About Me


Travel the US and make tons of memories and connections along the way!


We are a young couple (Shawn and Shawna) taking a long term trip across the USA beginning in the late summer of this year (2014). Both of us still live in the same town we grew up in and are very ready to see what else this great country has to offer! She is a graphic designer and collage artist with a passion for activism and interior design. He is a guitar teacher and YouTube creator. The decision to travel was a very easy one and we are very excited to get on the road!

Work hard and everything will work itself out. Don't be afraid to follow your gut. Be nice to people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We'll be on the road in August and hope to meet some of you on the way. Traveling down the east coast during fall, across the south during winter, and up the west coast in the spring.


I've been hosted and have hosted folks briefly years ago. My band went on tour in 2009 and the good folks that hosted us were the most generous people we met.

Music, Movies, and Books

So many to list. Both of us are huge fans of science fiction. I like European philosophy and she likes collage and Greek lit. Also we both enjoy Anime.

Shawn is the music buff. His favorite groups include St. Vincent, Phoenix, Radiohead, Daft Punk, Mastodon, Chairlift, Feist, The Police, and Squarepusher.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Both of us studied abroad at the same university (Lorenzo de Medici School) at different times of our lives. Weird. And awesome!

Teach, Learn, Share

Shawn teaches music as a job. He can teach you how to play guitar, bass, drums, how to record and mix, songwriting, post production, etc. Shawna is a graphic designer, she loves teaching design and branding and knows a lot about art and Greek literature.
