About Me


to live my life fully til the end


After many years of not quite being sure what my life was about and what I wanted to do with it I suddenly found myself with new interests that really excite me. Those interests started with sound recording and I went back to school and got a degree in Sound Engineering from SF State. A few years later I moved to Istanbul Turkey to try my hand at teaching English. Never a dull moment!

I have led a very colorful life so far which has taken me from performing with all kinds of musical projects when I was younger to dancing hard under the stars with wonderful people on many a summer night to going to different schools to all kinds of new creative outlets as I get older. Along the way I have met so many interesting people that I'm sure I don't come close to remembering them all.

As I move forward in life I look forward to expanding my views of the world and getting more involved with my new found interests all the while making new friends along the way.


My personal philosophy is that I try to live my life as truthfully as possible. I try to be the most accurate representation of the person that I think I am and that I want to be. I try to see the world as it actually is or at least in a way that makes the most logical sense to me all the while understanding and trying to be respectful of the fact that many others do not share my views

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At the moment I'm just participating in CS events but once I'm back in Turkey at the end of the summer I'll begin hosting again.


I traveled across Europe last summer by train by myself and had 3 GREAT couch surfing hosts. What was really wonderful was even when I was staying in hostels, each new country and city I arrived in I would look for couchsurfing get togethers in that city's group and instantly I had a bunch of new friends. I hardly noticed that I was traveling alone.

Shortly after I returned from my trip I hosted my first surfer and a year later I'd met over 30 wonderful surfers.


Music of all kinds (rock, industrial, psytrance, techno, jazz, experimental...), film, adventurous art, computerized entertainment, dancing until it hurts, traveling, meeting new people

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Burning Man festival in the Black Rock desert of Nevada is a truly amazing experience. I've been 6 times and it never ceases to put me in awe.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach people to put together a dandy video of their travels. Just ask.
