About Me


To live life..........


I am a biologist when I am too poor to travel. I work aboard commercial fishing vessels monitoring catch and incidental takes of protected and endangered species. My work can take me to sea for long periods of time and I have worked out of Dutch Harbor/Alaska, Honolulu, the southeast US, and Canada.


I haven't found the answers yet and I keep finding new questions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate by hosting whenever possible(not often enough), hopefully surfing when I get some time off, and telling people about it.


I bounce around a lot so I have slept on a lot of couches. As far as the CS world goes i am just getting started.


The ocean and all its contents. The natural world. People, places, customs, ideas.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went on a catholic(even though im not a catholic) pilgrimmage, walking 500 miles across Spain from France to Santiago de Compestella and then to the ocean.

I would love to learn more languages, a musical instrument, and how to sail properly.
