About Me

UPDATE
I am newly reactive on Couchsurfing since I am able to travel internationally again (Spring 2022)! I would love to meet people from around the globe and learn about their amazing experiences! I'm traveling to Ireland for a wedding and then heading to Scotland for 10 days after. Would love to meet up with some locals or fellow adventurers!

CURRENT MISSION

See beautiful places, meet amazing people, and experience all that life has to offer

ABOUT ME

I'm an ordained minister, so please call me Father Todd, or daddy. Totally kidding, but I didn't get ordained to officiate my sister's wedding.

Whether it be crashing on someone's couch for a night or spending a few days with a host, I am up for anything. I am here to meet people, travel, and have great experiences. I am easygoing, upbeat, open minded, and always ready to try something new.

I love to spend time getting to know people and hearing their stories. Some of the best times are spent just hanging out and talking.

PHILOSOPHY

Live, laugh, learn, meet new people, create new friendships and have an amazing time

I think that every perspective is valuable and that every voice should be heard. The most important lessons in life are learned through experience and there is nothing more valuable than a worldly experience which can only be gained through exposure to new and different things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was in New Zealand, I bungee jumped over the Nevis and loved it so much I knew I had to go skydiving. I then skydived over Fox Glacier. It was incredible to see Mt. Cook and the Alps, the Glacier, the forests, then the plains full of grazing cows, and then the golden beaches and the Tazman sea. It was so powerful that my partner at the time and I went skydiving again over Lake Taupo. She was so inspired by the experience that she started a women's empowerment group that takes women skydiving.
