About Me


Love Life, Learn 'Lots, and Live Worldwide


I am an American traveler and have been very active in CS since around 2005 as both Host & Guest!



*** I am new to Copenhagen, and still searching for my permanent apartment. When I get setup, I'll update here and host again!

More About Me

EN After 8 years of full-time travel I now live permanently in Copenhagen, Denmark after a year in Tønsberg, Norway. I worked and traveled full-time (365 days per year) for over 4 years and have seen ALOT of the word. Still, MUCH more to see. I stay pretty active; working out, swimming, running, skiing, and surfing regularly. I love cooking, dating, movies, games, dinners, and great conversation. Funny, smart, passionate, genuine people make great company.

ES Hace anos que viajo por tiempo integral trabajando por computadora. Me encanta conocer gente nueva.

PT Faz anos viviendo en Sudamerica. Estou mudando a Europa por Verano pero volto em breve.


More(Info) Coming soon...


EN To Learn and Teach forever. Continue opening myself up to experiences. I enjoy a passion for life and for learning. I love finding new experiences, and sharing old ones

ES Aprender siempre.

PT Hem... beber suco.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I am interested to teach/learn many languages. My best are EN, ES, PT.

ES Cuando tenia un apartamento en Los Angeles estaba un 'host' muchas veces. Ahora solo viajo.

PT Eu gostaria cozhinar para meus 'hosts', bater papo, e mais!

ES Tengo mucho experencia como 'host' y 'surfer'.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've started, run, and sold a successful start up. I've led a company. I've left it all twice to travel. I've run a marathon, I've taught at two major universities, without a masters. I'm a precocious child in the art of life-style design. American, but lived in Latin America for 2-3 years, Europe for 1-2 years, Africa/Caribbean/Mid-East for a year, and Asia for a year. Next up....?

Teach, Learn, Share

EN I teach professionally and personally every day. I learn professionally and personally every minute. I travel in both respects too. I make my life about the things I love.

ES Podriamos trocar minuto por minutos cosas buenas.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I love to talk about life, but avoid politics and religion. I enjoy cooking, playing games. I worked for myself while traveling through dozens of counties. Many travelers want to know how I did it. I'm happy to share.
