About Me


To find a way of living that we can live with


My wife Ashley and I set off on a round the world trip in July 2011. So far we've spent about 9 months in Central America, and have just entered Europe.

We are both Vegetarians

You can read all about our travels on our blog http://traveledearth.com


Time = Wealth. Spend it wisely.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We've hosted, we've surfed. Mostly, we've met some really great friends.

Music, Movies, and Books

We read a lot, combined over 50 books in 10 months. Mostly fiction, some how-to books on writing and web programming, and the odd historical work.

Recently we started watching some documentaries. We'd be glad to share some from our collection if you are interested in expanding your personal vision.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well, we've done a fair bit thus far in our lives. The best was probably quitting our professional jobs, selling our house, and travelling the world! It's going to be hard to beat.

Teach, Learn, Share

We both want to improve our Spanish, and would love to learn more about healthy cooking/farming
