About Me


A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. Albert Einstein


I'm a 22 year old who can't quite scratch the itch of travel. As most know on this site it is intoxicating and yields the largest opportunities for self growth in almost every field of life. When I am not traveling I am going to school for photography in Kalamazoo Michigan. In a few months I start my courses on getting my Pilots License. I play guitar, love good food, and it's hard to go a few days without talking to my family. Yep, that's me in a nutshell.


Today, we make history. It's not what happens, but what we do with it. Live inspired.

Id rather a 95% failure rate on 100 dreams then to end my life with the question, "What if?"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately I have no couch or place of my own at the moment so I only take and not give. Soon this will change but as for now I am very appreciative of anyone who is able to host me


Stayed in a beautiful loft in OK City, OK. Had a very interesting conversation about the Burning Man Art Festival. Stayed with four other couch surfers in Brussels Belgium over the 2010 summer.

Music, Movies, and Books

Into the Wild - Like always the book is much better than the movie. Forest Gump, Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction (Ironically all three came out in 94') Fight Club, Seven, Dumb and Dumber, Physics for Future Presidents, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Tool, Sublime, John Butler Trio, Jimi Hendrix, Dispatch, State Radio, and many many many more.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Luckily I have seen many amazing things that people have done for others. I am fortunate to be able to have a positive feeling about the human condition.

The most amazing thing I have been apart of is being able to see my nephew take his first step.
