About Me


A link to some of my music:


Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now. - Goethe

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to help out any way that I can and sharing my music with other people. When I am through with my travels, I will open up whatever living space I have again for couch surfers.

I want to be a part of local people when I travel.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've hiked a few fourteeners ( Colorado's taller mountains). A few of them were with my best friend. Mountains and music won't let you down.

I went skydiving over the Rocky Mountains in Longmont, Colorado; truly an amazing experience!

Ran marathons in the following cities:
Denver (Colorado), Las Vegas (Nevada), Los Angeles (California), Provo(Utah), Albuquerque(New mexico), New York city, Little rock(Arkansas), New Orleans (Louisiana), Jackson (Mississippi), Detroit (Michigan), Chicago (Illinois).

I rode my bicycle solo and self-supported across America. Camping out along the side of the roads and staying at couchsurfers' homes in the major cities. Amazing experience! Also bicycled around France and hitchhiked/ took trains in Western Europe- met some incredible people and I'm truly thankful for those experiences.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you a little bit about bicycles if you like or maybe teach you a few chords on the guitar.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can offer music, stories, myself.
