About Me

My goal in life is to have as much fun as possible and have the the best stories at the end!!! I hear the phrase "I wish I had your life" a lot. Why? Because I work about 90 days a year and spend the rest of the time traveling the world meeting new, interesting people and exploring this big rock we live on.

Here's a list of where I'll be and where I've been. If you happen to be in the same town as me, I'd love to meet up!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I joined CS in July of 2011 and instantly fell in love with everything that it's about. I've surfed all around Europe, and have hosted a bunch of people at my home in Las Vegas prior to selling it. Even when I'm not surfing, I love to attend CS meetups and join people for exploring new cities together. I'm not sure that my love of travel would be at the level it is without CS.

Interests

I left the music industry awhile ago, but it still has my heart. I love seeing live bands, and often plan my travel around seeing some concerts. Even if you don't have the same taste in music as me, we'll get along great if you have a passion for music.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Seeing as I'm a professional poker player, a lot of people are fascinated when I tell them I won a poker tournament in January of 2011 six figures. Definitely a good day, and a nice validation for my skills.

I'm also the proud owner of a real-life Emmy Award. I'd be happy to tell you more about that sometime.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to say that my job title is "Quality of life improvement specialist". What does this mean? Well, I'm the guy you call if you're trying to find a good deal on a flight or a new laptop. I'm the guy you call if you are looking for a restaurant recommendation that fits your budget. I'm the guy you call if your wish your phone did something but don't know which app to get. Basically, if it involves technology or deals, I'm here to help. :)

What I Can Share With Hosts

PHILOSOPHY

"Live with no regrets."

In high school, I skipped prom, and my mom asked me if I'd regret it later. I told her it didn't matter if I'd regret it, because it's what I wanted then. Why should I do something different to please "future me?" I do what I want to do on any particular day with little regard for how "future me" will view my actions. It's very liberating.

Hedonism

This sounds like such a dirty word, but the literal definition is the pursuit of pleasure. I believe this is more or less how I live my life. Given two options, I'll pick the one that makes my life more enjoyable.

Countries I've Visited
