About Me


To be totally alive until I'm completely dead.


Point Dexter. Nerd Trap. Robot. Designer. Space Cadet. Artist. Yoga geek. Dinosaur friend. Secret Alien. Tree Hugger. Child of the World.


“I am driven by two main philosophies; 
Know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised at how far that gets you.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson

That quote comes the closest I have ever heard that echoes with my personal philosophy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love meeting new people and seeing life from different points of view. I am relatively new to couch-surfing, but not to life as a whole. :P

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbing into an old limestone cave, not open to tourists, in the Maya Mountains in Belize. Most amazing sacred medicine journey ever. Opened my eyes to so many great opportunities and a reconnecting with Earth energy.

Teach, Learn, Share

Anything outdoors. I love being a guide. Best career choice of all time. Ask me anything about kayaking, rock climbing, natural history and animals. I am a treasure trove of ridiculous facts and information.

Yoga! I am always happy to impart some yogic knowledge. Yoga changed my life and I am always keen to get everyone on the same path.

Graphic Design: I can confidently say that it is the one talent that I was born with. Design, aesthetic, drawing, branding, marketing, you name it.

Random General Knowledge. I am a font of random things you might never have known. I wish I could be the collector of Human Knowledge and study forever. I am one of those weirdos who reads textbooks for fun.
