About Me

I strive to do things where in that moment, it's all that matters. I was recently climbing a wet rock in Amphitheater Lake in the Grand Tetons while barefoot when I really noticed this feeling. I was scared and excited and focused on only that and I forced myself to reach my goal. It was incredibly tricky but I figured it out and it was an amazing rush. Just a little story about me :)

I left Chicago to travel the world 8 months ago, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. Went to Italy and Thailand twice last year. Just got back from Bonnaroo and Electric Forest directly followed by 9 days in the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. Just spent 2 months in British Columbia, 2 months in Hawaii, a week in Tokyo, a month in Taiwan, a night in England, 3 months in Portugal!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Love the adventure aspect. Hosted a bloke from England once through this site and we had a blast and he's my friend to this day. Awesome experience. The idea of what it's all about is exactly what I'm all about.


I love traveling, music, adventures, my friends and loved ones, dancing, parties, goofing off, camping, nature, meeting people and hearing their stories, MOTORCYCLES, tattoos, reading, weird art, and so much more. Let's meet and discuss!

I also absolutely adore animals. The kind of guy who saves insects that I find in my apartment. There are some exceptions of course.

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite band of all time is TOOL. First band that pops into my head that I am listening to a lot of right now is Sylvan Esso.

Most recent awesome movie I have seen is Danny Collins, which I am just finishing right now.

Really enjoying a book I am reading right now called "Around The World In 50 Years" by Albert Podell.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled ALL over Thailand for a month (twice).
