Well i have worked in construction of some kind for most of my life. I was a Mason, Carpenter, Landscaper, Electrician, and also worked a bit in some coal mines in WV at one point. I am also a certified life coach and will be starting school to be a Massage Therapist in just around a month. So as you can see my skill set is very broad as are my interests. I grew up in the Appalachian Mountains of Western Maryland. When i was 19 I moved to Zambia, Africa for a year to teach 8th grade English and then when i came back to the states lived in Columbus, Ohio for about 3 years. Now i'm back in the Maryland getting ready to go to school again :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I like to travel a lot and have had some really good experiences with couchsurfing. When I was in Italy with some friends we used couchsurfing whenever it was possible and got to meet some really cool people and see parts of Italy that we simply never would have had the opportunity without a local to guide us around. My favorite thing about couch surfing is that most of the people i have met are very like minded people that love to travel and meet new people, plus its always fun to share stories and be a part of someones journey, wherever they might be heading.

Music, Movies, and Books
I'm really not picky when it comes to music. I like a lot of different stuff. The only thing i dont like is country, very likely because i was forced to listen to it all the time growing up in the country...
Movies: Top 5
1. Guardians of the Galaxy
2. V for Vendetta
3. Star Wars
4. Saving Private Ryan
5. Tommy Boy
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I had the chance to Canoe 1000 miles of the Mississippi river last year, which is nearly half of the entire river. We started at the Headwaters in Minnesota and 30 days later took out just before St Louis, Missouri. I hope to finish that adventure within the next 2 years and make it all the way to the golf.
