About Me


I'm currently living at Arcosanti, and urban laboratory and learning play-ground. I'm experiencing the wonders and challenges of constructing community and spaces that are conducive to an improved human landscape.


I'm always trying to learn something - a sponge for information. I love to meet new places and people. I like to visit cities but I find myself in the country side or in true nature. I take a lot of workshops. I enjoy spontaneous travel, living out of a backpack or a car, getting lost in the woods, changing my mind. I'm generally laid-back and open. I subscribe to a very practical sort of spirituality that helps me understand this crazy world.


Give as much love as you are able.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have couchsurfed in Denmark and Colorado. When I finally get myself a real place of my own I will pay back the favor with pleasure! I have yet to have a negative experience with couchsurf. And even when I've traveled and not used couchsurf, when I meet people who are savvy with this travel mentality of exchange, I feel I am among my tribe. I am safe and accepted. Even if we don't know each other, there is a sense in people like travelers that we all give a lot of trust and acceptance and in return to world is completely open to us. I love this. This fills me with hope and reassures me that while my life if a little unusual, it is a really great one so far and mainly because of the wonderful strangers I've bumped into.

Teach, Learn, Share

Arcosanti is a very special place that I believe should be shared with and influenced by as many open-minded, powerful, special humans as possible. Visiting here can provide a valuable insight on to a particular approach of urban design, architecture, and community-forming. There's a lot to learn and much to be inspired by.
