About Me

I was born in California. Moved around a lot as a child. Spent time in Portland, Hawaii and Missouri. Went to college in Rochester New York, Portland and New Orleans. I teach mostly undergraduate students science stuff.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I wanted to find a way to find connections in new places I happen to visit. I like to travel, as of now mostly in the US, since I am a teacher I usually travel out west over the summer and camp etc. I find that the local experience is very important as far as insight and recommendations. This might eliminate the feeling of being completely lost in a new place and may provide a good experience and reason to do something neat to the person hosting. I would also like to host when I am able to do so, this varies on when I'm off work etc.
