Chi sono

CURRENT MISSION

act with compassion, positivity and gratitude. experience life without the need for photographic proof

ABOUT ME

Born in the 80s, went to school for a really long time, got a serious job. Quit serious job, hit the road, adventured my brains out.

Priorities changed. Firmly in favor of hard work with intermittent retirement; life is too precious to wait until 65 to start living. Takes a significant amount of time off every few years in search of new expeditions. From December 2016 through April 2017 I traveled and climbed in Chile and Argentina. Now wrapping up the summer in Ecuador. Time spent functioning without a phone, a proper bathroom or other modern creature comforts for at least a week every few months, I find, is necessary for the soul.

PHILOSOPHY
avoid the Dunning–Kruger effect
embrace simplicity- wanting and appreciating the things I already have

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Actively seeking to learn from and share ideas with positive, inspiring folks along the way. Hoping to meet more CSers this year as I begin my next journey to Patagonia in 2017.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Apprehensive at first, but since having joined CS in 2010, I have had nothing but great experiences with the community.

Made it into my second ever host, Seattle´s very own Shawn Saleme's article in the Seattle Globalist.

It's been a fulfilling experience to ping pong back and forth between surfing, camping and backpacker living. All are important components to traveling since each style marches to rather different beats and rhythms. I don´t use CS as merely a means to find a free place to stay for a night. While a couch is always appreciated, it´s the interaction with a local host that makes logging into CS worthwhile.

Una cosa incredibile che ho fatto

backcountry ski-toured in the Pyrenees, kayaked the Napali Coast, slept under the stars in the middle easten desert, lived out of a car and solo adventured for over a year, seen the sunrise from above the horizon, cycled down the western coast of North America, traveled a lot of the South African coast by foot, surfed with dolphins, scaled some pretty cool rock features, jumped off of various bridges and out of various planes, swam above a pod of Southern Right Whales, saw the sun rise on Easter Island, saw the sun set in the Galapagos, seen puppies being born!

Insegna, impara, condividi

you could say that I know heaps about the outdoors, so if you're stranded on an island with me, consider yourself safe. until I get really hungry.
