About Me


To interact with all walks of life. To respect and cherish the Earth. To see how far I can go and who will be there with me


I enjoy leaving my comfort zone. In fact I'd say I get a fix out of it. Outdoor activities tend to be my first go to for such experiences, followed by travel. I get a great kick out of traversing different environments, and facilitating such traverses with creative, unorthodox means. There is something special about the interactions had with other humans and the environment when one is traveling. I like to break the things Babylon tells us are rules.


When you see something new, learn the good and carry it. Ignore the bad.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, surfing, and giving and receiving travel advice.


Couchsurfed in California, Colorado, Spain and Germany.


I like seeing happy people. I like seeing and learning how they go about their lives. I try to learn the people I interact with such that I may internalize the good I see and avoid the bad. That way, when I go meet the next person, I am able to carry on something from the last person creating a web of personal "trade," a trade of life perspectives and personality characteristics.
