About Me

Currently traveling through Honduras and most likely heading to Guatemala for a month or more.

Fell in love with backpacking a few years ago and really don't see a reason to stop. I love gourmet coffee, learning absolutely everything, and great conversation.

Playing music with strangers is something I am asking the universe for. Lately I have rekindled my passion for cooking and would love to learn new techniques or share what I know.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To save money, obviously, but also to meet cool people.

So I don't "officially" have couch surfing experience, but I have had several strangers live on my boats, sail with me, and I love picking up hitchhikers. A friend of mine and I picked up two hitchhikers driving across the States and they stayed with us for weeks in a small van. Talk about tight!

The karma is thick and I can't wait to host once I am finished with this travel.


Gourmet Coffee (barista/roasting/farming), chilling, photography, ballroom dance, playing guitar, writing, reading, walking around strange places, sharing cool videos on YouTube, cooking, learning languages, and I really want to start playing team sports again.

I try to keep up with my martial arts (Kung Fu).

I just entered the world of free diving. Too many hobbies :D
