About Me

I love music and traveling, but my true passion is in people -- meeting and getting to know new friends and keeping in contact with old friends.

I left my life in New York City to pursue a career as a travel blogger. How that looks is yet to be determined, but I know I will refine it along the way.

I live by the following mottos:
- Do everything in life once and the fun things twice
- If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change your attitude
- Love, gratitude and kindness are the pillars of my life

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love Couchsurfing! I surfed all over the US in 2011-2012, hosted at my apartment in Santa Barbara in the summer of 2012, and surf and participated in meet ups during my travels from 2012-2015.

I truly enjoy connecting with people and seeing life of a city from an individual's perspective. I've learned so much from staying with others and can't wait to see what the future holds!


- Listening to, discovering, and sharing music
- Watching comedies, animated and thought-provoking movies
- Traveling as much as possible
- Meeting and getting to know new people
- Learning new things and from other people
- Seeing beautiful sites and being out in nature
- Meditation, positive psychology, and almost anything in the self help section of a bookstore

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I'm a very big fan of R&B, hip-hop and Motown, anything that has a good beat, and am a very mainstream kind of guy.

Movies: I love animated movies, action movies, comedies, musicals, science fiction and movies that really make you think. If they provoke emotion, I'm probably down.

Books: I enjoy all kinds of thrillers and anything to do with positive psychology and or falls under the "self-help" genre.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I feel like the last eight years of my life has been something straight out of the movies.

Really eye opening experiences:
- Being in South Africa during Nelson Mandela's passing
- Moving to NYC to pursue a career as an actor
- Working for a non-profit on an American military base in Kuwait
- Doing volunteer work in New Orleans just after Hurricane Katrina

...many more stories to share and hopefully many more to come!

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: Positive psychology, basic bartending skills, how to remember names, some Spanish

Learn: I really want to learn astronomy, how to sing, and photography

Share: Stories upon stories upon stories!
