About Me

Couchsurfing notes:
- I usually say No to requests less than 10 days away
- I do not accept generic requests, please add some context, personality, details!
- I normally don't requests from people without at least 1 verification method, and, 3 references. If you need to build references, first invite people to coffee only, have a nice time, then ask them to leave you a reference :)

CURRENT MISSION: To avoid living in a hostel environment...

Words to describe me:
- adventurous
- gregarious
- curious
- a little bit eclectic
- a little bit traditional
- social introvert

- was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and have moved to/from here several times
- grew up with a love for the Rocky Mountains
- spent my youth doing long distance running and mountain biking.

Since then, I've served in the US Navy, worked at Facebook, worked in tech startups, and explored a bunch of different hobbies, from long distance running to crossfit to acroyoga.

I've traveled to 8 different countries, went SCUBA diving in Hawaii, rappelling in Vermont, eaten fancy dates with a government minister in Oman, sailed in the Atlantic, worked at a humanitarian drone startup featured on the BBC, and lots of other things.

Some words to describe me: curious, open-minded, grounded, non-judgemental, playful, and trusting.

I love: my niece and nephews, snowboarding, meeting new people, trying new kinds of ethnic food, exploring new place, swing and salsa dancing, traveling...

Favorite quotes:

Imagination is more important thank knowledge. - Albert Einstein

Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. - Howard Thurman
