About Me


very simple: change the world and travel while doing it. also, to find the perfect bloody mary...


I spend way too much time on computers. When I'm not on a computer, I'm either wandering around with my camera, or in transit to hopefully someplace wonderful.

I eat plants(mostly), into electronic music, and rock and everything in between and not between. I play guitar, but I'm considering selling my electric for a better camera...sigh.


dream your life, then live your dreams

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I host or guide whenever possible. I attend CS meetups to meet new folks and see old ones :)


I surfed around the southwest U.S. and that was my first time using the site and it worked out great! Now i'm addicted and I love hosting whenever I get a chance.

I recently completed a year long trip around the world and surfed from Scotland to India and it was A-MAZ-ING. Now I"m sticking put in San Fran and hoping to give back some CS love :)


Photography, using technology for good, not evil, music, biking, running, yoga(if i'm in the mood), international travel!
