About Me


I am bringing my positive outlook to the world.


Well I make movies and enjoy life. I get up early in the morning and I try to run every other day. I read as much as I can. I am always smiling and find the beauty in everything on earth. I do not watch television.


Appreciate every moment in life for what beauty it has. Life is short and one must make the best of it while sharing these moments with the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have just begun to be a part of this community but my goal is to take a picture of everyone that I meet in this project. My goal is for each of these pictures to become their primary picture. Then I will create a portfolio of all of these people in their own environments, each telling the story of their lives in a single photo.
