About Me


explore, grow and love through experience and adventure--inspiring others to do the same


I love moving, changing, and being challenged.
Recreationally, on any given day I may be hiking, camping, bouldering, fly fishing, surfing, snowboarding or playing guitar, frizbee or just about any sport (baseball, tennis, golf, volleyball).

I prefer to be outside around rivers, mountains and oceans with fellows or fellas. An evening with any combination of quality pipe tobacco, starry skies, fire, a beverage and honest conversation makes me very happy.

Words written or spoken with intent inspire me.

I think Life is relationships and it's pretty fascinating how we all affect one another.


love like your Maker and think about yourself less

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm interested in hanging out with you...this includes a shelter to sleep in if I have one at my disposal. If not, let's at least get together and chat.


So good. So rich. Travel as a local.


Nature, People and Truth (and the relationship between the three); climbing all things; water (snorkeling, surfing, fishing); camping; stars and space.

Music, Movies, and Books

Yes please! Krakauer, Lewis, the classics; documentaries, foreign and indie films; alternative, indie, folk poppy with a lil electronic thrown in for my tunes please (the likes of Bon Iver, arcade fire, Sufjan, Father John Misty, m83, etc).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Too many to list, but for starters: Snorkeling off Big Island Hawaii -- specifically swimming through a lava tube 25ft below the surface. Surfing in the Chilean Pacific with penguins was also unforgettable, as was backpacking the Patagonia for a week in the dead of winter.

Teach, Learn, Share

I speak a bit of spanish and love talking about the complexity/diversity of language.

I'm always down for sharing my various life experiences and philosophies that shape who I am.
