things Japan, etc.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Against Me, Arctic Monkeys, Streetlight Manifesto, (old school) Weezer, The Get Up Kids, Protest the Hero... punk/rock/hardcore/ska

Books: anything by Bill Bryson, Shantaram, Dragonball

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just one? Um... snorkling with whale sharks in the Philippines was pretty outrageous. I mean, how many times am I gonna be able to swim alongside a dozen (not at the same time, of course) of the world's biggest fish?

Anything involving scuba has been amazing as well.

My festival tour across 3 continents and 30 countries was undoubtedly one of the coolest things I've ever done.
