About Me


To keep life interesting and enjoyable.


My goal right now is to lead an interesting, enjoyable, and productive life. In general, if it would make a good story I'm in - not because of the story, but because that's one way to know my life will be full of variety and adventure. While in high school, I completed a year of college, but after changing my major about a dozen times, I decided it would be best to take a break and go check out the world. I've already had a few interesting travels - a three hundred mile bike ride, a night stranded in the desert, a two day walk to the foothills and back - but am thirsty for adventure and wisdom.


At this stage in my life, I'm looking for the right questions; answers will come easier when I know the right questions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Because I'm new to the community, I'm hoping to see it from the ground up. As a surfer, I'll see all the best ways to be a great host, so that when I have the means, I can put up and entertain travelers of all sorts.


I've never used CouchSurfer before, but that's not to say I've never left home! On a single trip into the Angeles National Forest, I survived a freeway crash, walking calmly through swarms of bees, almost falling off two cliffs, and the most God-awful protein drink (mixed with Hawaiian punch) that Trader-Joe's offers.


As a perennial student, I'm interested in just about everything. My favorite subjects include biology, engineering, music, politics, robotics, philosophy, and, of course, adventuring!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

After falling 30 feet and damaging the tendons/ligaments in my ankle, I made a makeshift cane out of a PVC pipe I found in a dumpster and walked 3 miles to school - just in time to sit out of P.E.
