About Me

I am just getting back from spending 2 years working in and around Sub-Saharan Africa. Moving back to Richmond to start work. More than anything I love traveling and getting to know new cultures and learning new languages. I am also passionate about climbing, mountain biking, and white water kayaking. Looking forward to my next adventure back home!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I don't have a place to stay in Richmond yet, but I'm moving back September 6th. I would actually love to find a place that I could rent, so if you have an open room and are willing to live with a fellow couch surfer, please count me in.

Music, Movies, and Books

I've been on a huge afro kick lately, but I'm also a big fan of electro swing and other eclectic types of music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ride around Malawi, Tanzania, and Kenya on a Chinese motorcycle that could fall apart at any minute. As I'm writing, I'm in Zanzibar, next to the bike
