About Me


To experience the world and everything it has to offer.


I'm born and raised in Las Vegas but I love to get out and see the world. If I could travel everyday of the rest of my life, I would be happy. I love seeing new things and meeting new people. I love movies, music, and anything related to the arts. I love good conversation over good food with good people.


One life. Live it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and host as often as possible!


I have hosted people from all over including China, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, France and more. I've also surfed couches in many countries. I've had fantastic experiences with couchsurfing and have made many new friends along the way!


Film, photography, traveling, sports, meeting new people, making new friends, learning, hunting bigfoot, making money, making music, adrenaline rushes and generally anything that is fun!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've watched the sun set over the Pacific Ocean and seen the sun rise over the Atlantic. I've jumped out of a plane, jumped off a bungee platform, and I'd jump at the chance to do them both again. I've seen the Great Barrier Reef, the Coliseum in Rome, the Acropolis in Greece, the Pyramids in Egypt, and I've slept many nights under the lights of the Las Vegas Strip. I've spent endless hours enjoying the company of my friends and even more hours enjoying the company of complete strangers. I've seen beautiful beaches, experienced amazing sites, and met incredible people...and I hope this is just the beginning.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think we all have something to teach one another and something to learn from one another.
