About Me


Take my wife on her first trip through Europe. Visit some couchsurfing friends, family and gain some new experiences. Learn more about permaculture, biochar and sustainable living. We are arriving in Paris September 12 and we'll be traveling until the end of October 2016.


My name is Sean. I recently married an amazing woman and we are now living in Eugene Oregon. We just arrived in June 2013 and are having a great time. We love exploring the area, going to festivals and meeting new people.

I am a social media marketing and content manager for a small manufacturing business in the world of concrete, alternative home construction, natural disaster shelters, etc...

I have been part of the couchsurfing community for many years and have surfed a number of couches throughout the US and a few international locations. I've met amazing people and have many great CS friends.

I love Mexico and spent a semeter there in 2008 for college. I subsequently returned to teach for a year and met a beautiful Mexican woman there. We recently got married and are doing the visa stuff right now. She arrived in late 2012 and we spent about 8 months living in Bethlehem PA together before I received a job offer in Oregon.

I am fairly healthy, I don't smoke and I pretty much hate all chain restaurants. I love thai and indian food and I'll never say no to an invitation for either.


I want to get the most out of my life, I believe that means I cannot stay in one place for too long, I cannot meet the same people every day, and I cannot pass up an opportunity I have not yet encountered.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been a couchsurfer since 2006. I have slept on a number of couches across the US and parts of Europe. While I lived in Mexico I hosted a number of Americans, Mexicans and Europeans. I have hosted in PA a few times and look forward to new visitors in Oregon.
