About Me


see the world


I'm getting serious writers block for this section. If someone read everything else they would get a good impression of who you are but "all about you" that's like the main section and the first impression. Under such immense pressure I turn to Pancho Villa who's famous last words were, "Don't let it end like this. Tell them I said something."


Do the things you have to do so you can do the things you want to do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've used couch surfing while passing through Japan and Washington. I'm be settling in Osaka by the end of the year and looking to host when I am settled.


I've always been amazed by people willing to open their homes and lives to complete strangers.


I just separated from the US Navy and will be traveling through Europe this summer before going to Japan to start school.

My idea for a route is Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Krakow, Budapest, Vienna, Venice, Florence, Rome, and Naples. I would love to meet people along the route as I'm traveling solo or get some pointers from experienced backpackers.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I just got done working a 12 hour shift at a burger place while in college in Wisconsin. It was around ten o'clock and I was deciding what I wanted to do for the night. I didn't see anything good on TV and wasn't sleepy. I thought "I'd like to go to California." I laughed and then ten minutes later I was on the road. I drove for almost 24 hours finally falling asleep in sketchy Motel not knowing which state I was in."
