About Me


To live sustainably, raise my consciousness, and meet beautiful people


Sweet, honest, sincere, loving, and responsible. I love all kinds of outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, surfing, and kayaking. I also enjoy doing yoga whenever I can. My last full time job was with a non-profit law firm doing civil rights work. For the past few years, I've been traveling and volunteering on farms and at sustainability centers, (mostly in New Zealand), while doing interesting legal work whenever I can. I just finished an amazing roadtrip through Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico and Utah. I'm looking for a place to purchase some land and perhaps start a small permaculture center.


Follow your heart; strive to live each day in awe and appreciation; nurture the earth and your community

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'll be back in Hawaii in January to teach an environmental justice course at the University of Hawaii law school and hope to have a place to host some couch surfers when i do!


I'm pretty new to couchsurfing, but, so far, it's been amazing. The past few months, I've met some beautiful people in Bozeman, Santa Fe, and Crestone, Colorado.
