About Me


I'm an ex-cinematographer who worked as a filmmaker based in Los Angeles, CA and Bangkok, Thailand for over 10 years (National Geographic, MTV, etc).

I now own an event production company producing art exhibits, fashion shows, and concerts all over the globe.

I'm based in LA but spend most of my time in Asia and Central/South America.

I don't have time for philosophy, just time to DO!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've hosted, partied, and traveled with CSers from all over the world...I love CS!...The project has opened my eyes to a world of adventure through simply sharing what I can easily give; space on my couch.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swam with a baby elephant of the coast of Thailand; watched 200+ sweaty Nicaraguans go crazy over $2 bets on rooster fights in Leon; faced off with a Kodiak bear on Kodiak Island, Alaska; had the opportunity to work with such great actors and musicians as The Foo Fighters, Marilyn Manson, Tom Sizemore, Joshua Jackson, Ron Perlman, Laura Prepon, Stanely Tucci.
