To engage with the world as a practical mystic, a performer, and a nomad.
A traveller, a teaching artist, a conversationalist. I travel light and simple, love to learn, and stay true to my roots as a farm boy and the son of an innkeeper.
Keep Calm and Carry On.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
When travelling, I prefer to couchsurf over anything else. I am based in Phoenix, AZ, and so am more than happy to meet up for coffee or otherwise be engaged with the community.
Couchsurfed now off-and-on since 2011. I've traveled a lot, and stayed in hostels, inns, and sometimes with a host family. It's also worth noting a grew up in an inn, so hospitality is in my blood!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I'm a storyteller, so I guess you'll have to ask me in person. :-)
Teach, Learn, Share
Life is not nearly as complicated as people sometimes want to make it. But it is complex, wonderful, and awe-inspiring. Seek out moments where you can have beautiful experiences, encounter amazing people, and all throughout find the place where you can express yourself.
What I Can Share with Hosts
As a guest, I am clean and respectful, and what I love most is a good conversation. Frankly, the main reason to couch-surf is to meet cool and interesting people. So I tried to offer the best of myself for my hosts.
