About Me

Hi! Unfortunately I only have space for one person to surf, at least until it gets cool enough for people to pitch a tent in the backyard. Please take this into consideration when sending me a request so I know you've read my profile. Thanks!

I'm an active guy who enjoys biking, hiking, ultimate frisbee, yoga, acroyoga, rock climbing, etc etc etc. I'm a big nerd and tend to be interested in many things. I've spent a decent chunk of my life volunteering and working for social causes. I absolutely love to cook and worked as a baker for some years.

I'm from central Illinois but have lived in California, Guatemala, Panama as well as Tucson.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've been on couchsurfing for many years and haven't always been an active user but am finally able to host people, which I think is a great way to give back to the community. Hopefully later I'll be able to benefit from the community in kind.


Anthropology, medicine, public health, stats and data, everything nerdy.

Cooking, baking, woodworking, everything DIY.

Cycling, ultimate frisbee, yoga, weightlifting, everything active.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can provide some good hiking and camping advice for southern Arizona. I can prattle on endlessly about health and disease statistics, and I'm an eager student of acroyoga so could potentially share some basics.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'll probably offer to cook something for you.
