About Me


Mad to live, mad to love, mad to be saved... MAD to travel!!


I am a fun person to be around with a pretty good sense of humor. I really enjoy being goofy and making people laugh.
Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, I now live in Portland for the second time in my life and loving it. Taking advantage of all that the city life has to offer as well as great outdoor activities that can only be found in a city like Portland.


Life is about balance. Too much of anything is too much and I think it is important that we find balance in all areas of our lives.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I was a city Ambassador and founder of the Phoenix Metro group which has grown to become a thriving CS community. I am very proud of the work I put into helping the Phoenix Metro grow and have planned and participated in many local CS events. Because of my experiences there I have made some lifelong friends and bring that same passion to the Portland community.I also participated in The War On Them project in the capacity of Executive Producer. As far as I know, it was the first CouchSurfing related internet "tv show" based on CouchSurfing experiences of Bobby and Eric. You can learn about the project and see all of the episodes at www.thewaronthem.com


I am a photographer and I enjoy traveling and getting out to do outdoorsy types of things like camping, hiking, skiing and scuba diving. Next on the list: sailing, kayaking, wind surfing and fly fishing.

Also, I enjoy finding interesting alternatives to the bar scene and so far I have done a good job at finding some odd but fun things to do, but then again this is Portland where you can experience any number of weird things going on in any given day.

Music, Movies & Books

I watch movies, read books and listen to music. All three I do regularly. :)
